I see the SMPs and HR minions are adding their votes...guess which one they clicked? Well it's a democracy......
The reason the person got an injury award was because of PTSD. There is no evidence to suggest that it has gone.
How any person or organisation could stoop so low as to consider removal of the award in these circumstances, defies belief.
It is likely that life expectancy has been drastically reduced anyway. Even if not, the sheer cost of nursing the patient is certainly going to be huge, compared to their pre-accident state and the injury award will be needed even more.
The fact that a police authority could even contemplate such action, sickens me.
As a chronic severe PTSD sufferer I totally empathise with this situation.
The mind and subconscious are complex areas that we are still very much in the dark about.
Who can definitively say that even in a vegetative state the PTSD sufferer is not living through the horrors that continually torment his or her mind?
Have the people who manage such things, finally sunk so low that they have to seek out the most tragic cases? What next? The timing of pensions to an hourly rate, so that at the moment of death, they can arrange for them to immediately stop!
