Compensation for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Since the 1980s doctors have recognised that being involved in a traumatic event can lead to mental harm as well as, or in conjunction with, physical harm. The recognised medical term for this is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. In every personal injury claim there is someone to blame for the harm caused. Just as someone else’s negligence leading to your broken limb or brain damage can lead to compensation, your Post Traumatic Stress may equally lead to thousands of pounds in financial compensation.  At Manners Pimblett we are experts at claiming compensation for Post Traumatic Stress suffered by our clients.

What is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

PTSD is a recognised medical condition that can only be diagnosed by a medical professional. Every individual will suffer different symptoms ranging in severity. Experts have however pinpointed the following symptoms as commonly indicating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder:

  • Recurrent, repeated, disturbing recollections of the traumatic event , such as flashbacks that feel as if the event is happening again;
  • Avoidance of any associated activity, places, thoughts or feelings, for example, being unable to drive after a car crash;
  • Increased anxiety and emotion which can lead to trouble falling asleep, increased nervousness, depression, or thoughts of suicide.

These symptoms may appear immediately after the traumatic event, or up to years afterwards. The most important thing to do if you are suffering from any symptoms out of the ordinary is to go to your doctor. He or she will be able to diagnose whether you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Remember that you do not need to suffer in silence. Financial compensation may be vital in order to help you move forward with your life, or help with those important bills. Our understanding and professional experts at Manners Pimblett are ready and prepared to get you the maximum amount of compensation for your claim.
