Personal Injury

PTSD is a condition or disorder that usually happens following a traumatic event, with an immediate reaction of intense fear, helplessness, or horror. A person with PTSD persistently re-experiences the traumatic event, avoids the stimuli associated with the trauma, with numbing of general responsiveness and increasing arousal. Re-experiencing the trauma usually includes flashbacks and nightmares. A traumatised person with PTSD tries to avoid thoughts and feelings associated with the event and may have amnesia (loss of memory) for an important aspect of trauma. The person may lose interest in social life. One may have difficulty falling or staying asleep, be irritable or even have outbursts of anger, have exaggerated startle response and experience problems concentrating.

We have many years of experience in assessing and working with people with PTSD.
