It is well known that compensation can be obtained for physical injuries suffered as a result of an accident. However, the psychological impact of an accident can often be overlooked. At least 25% of individuals exposed to a traumatic accident will develop at least one or more psychological illness.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating psychological disorder that can occur after experiencing an extremely distressing situation, such as the threat of serious harm to you or others following an accident.

If you have been involved in an accident in the past three years and you are now suffering from PTSD, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation either alongside or without physical injury.

Compensation for PTSD will depend upon the level of disability, whether the condition is temporary or permanent, how it impacts on your daily life and the severity of symptoms.

Treatment for this condition can include counselling, CBT and EMDR. We can ensure that you are assessed and any recommended treatment is obtained as soon as possible. If liability is accepted, this can be funded by your opponent.

Ashfords' Personal Injury Team has extensive experience with this type of personal injury claim. If you would like to discuss a personal injury claim and the funding options available to you, please contact Gemma Rowe on 01392 334017 for a free, no obligation chat.
