Causes of PTSD and how to make accident claims

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is an emotional illness which can cause severe symptoms which make it very difficult to get on with your day to day life. The symptoms are brought on sometime after a traumatic event. Many people think that PTSD will come on right away, but this is not the case, as often your body is so busy dealing with the physical injuries you have sustained that PTSD does not come on until weeks or even months later.

For this reason, many people don’t realise that this is what they are suffering from and so leave it quite a long time to get treatment. Many people also don’t realise that the situation they have dealt with can cause PTSD, so here are some of the causes of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, in order to identify whether you may have it.

  • Road accidents. This type of accident is very frightening at the time, can often come with severe injuries which take some time to recover from, and are all about a total loss of control, making them emotionally resonant.
  • Violent attacks. An attack which was unprovoked and unexpected can take away your power and leave you feeling vulnerable and unsafe at all times, around all kinds of people.
  • Witnessing death. In particular, violent death, but watching the death of a loved one can trigger PTSD due to feeling so helpless and teaming this feeling with grief. For those that have never experienced death, the death of a loved one can easily cause these feelings.
  • Military service. Many soldiers who have come back from the front lines have been found to be suffering from PTSD, and should be screened for the disorder before they start back in civilian life.
