Abstract

With the increase in terrorism in several parts of the world, more people are exposed to traumatic events that could cause psychiatric injury either to them or to members of their families. In Britain, terrorist attacks or other catastrophes are not unknown; indeed, the case law relating to psychiatric injury is vast. However, the intersection between medicine and the law is minimal. The result is a law that lags behind the scientific evidence and, on occasion, may seem unfair.
