    Help with a claim in Llandrindod Wells


    Identify trauma in a child

    After an accident or serious incident, it is natural to feel traumatised and you may need help with a claim in Llandrindod Wells. It can be far more upsetting if you feel that your child may have also be traumatised by the event, and if you don’t know for sure, this can raise your stress levels as well. Any serious accident or incident should be considered a possibility for trauma in a child, but you should also be aware that in many cases, children are far more resilient than adults, and that your child may well be feeling better than you are.

    Know what may be traumatic for a child

    Situations that can be traumatic for a child may not feel traumatic for an adult and vice versa. Generally, if a child feels that their life, or the lives of those close to them are threatened, they may feel traumatised afterwards. Similarly, any event which made a child feel very vulnerable is one which may have been traumatic for them.

    Work out whether you are suffering from PTSD

    If you are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, then it is far more likely that your child will feel a similar way. Children are quite good at picking up the signals of others, especially their parents and other family members. If you feel that an event has caused you to suffer from PTSD, then get your child seen by a doctor as well as yourself.

    Know what the symptoms are

    There are a number of symptoms which a child may exhibit if they are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, including:

    • Becoming easily upset over seemingly insignificant events
    • Crying and complaining more than usual
    • Being very clingy
    • Physical symptoms such as vomiting and even a raised temperature
    • Misbehaving
    • Bedwetting, becoming attached to a toy from their younger years and so on.

    See a doctor

    If you can get your child to a doctor as soon as possible then they will be able to diagnose the problem and the child can start to be treated. This will stop the symptoms getting any worse and help the child to deal with the issues surrounding whatever has happened to them.
