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.
