    AAH – The specialist no win no fee* Elie PTSD injury claim lawyer

    Injuries are not only physical, they can be psychological too, something that AAH, one of the leading no win no fee* Elie injury claim lawyers, fully understands. It may be that the psychological injury is associated with a physical injury too. But on the other hand, someone can suffer a psychological injury without sustaining a physical injury, and still be eligible to claim compensation,

    Harrowing experiences can cause psychological trauma

    You can suffer a psychological injury just by witnessing an accident, and perhaps witnessing the trauma that the poor accident victim undergoes. Such things can prove mentally scarring. As another example, you could be trapped in an upstairs room in a B&B guesthouse, with a fire raging down below and need rescuing by the fire services in order to save your life. It’s something that could haunt your life forever.

    Contact AAH to discuss your no win no fee* Elie PTSD injury claim

    As with any other injury that you claim compensation for, you must first be able to prove that the blame for the accident/incident that causes the injury, lies with a third party. That is often not the problem. The problem with psychological injury is usually obtaining the necessary medical proof of the nature and severity of the injury itself. This type of injury comes under the heading of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and is not uncommon.

    Here at AAH, the specialist no win no fee* Elie injury lawyer, we have handled many such claims successfully, and if you are suffering from PTSD we recommend you pick up the phone and talk to one of our experienced advisers on our toll-free helpline, the contact details of which can be seen below.

    The 3 year statute of limitations

    Post-traumatic stress disorder normally starts within one month of the incident it relates to. In some cases however it is delayed for a number of months, and in rare cases, even years. In most personal injury claim cases, you should be aware that there is a 3 year statute of limitations, outside of which it is not normally possible to launch a claim, unless you can show just cause as to why the claim is so delayed.
