    Injury Solicitors in Handforth


    The Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Injury Solicitors Handforth Residents turn to for Help

    When we act as the injury solicitors Handforth residents often use, Accident Advice Helpline is sometimes asked to assist with claims for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). People often suffer from PTSD as the consequence of a harrowing experience.

    It can sometimes take several years after the event itself to materialise. Here at  Accident Advice Helpline we can assist you to obtain financial compensation, regardless of whether or not you have suffered any physical injury.

    The Complexities of a PTSD Claim

    The process of filing a successful PTSD injury claim is quite a complex one, and you will require an exhaustive psychological medical report detailing the symptoms and the effects they have. Typical symptoms include:

    • Reliving the experience
    • Breaking out into cold sweats
    • Interrupted sleep
    • Difficulties with concentration
    • Feelings of isolation
    • Feelings of guilt
    • Headaches, chest and stomach pains
    • Drug or alcohol dependence

    Typical PTSD will probably involve several of the above listed symptoms being experienced during the same period of time.

    The PTSD Injury Solicitors Handforth Residents use say you must be a Primary Victim

    In order to present a viable PTSD injury claim, as the PTSD injury solicitors Handforth residents often appoints, we can advise you that you will need to be considered as what is described as a “primary victim.”

    This means that you will be someone who was involved directly with the accident, even if you were not physically harmed. So, for example, someone who merely witnessed the accident would not normally be considered to be an appropriate PTSD victim as far as claiming compensation is concerned.

    Typical Range of Damage Awards

    Depending on the severity of the PTSD, as defined by an official psychiatric, financial compensation varies anywhere from £2150 for minor symptoms, to as much as £55,000 for more severe symptoms.

    The HOW MUCH calculator on our website may be used to give you a valuation, (it takes only 30 seconds) but this will have to be subject to confirmation once the psychiatric analysis has been professionally evaluated.
