A Review of Post-Traumatic Neurosis
Post-traumatic neurosis became an important concept in legal medicine over a century ago when bodily injuries and severe emotional stress were experienced in connection with railroad accidents. The disorder has especially flourished since the advent of the automobile and whiplash injuries. While nowhere specifically defined in this volume, the title alludes to the emotional and perhaps to the neurological consequences of acute physical injury.
