Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Compensation

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Compensation

Traumatic events or constant stress can affect a person’s psychological wellbeing and sometimes lead to post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Symptoms such as flashbacks, insomnia, survivor’s guilt, panic attacks, anxiety, depression and nightmares, can impact a sufferer’s ability to work – which is why PTSD compensation is vital for many individuals.

Often associated with military incidents, PTSD is a condition also recognised in a wide range of emergency services professionals including the ambulance staff, fire brigade workers, police and nurses, who all have a greater risk of encountering trauma at work. In addition, post traumatic stress disorder can appear in the weeks or months following a shocking incident in everyday life such as a car crash, witnessing an accident, or attack.

The damage that long-term stress causes has recently been acknowledged too, and it is now known that people working in demanding environments are at risk of developing PTSD.

If you’re unable to work because of the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder, making a compensation claim for loss of earnings could help you. Treatment for PTSD can be through psychotherapy or medication, and compensation could enable you to focus on your recovery by alleviating the financial worry.

Why Make A Claim For PTSD Compensation

Life often presents challenges which thankfully most of the time we can overcome, but occasionally people experience something so traumatic that their psychology is damaged in the long-term.

Whether you’re a solider suffering due to your experiences on the battlefield, a police officer scarred by what you’ve seen in the line of duty, or an office worker psychologically damaged by years of bullying in the workplace, you may be entitled to PTSD compensation.

Post traumatic stress disorder is a serious condition and our personal injury lawyers have the ability to support you both in terms of the legal process of making PTSD claims and in the provision of a sympathetic and straightforward approach throughout. We will advise you at every stage of the claims process and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve together with access to the necessary medical care and services.
