Helping You Seek Veterans Benefits For PTSD
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, approximately 8 percent of people will develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) at some point in their lives. For military veterans, the likelihood of developing PTSD is higher. Of those who served during the Vietnam War, it is estimated that about 30 percent have or have had PTSD.
At The Larrison Law Firm, we understand that PTSD can make your life very difficult. We know that it can be so disruptive that you cannot maintain regular work. We are here to help. We assist people in Loganville and throughout Georgia who are seeking veterans benefits for PTSD.
Understanding Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
PTSD is an anxiety disorder that affects some individuals who have been through extreme emotional trauma. For military veterans, combat exposure may cause PTSD. PTSD does not always show up immediately following the trauma. It can take years for symptoms to develop. Common PTSD symptoms include:
- Intrusive memories, including flashbacks and nightmares
- Self-destructive behavior, including alcohol or drug abuse
Strong Legal Advocacy For PTSD Benefits
Many people who have PTSD qualify for veterans disability benefits. However, if you were denied benefits, but believe you have PTSD that stems from your military service, we can help you appeal the decision. While we are reviewing your initial application, we will also consider other benefit programs that you may qualify for, including Social Security Disability benefits.
