Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating psychological disorder that can sometimes occur after you have gone through an extremely distressing situation, such as the threat of serious harm or death following a serious accident.
The symptoms vary considerably and can include flashbacks, a sense of alienation, nervousness, irritability and outbursts of anger, sleeping difficulties, and powerful physical reactions when you are reminded of the situation that took place. This condition can be common in members of the armed forces and the emergency services because they often get exposed to very traumatic and life threatening situations.
The amount of compensation will depend on how the condition has affected you personally. You may have to take a lot of time off for medical appointments and to recover, or may not be able to go back to work at all. You may also have to rely on others for help with simple daily tasks and need ongoing medical care.
PTSD can severely affect your quality of life and have a very negative impact on not only your finances and earnings, but also your own future mental health.

If you have been involved in a traumatic event in the past three years, and you are now suffering from PTSD, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
The financial compensation that you may receive will be awarded to assist with the distress and pain you have suffered. It will also help to cover any loss of earnings including assistance to pay for rehabilitation and therapy costs.
