The term post-traumatic stress disorder is something we often hear associated with ex-servicemen who have seen action in war-torn areas. But did you know that this term can in fact be applied to anyone who has been involved in a traumatic incident that arose from a situation beyond their control?
Looking for an injury lawyer in Carradale?
This includes accidents, car crashes, personal assaults, falls, and even work-related incidents. If you have been considering making a compensation claim, you will need to contact an injury lawyer in Carradale who will need to know how the incident has affected you mentally, as well as physically. Or you can ask us at Accident Advice Helpline for support.
The after-effects of an accident
Anyone will suffer a degree of shock following an accident. For many it passes quite quickly, but for others an accident can leave underlying conditions that may take years to heal. If that condition affects their normal life then it is considered an after-effect of stress and would be classed as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Symptoms of PTSD include:
- Problems sleeping;
- Flashbacks to the incident;
- Tense muscles; and
- Anxiety, anger, guilt and depression.
This is a condition that makes it almost impossible for a person to live a normal life, and if the incident happened at the hands of someone else then it is only right that they receive compensation for what they are going through.
