New Jersey Dog Bite Injury Law Firm

PTSD Resulting from Dog Attacks

When you have been the victim of a vicious dog attack, some of the most pervasive injuries may not be visible to the human eye. Frequently, when you have been exposed to the raw aggression of an uncontrolled dog, you can experience severe emotional distress or a nagging fear that can make it difficult for you to participate in many of the ordinary acts of day-to-day life. You have a right to seek compensation for what is known as post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. The office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.

At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have more than 40 years of experience representing personal injury victims throughout central New Jersey. We don’t take the same approach with every client. Instead, we carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case so we can concentrate our efforts on finding ways to get the outcome you want, whether through a verdict in court or a settlement that meets your needs. We understand the emotional and financial challenges that come with a personal injury. We will promptly respond to all your calls and e-mails, and will keep you fully apprised of all developments in your case, as well as of your options and chances of success.

With more than four decades in practice, we have built a solid reputation for thorough preparation and positive results. Many of our new cases come to us as referrals from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients.

Dog Bite Victims — Dealing With Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD is a condition not normally associated with dog attacks, but the definition fits. PTSD has been identified as a mental health condition that “is triggered by a terrifying event.” If you have been the victim of an attack by a vicious dog, you know just how terrifying it can be. It can result in a wide range of conditions, such as nightmares or other sleep disturbances, irritability and anxiety. With children, it can lead to regressive behavior, such as bed-wetting or thumb sucking, and may cause problems in attention or focus at school or during other activities.

We will help you pursue full and fair compensation for any injuries you have suffered as a result of a vicious dog attack. We will help you seek damages for all that you have lost, from wages and income to companionship or consortium to the costs of medical or psychological treatment.
