PTSD- VA Disability Compensation 

After witnessing or experiencing a traumatic or life-threatening event such as war, a natural disaster, a car accident, or sexual assault, people commonly have reactions such as upsetting memories of the event, intrusive thoughts, or trouble sleeping.

If these symptoms do not go away, or if they get worse, you may be experiencing posttraumatic stress disorder, better known as PTSD. What is important for Veterans to know is that VA provides healthcare and disability compensation for Veterans with PTSD.

If you received an unfavorable rating decision from VA, Bergmann & Moore could help.

    PTSD VA Claims

    PTSD is a Serious Issue

    Serious symptoms of PTSD include re-experiencing the traumatic event or flashbacks, difficulty sleeping, hyper-vigilance, irritability, and isolation from friends and family. PTSD may manifest in the form of other mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression years or decades later.

    PTSD is often prevalent in Veterans who were in combat or deployed to a war zone during their military service. For example, VA estimated that about 30 percent of Vietnam War Veterans have had PTSD in their lifetime.

    PTSD Treatment Information

    As a result of their serious symptoms, many Veterans with PTSD experience difficulty functioning in an occupational environment. PTSD often impacts job performance or the ability to work. VA offers treatment at Vet Centers and VA Medical Centers. Treatment at a Vet Center is free, and service connection (VA disability compensation) is not required.
