Will I have to go to court for a PTSD compensation claim?
The vast majority of PTSD claims are settled out of court. In fact, you might not even have to come to a lawyer's office if you don't want to. That's because while we have offices conveniently located all over the country, you are more than welcome to start your claim by telephone or post if you prefer.
Will I need a medical for my PTSD compensation claim?
Yes, you will. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric condition that affects people in many different ways. In mild cases, you may get over the symptoms in a few weeks or months. In more serious cases, you may suffer the effects of PTSD for the rest of your life. That's why it's essential to have an independent medical report to help establish the cause of your PTSD, as well as how long an expert thinks it may take for you to recover. This report is an essential part of the evidence we will use to calculate the value of your claim, and pursue the compensation you deserve.
What sort of things can I claim compensation for?
If you are suffering from PTSD through no fault of your own, it can make life very difficult, and in some cases can even stop you from being able to work. That's why the things you might be able to claim for include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income
- Loss of future income
- Therapeutic treatment
So if your life is being affected by PTSD, and it was caused by a traumatic event or stressful situation in the last three years, it's important to consider all of these things, to make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
What causes PTSD that leads to compensation?
Most people associate PTSD with military service, and it's true that many veterans suffer from this condition as a result of events they witnessed or the constant stress of military operations. Unfortunately, many other people can suffer from PTSD, caused by a wide variety of situations that were beyond their control, including:
- Military personnel
- Emergency service workers
- Victims of violent crime
- Victims of domestic abuse
- Witnesses to road accidents
- Witnesses to terrorist acts
If you have suffered constant stress or a terrible trauma that you believe caused PTSD, you may suffer from any or even all of these symptoms:
- Recurring nightmares
- Flashbacks to traumatic events
- Trembling, nausea and dizziness
- Lack of concentration
- Memory problems
If you have any of these symptoms, you could be suffering from PTSD. If so, talk to one of our friendly advisors about the possibility of claiming the compensation you deserve today.
Who's to blame for my PTSD?
In the vast majority of cases, people develop PTSD due to the stresses, strains or traumas they have experienced in the workplace. So if you are ex military, for example you might have a claim against the MOD. Having said that, where your stress or trauma was caused by anything from witnessing a fatal road accident to being assaulted by a spouse or other person, someone else is at fault. So whoever or whatever you think caused your PTSD symptoms, talking to us can help you to find out if you might have a claim, and if so, who that claim should be made against.
