Military related PTSD
Facing up to a diagnosis with PTSD can be extremely difficult and all too often mental illnesses go undiagnosed, leaving military personnel unsure where to turn. Those dealing with PTSD symptoms can suffer from acute Anxiety and stress, which in some cases leads to depression and substance abuse.
PTSD in military personnel is caused by exposure to stressful, frightening or distressing events.
PTSD can be caused by any situation which a person finds traumatic and is the most common mental illness associated with military service.
How can Nigel Askew Solicitors help?
Our solicitors have many years of experience in representing members of the Armed Forces in civil claims for compensation and can represent you in a claim against the MoD, for negligence.
To make a successful claim for compensation, our solicitors must demonstrate that you have developed PTSD as a direct result of your military service and prove that the MoD failed to diagnose you, treat your condition promptly and offer you support and treatment.
All new claims start with an initial phone consultation, during which we will ask you about your military service, when your PTSD symptoms first started and whether you have received a formal diagnosis. We will also ask you about your current symptoms and how you are feeling.
We understand that making contact with us may seem daunting but our solicitors are here to help and offer all of our clients the highest levels of care and legal advice.
Call us now on 01507 609027 to see if we can help you claim.
The MoD owes you a duty of care
The MoD owes you a duty of care to ensure you are not at risk of sustaining an injury or developing a psychological injury during your service.
If they have failed in their duty to protect you and subsequently diagnose and help treat you then they may be deemed to have breached this duty.
If you are suffering with PTSD related symptoms due to your military service then contact us today to speak to one of our expert solicitors.
Common symptoms associated with Military PTSD
There are many symptoms that are associated with PTSD and not every case is the same but can have both a mental and physical impact on your life.
The period between serving in the military and the on-set of PTSD symptoms can vary from weeks, months to even years.
Symptoms of military PTSD may include:
- Depression, panic attacks, social anxiety, paranoia and fear
- Irritability and feelings of detachment towards those closest to you
- Trouble sleeping due to severe night terrors
- Reliving memories of traumatic events, leading to sweating, headaches and nausea
- Substance misuse, most commonly with alcohol
We understand how difficult it may be living with any of these symptoms and urge you to contact us today, so that we can help you.
Call us on 01507 609027 or complete the online enquiry form on this page and one of our friendly solicitors will call you to discuss your enquiry in more detail.
How much does it cost to make a PTSD claim?
If we believe that your case has good prospects of success, we will offer to represent you on a No Win No Fee basis.
To get a claim up and running, we do not require you to pay us any up-front fees.
A No Win No Fee Agreement, also commonly referred to as a “Conditional Fee Agreement” means that it is us, the law firm that takes all the financial risk and not the client. If a claim fails, the law firm is not paid and the client does not have to pay any solicitor’s fees for their time. For taking this risk, it is common for law firms to agree with a client that they will be paid a percentage of the client’s compensation at the end of a successful claim. Law firms fees are mostly paid by the insurers of the losing party, in this case the MoD.
We will be happy to provide you with more information relating to No Win No Fee Agreements during our initial phone consultation.
