    Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)


    Are you dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)?

    People often assume that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) only occurs after certain types of events but there are actually a range of incidents that can cause someone to develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Often, being in a stressful or distressing situation can be how you develop PTSD and it can affect people in very different ways.

    The symptoms of PTSD tend to vary from person to person. For example, you may suffer from anxiety as a result of PTSD, whilst someone else’s symptoms may include flashbacks or depression.

    In general, PTSD can be extremely debilitating and it is a difficult condition to deal with. If you’re experiencing any form of PTSD, it’s essential that you seek help. There are a range of medications and therapies which can be used when treating PTSD as these are far more available than they once were.

    Should you be taking legal action?

    If you’ve developed PTSD because of an incident that wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible to claim injury compensation. If you were involved in a serious accident and this caused PTSD, for example, you could make a claim against the person who caused the initial incident.

    However, you will need to have received medical treatment before you’ll be able to make a compensation claim and most claimants will also need to take action within 3 years of the incident occurring.

    Unfortunately, the long term effects of PTSD can be far-reaching, particularly if you don’t seek medical help straight away. Some people are forced to give up work due to their symptoms, other people may find it hard to travel or even leave the house.

    If you’ve been affected in this way, claiming for PTSD may be even more important. Whilst the financial effects of PTSD are not more important than the physical and emotional effects of the condition, they can have a practical effect on your life.

    If you’re able to obtain compensation, you can ensure that you won’t suffer financially as a result of the condition. If you’d like to know how much compensation you could be able to obtain by making a claim, why not take our 30-second test today?
