Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

What is PTSD?

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is a psychiatric disorder in people who have experienced a traumatic event such as a serious accident, war or combat, a terrorist attack, sexual violence, or a natural disaster. It is a condition that can affect anyone at any age.   People with PTSD have intense and disturbing feelings about their experience that can last for years after the traumatic events have ended.

At Robertsons Solicitors, our personal injury solicitors can help you with PTSD compensation because sometimes, an outside party can be held responsible.  As the psychological effects of PTSD can be just as profound as physical injuries, it is only fair that you are entitled to a PTSD compensation payout.  

Get in touch with the personal injury solicitors at Robertsons so that we can assess your claim for free.   We handle all cases of PTSD, but our specialty is PTSD in the military or armed forces.  

What are the symptoms of Post traumatic Stress Disorder?

There are various symptoms and these can be grouped into four categories:

  • Re-experiencing Symptoms
  • Avoidance Symptoms
  • Alertness and Reactivity Symptoms
  • Feeling and Mood Symptoms

You will therefore see that the symptoms can range from flashbacks of the event(s) in question to using alcohol and drugs to avoid memories. Everyone is different with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, so no two people necessarily have the same symptoms. Ensuring that you receive help and advice is imperative in these situations. There are a number of charities that can assist including PTSD UK.

Why should you choose Robertsons Solicitors?

We are committed to getting the best possible outcomes for our clients with PTSD so that they can get the compensation and support they need.   We believe in a personalized service where you guide the speed of the process and agree to the approach every step of the way.


You must claim within three years of the incident happening. In some cases, the limitation can be extended. However, we will advise you to contact us as soon as possible after a PTSD injury, as claims can be complex and notoriously difficult to prove. Therefore, it is better to act sooner rather than later.

Each situation differs, and the amount payable to you depends on your situation and your injury.   Contact our specialist team of personal injury solicitors to get a general idea of what you can be entitled to.

At Robertsons Solicitors, we will make every effort to settle before a PTSD case reaches the court.

In the rare event of your case making it to court, you will only be expected to attend the final hearing.  Our personal injury solicitors will keep you posted about the whole process and what happens in court.
