Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

The truth is, bad things don’t affect us as profoundly as we expect them to. That’s true for good things too. We adapt very quickly to either.

Psychological Injury Claims

Did you know you may have a claim for personal injuries even when you have not been physically injured?
Psychological injuries can arise after you experience an extremely stressful and traumatic situation. This can happen without you being physically injured.

The clearest example of the psychological injury is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often occurs after to shop workers after they have been involved in a robbery, particularly where they are place under extreme stress or fear for their safety. Please see the case study below.

Symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder are as follows:

  1. Sleeping difficulties
  2. Flash backs
  3. Outburst of emotion
  4. Irritability and nervousness
  5. Sweating
  6. Nausea
  7. Increase in heart rate when reminded of the situation.

These symptoms usually must persist for over a month after the actual even itself and must be certified by psychiatrist who can diagnose PTSD.

Another common cause of PTSD can be car crashes.
