Post traumatic stress disorder compensation

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is the type of psychological injury most commonly cited in personal injury compensation claims. It is thought that PTSD will affect around 5% of men and 10% of women at some stage in their lives.

For many, PTSD will last for several months. However, in some cases it may last for years or become a permanent disorder in a person’s life.

For more information on whether you are entitled to make a claim for PTSD, call YouClaim on 0800 10 757 95.

Can you make a claim?

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.

In recent years 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. YouClaim has experience working with members of the Armed Forces, mothers who suffered traumatic births and victims of assault.

The average compensation amounts for PTSD are:

  • Full recovery within 3 years - £4,000
  • Largely recovered, some continuing minor symptoms - £10,000
  • Moderately severe, disability for the foreseeable future - £27,000
  • Severe symptoms, permanent - £45,000
