Combat deployments can inflict many traumatic events on soldiers and the psychological damage affects them after coming home. If a veteran suffers from a combination of flashbacks and nightmares and gets angry and depressed, they may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Almost 30% of all military personnel who were deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade have been diagnosed with PTSD, and need the services of a skilled veterans disability lawyer to help them access the required benefits for their treatment.

There are many steps to hurdle in applying for PTSD disability claims. You can apply with the VA online or send a paper application in the mail. A reviewing panel will determine whether additional evidence is needed. Your doctor and other medical practitioners may provide the associated evidence as requested. Your lawyer can assist with the appeal in case the review board convenes to deny your claim petition. 

Some experts in psychology agree that PTSD is a serious illness that not only affects you, but your loved ones as well. You need all the help you can get to firmly access the disability benefits needed for PTSD treatments. It’s never too late to do something about it.
