Physical injuries like vision or hearing impairment are what some soldiers sustain while in combat zones. However, there are some injuries that go beyond the surface, like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), characterized by depression, detachment, numbness, and others.
Fortunately, an experienced veterans disability attorney can help these vets file a PTSD claim so they can receive the appropriate benefits. Applying for a PTSD claim can be done online by downloading the necessary VA Form 21-526 off the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website. Following the submission of the said form, veterans will be asked to see a psychiatrist at their local Veterans Affairs office for diagnosis.
