A follow-up study of accident neurosis.

Abstract

Thirty five claimants with accident neurosis, in which there were gross perplexing somatic symptoms without demonstrable organic pathology were traced and followed-up in their homes, from one to seven years after compensation was received. Few claimants recovered and such recovery as did take place was unrelated to the time of compensation. Family processes leading to over-protection by relatives were examined and appeared to be vitally important in the prolongation of symptoms. The legal process and the delays involved caused great distress.
