Major X -v- MOD
The Claimant, a former high-flying Major in the Army developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (“PTSD”) following experiences in the First Gulf War and subsequently in Kosovo. The claim was based on a failure by Army psychiatrists to diagnose and treat the PTSD. The claim settled at a Joint Settlement Meeting for £1.5 million which was the MOD’s highest individual payout for 2013/2014. David Barr acted for the Ministry of Defence.
