Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Claims

More about PTSD claims


More about PTSD claims

PTSD is a specific illness and in order to make a successful PTSD disability claim it is essential to first obtain a confirmed diagnosis. After talking and listening to you, the first thing any PTSD lawyer at Access Legal will do is arrange for an independent medical consultant (usually a psychiatrist) to examine you.

That expert's report will describe the severity of your symptoms and how long they might last. This will allow us to determine what immediate help and support you require and properly value your claim to take account of any future needs. Post traumatic stress disorder symptoms can include extreme anxiety, flashbacks and emotional detachment. Feelings of depression and hopelessness are common and in the most severe cases, victims may have suicidal thoughts.

PTSD is usually associated with military or emergency service personnel. They appear to be coping whilst on duty but very often problems manifest themselves much later, when the immediate danger seems to have gone. However, PTSD can affect anyone at any age and whatever the cause, if your health and quality of life has been damaged, you may be entitled to make a claim.

Most personal injury claims have a three year time limit from the date of the original accident. However, there are exceptions and claims for post traumatic stress disorder may be one of them. Our team at Access Legal can advise you, usually on a No-Win-No-Fee basis, about all the options open to you.
