Helping with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Veterans
Suffering from shock after a traumatic event is a normal reaction. When that stress doesn’t subside over time, then a person might be experiencing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Veterans experience PTSD in higher numbers than the regular population due to their experiences while in service.
If you are having flashbacks, avoiding situations or people you believe will trigger negative feelings or thoughts, or suffering from other PTSD symptoms, you should reach out for the benefits our country has created to help you.
If you need assistance filing a claim for your Veterans’ Benefits contact us. We’re happy to help regardless of where you are in the claims process. If your claim has been denied, then we will assist you through the processes of disputing that denial and ensure you get the benefits you deserve.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Issues Veterans may Experience
Symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
The biggest difference between a normal stress reaction to a traumatic event and PTSD is that the symptoms do not lessen over time. Sometimes these symptoms actually increase in their severity over time.
Some of the symptoms veterans with PTSD experience include:
- Situational Avoidance
- Memory Issues
- Neurological Problems
- Negative Thoughts and Feelings
If you find yourself reliving a situation or event over and over, then you might be suffering from PTSD.
If you’re having vivid nightmares where you can see, hear, smell, and feel the specific details of a traumatic event, then you might be experiencing PTSD.
If you have been avoiding certain situations, friends you served with, crowds, or other experiences that may trigger a flashback or relapse, then you are probably experiencing PTSD.
Denied PSTD Benefits from the VA?
Did the VA deny you the benefits you are entitled to for assistance dealing with your Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder? If so you must file your appeal as quickly as possible. There is a limited time to submit the required evidence and the VA is strict timelines and requirements they adhere to.
Are you one of the thousands of Veteran Claims that have been denied by the VA? Have you received a decision that is lower than you expected? As a Veteran who has served your country, YOU should receive Disability Benefits.
If you were injured and haven’t received the VA benefits you deserve, please call Chad Barr Law today at (407) 599-9036 and discuss your case with an experienced Orlando Veterans Benefits Attorney, or fill out our contact form to schedule a consultation.
