A number of significant cases have recently brought the issues of compensation for psychiatric injury into sharper focus.;This book surveys the current state of the law, including an analysis of the ""Alcock"" case, and an examination of the ways in which a successful claim may be made. It also includes an overview of the major psychiatric conditions which may result from trauma, with particular emphasis on post- traumatic stress disorder.;The authors give practical advice on how to identify a potential psychiatric injury case, practical and procedural steps, and a survey of quantum of damages for traumatically induced injury.
