Injury solicitors may sometimes be sought by members of the armed services who wish to make a claim for compensation following a work related injury or illness.
Helston is famous for being the home to RNAS Culdrose, the Royal Naval Air Station on the Lizard Peninsular in Cornwall, which is the largest helicopter base in Europe. Its other claim to fame is that it is where HRH Price Andrew (The Duke of York) underwent his training as a Navy helicopter pilot.
Members of the Armed Forces sometimes acquire PTSD
A career in the Armed Forces, be it the Royal Navy, the Royal Air force, or the Army, is sometimes associated with putting personnel in stressful situations. Although the Forces do their best to protect their personnel, physical injuries can often be sustained, as can psychological injuries such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) too.
Seeking injury solicitors in Helston for PTSD acquired in civilian life
Of course PTSD is not just the domain of the armed forces. It can also have its roots in civilian life as well. Witnessing a horrific road traffic accident, or seeing someone badly injured at work can also result in PTSD, and injury solicitors in Helston, or anywhere else in the country for that matter, might be sought in order to put a claim in for compensation.
The burden of proof with a PTSD injury/illness
Claiming compensation for PTSD via injury solicitors, or other areas of the UK, could entitle you to be awarded compensation anywhere from £2,600 to £66,000 depending on the severity of the condition, and how it affects your life. In many instances PTSD can prove to be severely debilitating. Symptoms can include:
- Suffering bouts of irritability
- Having difficulty getting to sleep (insomnia)
- Experiencing anger management problems
- Suffering from bouts of anxiety and depression
- Experiencing feelings of isolation
- Undergoing so-called night terrors and flashbacks
- Having difficulty communicating with others
Whatever your symptoms, in order to stand a good chance of being able to claim compensation, you will need a proper medical diagnosis from an authoritative source such as an experienced doctor or psychiatrist.
