    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Richmondshire law firm


    A Richmondshire law firm may sometimes be commissioned by personnel of the Armed Forces in conjunction with launching a personal injury claim for compensation. Although the Armed Forces are not one for washing their dirty linen in public, it may well prove more beneficial to the injury victim to use the services of a personal injury claim that they, themselves nominate, rather than use the legal services of the Armed Forces themselves.

    The Armed Forces have a duty of care to their personnel

    Members of the Armed Forces obviously to agree to put themselves at risk when they sign up. However, the Armed Forces have a duty of care to their personnel to look after their health and safety to the best of their ability and to minimise the risk of personal injury. One of the most common injuries that Armed Forces personnel sustain (especially army personnel) is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a mental condition that can be extremely debilitating.

    The link with a Richmondshire law firm and armed forces injury claim

    The army garrison of Catterick in Richmond is the largest army training establishment here in the UK, which is why it is often a Richmondshire law firm that is linked with helping army personnel to deal with injuries such as PTSD.

    PTSD is not just related to battle experiences

    Post-traumatic stress disorder is of course something that is not only related to the stress of battle, but is something that can come about through any traumatic or stressful experience, such as a road traffic accident for example. It is quite a complicated condition to diagnose and to prove. Typical symptoms include:

    • Nightmares
    • Flashbacks
    • Insomnia
    • Sleeping disorders
    • Feelings of guilt
    • Difficulty in concentrating
    • Depression
    • Irritability and mood swings

    PTSD can sometimes take months or even years to manifest itself after a traumatic event. It usually requires psychological help to recover from, including treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy.

    Army personnel often appoint a Richmondshire law firm

    Army personnel suffering from PTSD may decide to employ the services of a Richmondshire law firm, but non-military members of the public from all over the UK who suffer from PTSD, through civil accidents or circumstances, often elect to appoint an online specialist injury claim solicitor, like ourselves here at Accident Advice Helpline.
