Claiming compensation for PTSD
Financial compensation awarded to PTSD sufferers is intended to compensate them for the pain and suffering they have experienced as a result of another person’s criminal activity or negligent behaviour. It will also help to cover loss of earnings, bills and rehabilitation and therapy costs incurred as a direct result of the disorder.
Compensation amounts awarded for PTSD can be anything from £4,000 (for individuals who experience a full recovery within a three year period), to £45,000 (for individuals whose symptoms are severe and seemingly permanent).
Your GP is the best person to contact if you are interested in finding out more about post-traumatic stress disorder and potential treatments.
