    Compensation for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder


    How to find out an estimate of your compensation for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

    When something dreadful happens to a person such as a violent knife attack, a serious car accident or being in a war they can suffer after the event. This is called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, it is a psychological condition which can happen to anyone of any age who has had a dreadful experience. Symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can happen directly after the frightening experience or they can take years to manifest themselves.

    Unfortunately, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was not recognised until after World War I when a large number of soldiers relived their memories of the atrocities in the trenches in their minds. At the time it was referred to as ‘shell shock’ or ‘battle fatigue syndrome’. These days it is a recognised syndrome and there are a variety of ways to treat it.

    Nightmares and flashbacks

    Symptoms can include: headaches, stomach and chest pains; nightmares and flashbacks to the incident; shaking and sweating; dependency on alcohol and other drugs; severe depression, anxiety and other phobias; feeling detached from those around you; concentration difficulties; lack of sleep; sudden outbursts of anger and lack of sleep.

    If you think that you are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, you should seek medical attention immediately.
