What are the Causes and Symptoms of PTSD?
It takes an incredibly substantial chain of events to trigger PTSD in a Veteran, starting with heredity, biology, and an exposure to trauma either in a single episode, or taken together starting in childhood and moving outward. A person does not have to directly go to war to obtain PTSD, because everyone who comes back from combat does not.
Symptoms of PTSD include, but are not likely limited to the following:
• Intrusive memories: Distressing and recurrent dreams that occur while awake, most typically with severe emotional or physical reactions.
• Flashbacks: Reliving the events of a past occurrence.
• Avoidance: Typically refers to avoiding people, places and events that can potentially trigger memories, or refusing to talk about any prior traumatic events.
• Depression: Poor feelings, or a general sense of emotional numbness, which is coupled with a lack of interest in themselves or others, hopelessness in terms of the future, and potentially suicidal thoughts.
• Memory problems: General holes in the memory relating to a traumatic event can be either short or long term.
• Loss of emotional control: Highs and lows emotionally, self-sabotage, and general physical anxiety symptoms.
The Effects of Late On-Set PTSD in Elderly Veterans
Post-traumatic stress disorder is a widely recognized medical condition in the United States. Veterans of the war in Iraq, and Afghanistan, should have a clear path to getting an exact diagnosis and treatment, however, due to the perils involved with the VA, that often takes an uphill battle from an accredited attorney.
Many older Veterans, who are now in the later years of their life, find that idle time is causing them to struggle with memory loss.
Unfortunately, some may head towards drugs or drinking as a coping method.
The attorneys at our Veterans Benefits Law Firm are honored to help any Veteran, especially if they are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost To Hire You?
It does not cost you anything to hire our Veterans Benefits Law Firm as your attorneys. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win you an award. Our firm charges 20%, which is deducted by the VA from your lump sum payment for retroactive benefits.
How Long Will It Take To Appeal My Benefits Denial?
While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.
How Do I Increase My Disability Rating?
Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s fairly simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.
