How does PTSD develop?

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. It’s more than just a response to stress or fear: PTSD is a complex condition that can have a profound impact on someone’s life. At Brian Barr Solicitors, we understand the intricacies of PTSD and are here to help you navigate through them.

 

PTSD can develop after a variety of traumatic events, including but not limited to:

  • Serious accidents
  • Physical or sexual assault
  • Military combat experiences
  • Natural disasters
  • Terrorist attacks
  • Traumatic childbirth
  • Prolonged or severe emotional abuse

 

It’s important to recognize that PTSD is not a sign of weakness. It is a psychological response to extraordinarily stressful situations. The path to developing PTSD varies from person to person, as does the journey to recovery.

At Brian Barr Solicitors, we don’t just see the legal case; we see the person behind it. Understanding the nature of PTSD is the first step in your journey towards seeking justice and compensation. Our team is dedicated to providing you with the support and guidance you need during this challenging time.

Am I eligible for PTSD Compensation?

At Brian Barr Solicitors, we understand that making a claim for PTSD Compensation may seem daunting, as the legal process is complex and requires legal expertise. However, thanks to our decades of specialist experience in this field, we can help you by making your claim simple, and support you through each step.

As with any personal injury claim, the two main factors that make you eligible for compensation is proving that you have suffered because of an incident, and that the incident has taken place because of the negligence of a third party.

We can connect you with an extensive network of medical specialists who can assess the psychological injury you have suffered, and produce a medical report. This is a valuable piece of evidence, and can significantly impact the value of your PTSD Claim.

No Win No Fee PTSD Claims

The person or entity responsible for your PTSD must then be proven to owe you a duty of care. This could be an employer, a service provider, or anyone who had a reasonable duty to keep you from harm.

If both of these conditions are met, you are likely eligible to claim PTSD Compensation. Our team can guide you through the collection and documentation of evidence, and build a strong case to maximise your settlement amount.

How much is my PTSD Claim worth?

Each PTSD Claim is unique, as the circumstances in which these conditions develop are varied in manner and severity. We can assess your case in a free, no-obligation assessment, and give you an idea of how much your PTSD Claim may be worth.

Our experts calculate the value of PTSD Compensation you could receive by dividing your settlement amount into two categories: general damages and special damages.

The general damages in your PTSD Claim are designed to compensate you for the event and resulting injury themselves. The Judicial College Guidelines define the ranges of compensation for the general damages of a PTSD Compensation Claim based on severity, prognosis, and the effect that the injury has had on the claimant’s life.

In addition to this, you will receive compensation for special damages. This is a recovery of all your costs and losses, past and future. They may include:

  • Loss of earnings because of necessary time off work or reduction of work hours caused by your PTSD symptoms.
  • Medical costs, such as any expense for private medical care, specialist assessments, and counselling.
  • Costs for ongoing care, either from professionals or friends and family.
  • Costs of adaptations to your home or vehicle.

Proving these expenses will be crucial to recovering the right amount of special damages. Our team can help you keep a thorough record of any loss or expense you have incurred because of your condition, which will be fundamental to a strong case for PTSD Compensation.

How do I make a claim for PTSD Compensation?

If you have developed PTSD symptoms following a traumatic event or incident, we understand that seeking compensation feels daunting or stressful. However, having the support of legal specialists can make the difference. Our expertise in claiming PTSD Compensation allows us to guide claimants through the process with no stress, offering jargon-free, clear, and effective guidance. A typical process for a PTSD Claim will go through the following steps:

 

1.    Initial Consultation

One of our experts will speak to you to gain an understanding of your circumstances, offer preliminary advice, and outline the next steps in your process. This is a crucial step: Brian Barr Solicitors is a firm believer in putting the claimant first in any legal process, so we will always seek to fully understand what has happened and how it has affected your life.

 

2.    Evidence Collection

We will help you collect and document all relevant information, including medical assessments, witness statements, and incident reports. We can also connect claimants with medical specialists who can produce detailed medical records, thoroughly describing the effects of your PTSD on your daily life.

 

3.    Establishing Liability

Proving the duty of care a third party owed you, and the subsequent breach, is the foundation of any strong personal injury claim. We will analyse the evidence and establish who is at fault for your injury. This could be a person or entity, including employers or service providers.

 

4.    Calculating PTSD Payout Amount

Based on the general damage guidelines by the Judicial College, and any evidence of financial losses and expenses, we will calculate how much your PTSD Claim is worth. We aim for your settlement amount to reflect the pain and suffering you have had to endure, and consistently achieve high payouts for our claimants.

 

5.    Negotiations

Our team will negotiate a PTSD settlement with the other party. You may receive a counteroffer, and we will advise you on whether to continue negotiations or bring your claim to court. Most of our clients see their PTSD Claim settled out of court, which reduces the stress associated with this type of case. However, our specialists have years of experience dealing with PTSD cases in court, and can provide expert advice and support.

 

Our commitment to you doesn’t end with a successful claim. We offer continued support and can guide you to counselling services and support groups.

Frequently Asked Questions

As with most personal injury claims, PTSD Claims may be subject to a time limit. You will usually be obligated to begin legal proceedings regarding your PTSD Claim within 3 years of the original incident, or from when the psychological effects of the incident have first appeared.

Because of the particular nature of PTSD compensation claims, this time limit can be less clear than in other personal injury cases. It can be complicated to establish a precise date of the psychological injury if PTSD has occurred because of ongoing trauma – such as long-term military or emergency service. Our PTSD Solicitors can advise you on the best course of action for your claim, but beginning the claim process as soon as you are able to can make the difference.

We often see clients move their PTSD Claim from another firm to Brian Barr Solicitors. If you are currently pursuing compensation for PTSD, but not using a specialist firm, your settlement may be undervalued. We understand PTSD and the impact it has on sufferers, and we have the expertise to secure higher amounts of compensation for PTSD.

Transferring your case to us is straightforward and hassle-free. There is no obligation for you to continue your case with your current firm if you find that your payout is lower than it should be. You are entitled to switch firms at any point in the legal process if you are unhappy with your current legal representation. Contact us today to find out how to transfer your PTSD Claim to a specialist firm.
