PTSD is a debilitating psychological disorder that often affects service personnel and can impact on their entire life, causing them to lose quality of life. It is an anxiety disorder, typically caused by a traumatic event such as the threat of serious harm or death. Members of the armed forces are required to face such situations regularly, and therefore PTSD is a relatively common condition among current and ex-service personnel.

If you have served in the armed forces and have suffered from PTSD, claiming compensation could be an important step in your recovery, enabling you to afford treatment or equipment that can make a very positive difference.


There are various symptoms for PTSD, and some of the more common include:

  • Nightmares and persistent memories of the event
  • Insomnia and depression
  • Flashbacks, during which the event seems to be happening again and again
  • Extreme irritability
  • Loss of interest in normal activities

PTSD can have a significant impact on your quality of life, and can leave you unable to continue working. Claiming compensation for the disorder can therefore help to ease the financial burden that you would not have faced were it not for the psychological trauma experienced.
