Compassionate Lawyers For People Living With PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder that presents itself through physical, psychological and emotional symptoms. Recognition of PTSD as a disability has increased in recent years. As such, a diagnosis of PTSD can entitle you to veterans benefits to pay for the medical and psychiatric care that you need to address the symptoms as causes of PTSD.

Common Effects Of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD comes in many forms, and has many symptoms and causes. It is especially prevalent in veterans who have suffered gunshot wounds, improvised explosive device (IED) injuries and other combat-related injuries. Some of the most common symptoms include:
- Flashbacks to traumatic events
- Feelings of detachment
- Withdrawing from family and friends
These and other symptoms of PTSD do not have to be fully debilitating for you to qualify for Veterans Compensation benefits. Your situation will be assessed and given a disability rating, which determines how much compensation you are eligible to receive. Our lawyers can help you ensure that you are given the correct rating so that your benefits payment is fairly based on your disability.
