Adamou, Marios and Hale, Anthony S. (2003) PTSD and the law of psychiatric injury in England and Wales: finally coming closer? Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law, 31 (3). pp. 327-332. ISSN 1093-6793

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.
