Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often have difficulties obtaining service connection for their mental health condition. Also, Veterans that have already obtained service connection for PTSD often have difficulties obtaining the rating they deserve for their condition. VA often makes mistakes when processing PTSD claims. An experienced advocate can help present your case to VA in a way that maximizes your chances of obtaining the best possible result.
Developing Successful PTSD Claims Depends Upon Presenting Strong Medical Evidence
When it comes to developing the evidence necessary to obtain the best possible rating for a PTSD claim, some of the best evidence can be obtained from a doctor or therapist that treats your condition. Regular treatment records from a licensed mental health professional will help win your claim, but, more importantly, the treatment may help you find some relief from your symptoms. If you believe you may be affected by PTSD, or some other mental health condition, please contact a mental health professional and begin treatment immediately.

A Skilled Advocate Can Remove Some of the Stress From Filing PTSD Claims
Many Veterans do not talk about their traumatic experiences, and it can be difficult to describe these stressful experiences during the claims process. Traumatic experiences are difficult to remember, and it can be difficult to remember the necessary details at the right times. A skilled advocate will help you tell your story, and will make sure you never face a VA examiner or rater unprepared.
