It’s not just physical injuries you can claim compensation for if you’ve been involved in an incident that has caused you harm that came about due to the negligence or irresponsible behaviour of an individual or organisation. You might also be able to make a claim for any psychological injury you’ve suffered as a result of any such occurrence.
You might be able to make a claim if a third party has been responsible for you developing any stress, anxiety or a mood-related disorder. There will also be a chance that you might be able to make a claim for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). You might associate the condition with soldiers who have returned home from war zones with the memories of violent and horrific incidents etched on their minds, but PTSD disorder can be brought on by seemingly less harrowing incidents.
If you’ve been diagnosed with PTSD, there will be a chance that you might be able to retain the services of a top-class no win no fee* personal injury lawyer in Llandysul and sue the party that was responsible for the incident that triggered your condition for compensation.
Post-traumatic stress disorder and a personal injury lawyer in Llandysul
When you read newspaper stories about people who have successfully sought compensation for suffering from PTSD after being involved in an accident that was not their fault, you inevitably get comments below the line from members of the public who are of the opinion that it’s ridiculous to award someone a large sum of money for what to most people might seem a relatively innocuous incident. This misses the point. PTSD can be extremely debilitating and result in a person being unable to work or function properly, so it’s only right that if a third party caused the condition that they should pay.
You might be able to launch a case for compensation with the aid of a good personal injury lawyer in Llandysul for something that might seem unproblematic to some people. For instance, if you suffered from claustrophobia, being stuck in a lift or a train toilet for an hour could have a serious psychological effect on you.
