Is cumulative PTSD in police officers a presumptive injury?

Most people associate post-traumatic stress disorder with soldiers and others in the military; however, PTSD is as prevalent among police officers in California and elsewhere. The difference is that soldiers often develop PTSD as the result of a single, exceptionally traumatic incident, while the ongoing stress and trauma that police officers experience are part of their daily lives. Experts call this type of PTSD cumulative PTSD, and it typically takes a heavy toll not only on their lives but also on the lives of their families.

Californian residents who are attacked by dogs can end up with severe wounds. Some victims have been described as being "in shreds" by the time they reach the emergency care unit, with the damage they have suffered through making them virtually unrecognizable. Naturally, some individuals who go through these attacks may also suffer from mental or emotional trauma because of the intensity of the damage faced.
