Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Claim

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD is a kind of anxiety disorder which can occur as a result of being involved in a traumatic event or accident.  Most people develop PTSD after getting involved in road traffic accidents or being victims of criminal assaults.

Recently, it has been recognised that people who work in highly stressful environments can also develop post-traumatic stress disorders.  If you believe that you may have developed this condition as a result of your work, it is important that you seek legal advice because you may be entitled to make post-traumatic stress disorder claims.

Common Symptoms

A person who has developed PTSD may experience a number of symptoms including:

  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks
  • Muscle tension
  • Difficulty sleeping

Victims may also get feelings of guilt, grief, extreme anxiety and depression.  Following the traumatic event, the symptoms may appear at any time and they can cause problems with few or all of the victim’s life including family, relationships and work.

It has been seen that there are some professions where workers at an increased risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder.  These include firemen, ambulance workers, police officers and armed force members.  Generally, any person who encounters shocking events on a regular or daily basis is at a risk of developing PTSD.
