Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD Compensation Claims
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has been with us since the dawn of time. However, it is only recently that it has been diagnosed as a serious disorder and that suffers need compassionate and professional care to help them overcome the crippling symptoms they may be experiencing through no fault of their own.
What is PTSD?
PTSD is best described as an anxiety disorder. Symptoms can include:
- Flashbacks to the event which triggered the PTSD. These re-living experiences can feel extremely real and are very frightening for the victim
- Avoiding places or people who remind you of the trigger event
- Being hyper-vigilant
- Experiencing nightmares
- Depression and withdrawal
- Bedwetting and separation anxiety in children
What Causes PTSD?
PTSD can be caused by a one-off traumatic event such as witnessing a fatal car accident or being involved in a terrorist attack. However, PTSD can also be triggered by long-term emotional, sexual or physical abuse.
