Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Claims

In recent years, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) has become a much more widely recognised condition and is now better understood as a serious psychological issue which can affect anyone who has witnessed or been involved in a traumatic event. For many, it will last for several months, while for others it may last longer or become a permanent disorder.

If you have suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after a serious accident caused by another party then you have the right to take legal action against those responsible for your psychological pain.

  • Members of the armed forces
  • Mothers who have suffered from a traumatic birth
  • Victims of domestic violence
