PTSD relating to soldiers and war zones
PTSD is a debilitating condition that can often take several months (or even several years) to manifest itself. The condition was first brought to the attention of the general public by ex-soldiers who had picked up the condition following a traumatic experience in a war zone. In most instances, it relates to an experience the PTSD sufferers themselves underwent, but in certain circumstances it can also relate to an experience that someone else close to the PTSD sufferer experienced.
Finding a personal injury lawyer in Northallerton for PTSD personal injury claims
PTSD doesn’t just relate to soldiers and war zone experiences, however; it can relate to people in other stressful occupations such as firefighters, and even to an ordinary member of the general public who witnesses a terrible accident or trauma to somebody else. If you believe that you are suffering from PTSD, the blame for which lies with a third party, then a personal injury lawyer in Northallerton at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you to launch a claim for personal injury compensation.
PTSD can affect children, too
PTSD has been known to affect children as well as adults, in which case it often results in bedwetting. The types of scenarios that can give rise to PTSD include:
- Being present during dangerous events or traumas;
- Actually being physically injured;
- Witnessing other people being injured or killed;
- Being exposed to feelings of terror or helplessness;
- Not having any support after a traumatic experience;
- Having to deal with additional stress after a traumatic event; and
- Mental illness in the family.
The importance of getting medical help and/or counselling
The most important thing with something like PTSD is getting expert medical help at the earliest opportunity. Psychiatric help or counselling can help you to deal with the condition, but in any event you will require medical proof of the condition in order to be able to launch a claim for compensation.
