Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD, is a condition that is finally being recognized in the public eye as a serious and debilitating disability. Referred to after World War 2 as ‘Shell Shock,’ PTSD is a mental health condition that usually occurs as a result of experiencing a traumatic event. The event causing PTSD can be something that was shocking, disturbing, distressing, or any other highly charged emotional experience. Due to the nature of military conflict, many service members have PTSD from their experiences in foreign theatres and suffer from this disability without even realizing they have it.

The military culture can make it difficult for a veteran to admit they have PTSD. The truth is; usually, more than ten percent of veterans suffer from mild to severe PTSD. If you are suffering from PTSD, chances are other veterans you served with are too. Both you and they are entitled to disability payments. By speaking with an expert VA Disability Lawyer at Stone Rose Law, you can be sure you’ll get the maximum benefit available to you.
Symptoms of PTSD include, but are not limited to:
To qualify for VA Disability Benefits for PTSD, a veteran will need an official diagnosis of PTSD from a medical professional. Just because you don’t have a diagnosis yet doesn’t mean you can’t talk to the expert VA Disability Attorneys at Stone Rose Law – they can help you begin your case and refer you to medical professionals who can assist you in being diagnosed. Once you have a diagnosis, all that is required is that there be a service connection to the PTSD – either an event, injury, or illness that caused the PTSD. Most likely, your medical professional will be the one to tie that event to your PTSD. Once that happens, the expert veterans’ lawyers at Stone Rose Law can help finish your claim and get you the payments you deserve.
