How can I connect my PTSD to my military service for veterans' disability compensation?

If you have developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and it is related to your military service, you might qualify for veterans’ disability compensation. To qualify you may be required to demonstrate that an event threatened to cause serious injury or even death and led to severe stress. If you actually suffered an injury, you may also qualify. Contact a North Carolina veterans’ disability attorney at our Dunn or Fayetteville offices to discuss your case. 

The second thing you will need to establish is that you have been diagnosed with PTSD. Medical records must not only prove your diagnosis but explain how severe the impairment is. 

Arguing your case will require confirmation from an approved psychologist or psychiatrist who works with veterans. It must be shown that the stressor was enough to cause PTSD. 

PTSD is a serious mental condition that has been experienced amongst many veterans, particularly those who have served in wars or gone through numerous deployments. Because service-related injuries and diseases qualify for benefits, you could receive compensation for your condition. 

The best way to learn if you may qualify is to consult with an attorney who has experience handling veterans’ disability claims. An attorney can also help collect evidence you will need to prove your disability.
