Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

When involved in a serious accident or otherwise traumatic event, many people suffer from long-lasting psychological side-effects, known as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. In order to be diagnosed with PTSD, symptoms must last for more than a month and they must inhibit the victim’s social and/or occupational life.

If you have been diagnosed with PTSD, or are suffering from the symptoms of PTSD, because you were involved in an accident that was not your fault, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your suffering.
