Do you suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to a traumatic event that occurred during your time in the service? If you do, you may have a VA claim. A veterans attorney explains in this video more about these types of claims and how to prove your claim for PTSD.

In order to receive claim benefits for post traumatic stress disorder, a veteran must have a diagnosis from a doctor.  VA requirements surrounding claims for PTSD have changed since 2010. While veterans no longer have to prove through a specific document what happened to them in service, they do have to be diagnosed by a VA doctor. If a VA doctor is unwilling to diagnose PTSD but a doctor outside of VA has diagnosed the disease, veterans must then prove that they were exposed to a traumatic event though a document or witness statement.

For help proving your claim for PTSD so that you can receive VA benefits, please call veterans benefits lawyer Sean Kendall at (877) 699-1712 or (303) 449-4773 or contact us online at
