Have you been through a traumatic ordeal in your life? Perhaps you have recently been the victim of an accident where you have been left with long-term injuries? Perhaps reliving your accident is bringing back flashbacks or you have been unable to return to your job due to your memories. If an accident is having a real impact on your life then you could be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
PTSD can have a major impact on the life of any individual – it can completely change your life and make it very difficult to do a number of tasks that you once found easy. It can also make you feel uncomfortable in certain situations or locations – directly impacting your life and often leaving you feeling upset and stressed.
One of the biggest problems with PTSD is that in general, many people don’t even know when they have it and this can make it incredibly difficult to diagnose and treat. If you do find that you are one of these people, some common symptoms that you may suffer from as a result of PTSD include:
Many people feel that when they are suffering from PTSD there is simply nowhere to turn, but this is not the case and if you do find yourself in this situation there is help out there for you. A number of professional groups and community organisations have been set up to help you deal with this problem and if you do believe you could be suffering it’s definitely worth visiting one of these organisations and seeking help.
Unfortunately at Legal Request we are not allowed to provide direct help to anyone with post-traumatic stress disorder, however we can help you claim for a number of other injuries which you might have sustained through your accident. If you have been left with injuries as a result of a major accident then you may consider a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred. To find out more about how we can help contact the Legal Request team today on 0800 990 3500.
The person I dealt with was kind and informative. Thank you for all your help.
