Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can occur as a consequence of a trauma. It can develop in people who are either involved in or witness a traumatic events up to a year after the incident. Symptoms must persist for a month or more for PTSD to be considered for diagnoses.

Mental disturbances following any kind of accident are not uncommon, and should not be ignored. Even mild panic or hesitancy whilst driving following a road traffic accident may be considered a consequence of the original incident.

Symptoms of PTSD may include:

  • Flashbacks
  • Nervousness/painful emotions
  • Intrusion (mentally revisiting the event)
  • Numbness (loss of mental feeling)
  • Anxiety
  • Guilt

  • Use of alcohol/drugs to avoid traumatic symptoms
  • Unstable emotions (anger, irritability, concentration / mental performance issues)
  • Sleep disruption

Treatment is usually a combination of psychological therapy and medication. Whilst symptoms of PTSD can last for many months, even years, various therapies are available, including cognitive and exposure therapy, to manage behavioral symptoms.

Victims of PTSD can expect to receive between £2,800 and £71,850 in compensation, depending on the severity of the condition.
