Finding A Lawyer For Your Veterans Disability PTSD Claims
Unfortunately, too many of our veterans return from their time in the military to face the ongoing issues of PTSD, or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD can happen to people in all walks of life, but it is particularly common in service men and women returning from the incredible stresses of combat. In the military, PTSD most commonly occurs after a very traumatic event, such as fear of hostile attack, the injury or death of a fellow service member or innocent civilians, or sometimes in cases of sexual assault.
All vets that are treated at a VA medical center are screened for potential symptoms of PTSD. If you have been positively screened at a VA facility or think you may be suffering the effects of PTSD, contact my office for an honest evaluation of your VA appeal.

About PTSD, Signs and Symptoms
PTSD is a relatively new term, but the disorder itself has been with us as long as there have been wars. Out of a lack of greater understanding, medical professionals in previous generations may have referred to PTSD victims as “shell shocked” or “battle weary”. PTSD is serious. Strong emotions caused by the traumatic event create changes in the brain, and while symptoms may come on rapidly, they don’t always necessarily diminish. In fact, they may go on for decades if untreated, making daily life difficult.
Here are some of the signs that you may be suffering from PTSD:
- Reliving a traumatic event (“flashbacks”)
- Avoiding situations that remind you of the event
- Feeling numb or withdrawn
- Feeling on edge, jittery, or constantly on guard
- Alcohol or drug problems
- Trouble holding a job
- Relationship problems
- Feelings of hopelessness, shame or despair
- Physical symptoms
I’m Here To Help – And To Fight For You
With ongoing military conflicts over the last 15 years, PTSD claims have increased dramatically. The VA pays disability benefits to veterans who have been diagnosed with PTSD. However, the claims process can take a long time – years in some cases. You need a tough attorney who will help you slash through the Veterans Disability bureaucracy.
If you have been diagnosed with PTSD, or suffer from symptoms of PTSD, don’t wait. Call me today, and I’ll get you the benefits you deserve!
