Veterans know what it’s like to risk your own safety to serve your country, often thousands of miles from home. If you saw combat, you went through hell before you returned to your loved ones.
Your injuries could be physical—and invisible. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects hundreds of thousands of military veterans. You feel lonely, but you’re not alone.
If your PTSD prevents you from holding a job and providing for your family, veterans’ disability benefits are crucial. They’re protection for people who served their country willingly and now need a little help to live secure lives.
Sometimes, sadly, getting that help isn’t as easy as it should be.
If you’re struggling to get disability benefits with PTSD, give the experienced disability lawyers at the Lachman & Gorton Law Office a call today. We help to our neighbors in Elmira, Rochester, Binghamton and all over Central New York and Upstate New York.
To win benefits, you have to show:
Some doctors may be unaware of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) definition of disability. Sometimes a denial of benefits comes down to a clerical error on your Disability Benefits Questionnaire (DBQ).
Our lawyers can gather the right documents, or even help you find doctors experienced with the VA system.
With PTSD, you need your medical records to show symptoms like these:
Don’t go through this alone. Our attorneys know the system and know how to give you the best shot at winning the benefits you need.
We’ll even evaluate your situation at no cost to you.
You’d never change your decision to serve. You’re proud of it. You should be. But you wish life after service was easier.
At Lachman & Gorton, we can help you:
You’re probably already aware of the confusing “VA math” used to rate the seriousness of your disability. It’s easy to feel lost in this big, complex government system that puts a rating on you—whether you agree with it or not—and sends you on your way.
At Lachman & Gorton, we can filter through the confusing paperwork and regulations and make sure you have the best shot of getting the rating, and in turn the benefits, you need.
Most importantly, we know you’re going through a hard time if you’re at our door. We want to help.
