A skilled veterans disability lawyer can file a PTSD claim with the VA so that you can claim disability benefits, which will help with your treatment. To fully qualify for a PTSD claim, a veteran has to meet the following requirements.
First, the veteran needs to have received a legitimate PTSD diagnosis. Second, a written statement about the traumatic event that caused the disorder. Third, the traumatic event needs to be consistent with the veteran’s service record; an example would be that the event was noted as part of a combat incident that the veteran was confirmed to be part of. Finally, there needs to be a medical opinion that the traumatic event was sufficient enough to cause PTSD from either a psychologist or psychiatrist directly employed by the VA or under contract from the VA.
