In years gone by soldiers left the battlefield with something called “shell shock”. Modern experts now agree that a similar condition exists in people who have not only been involved in the battlefield but in other traumatic incidents also. The symptoms of PTSD are considered to be :
- Problems sleeping
- Flashbacks to the incident
- Tense muscles
- Anxiety, anger, guilt and depression.
These conditions that make 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.
