If You Experienced a Traumatic Event While You Were In Military Service, You May Continue to Experience the Affects of This Event or Events During Your Everyday Life
You may be re-experiencing the traumatic event during the day or in your sleep. You may avoid situations, which can remind you of the trauma your experienced, which could be places like work, school, or a grocery store. You may have severe depression, anxiety, irritability, and have difficulty in your relationships with your friends, family, co-workers and peers.
The Department of Veteran’s Affairs uses the term Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to refer to the affects following combat or trauma experienced while in the military.
The affect of the combat and other trauma that occurred while in service can be longstanding and can present itself weeks, months, or even years after you have been discharged from military service.
At Anderson Hunter Law Firm, we are experienced in handling cases involving veterans with PTSD. We understand how the traumatic affects of war, combat and service can impact a veteran for years to come. If you are a veteran and believe you suffer from PTSD, call our office today for a free, in-person and confidential consultation with a ‘VA Accredited’ attorney to determine whether you are entitled to compensation through the VA.
If you served our country and suffer from PTSD as a result, you should know that you are entitled to some compensation. For an understanding of the amount of compensation you may be entitled to, see this link…
