Although most people claim compensation for the physical injuries associated with a non-fault accident, Peterhead accident claim solicitors can also help you claim for the psychological trauma of an accident. If you need advice about claiming, talk to Accident Advice Helpline.
Post traumatic stress disorder
Although people can develop post-traumatic stress disorder for a number of reasons, it often occurs after a person has been involved in, or witnessed, a sudden or unexpected incident. If, for example, you were involved in a serious road traffic accident, you may start to experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder afterwards.
As any shocking or stressing event can trigger these symptoms, it isn’t always possible to determine who is most susceptible to post-traumatic disorder but there are plenty of treatments available which can help sufferers.
Whilst some people with post-traumatic stress disorder respond well to medication, others find that a mix of counselling, medication and alternative therapies helps them. Unfortunately, post-traumatic stress disorder can affect your day-to-day life so sufferers do find that it has a large impact on their lives.
If you’ve been involved in a sudden accident or incident and you’ve developed post-traumatic stress disorder as a result, Peterhead accident claim solicitors may be able to help you to make a claim for compensation.
