Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: When can I claim compensation for post traumatic stress disorder caused in an accident and how much is a post traumatic stress injury likely to be worth?

Post traumatic stress disorder: I was involved in a car accident head on collision which was not my fault, I suffered back injuries but also psychological injuries. I keep having flash backs and sleepless nights and I went to see my GP who has told me that I am likely suffering from post traumatic stress disorder.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

You can make a claim for post traumatic stress disorder following your road traffic accident. I recommend you consider the following process:

1. Have your post traumatic stress disorder properly verified

You have mentioned that your GP has confirmed that you are likely to be suffering from ptsd, but this does not appear to be properly definitive. I suggest that you ask your GP to refer you for a proper analysis and treatment with a psychiatrist or clinical psychologist who can tell you if in actual fact your are suffering post traumatic stress and if so how best to treat you.
