Veteran Receives Disability Benefits for PTSD

Our attorneys are very honored to have the opportunity to represent veterans in their claims for veterans benefits.  In select cases, our attorneys will represent veterans on initial applications for disability benefits at no charge.  Recently, Travis Studdard filed an initial application for benefits on behalf of a veteran who developed PTSD as a result of his military service.  That veteran recently received an award determining that he did suffer from service connected PTSD and granting a 50 percent disability rating.

Part of our work on this claim included locating military records that corroborated our client’s account of two deaths he witnessed during his service aboard a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier. Because these events had occurred over 20 years ago, the client was unable to recall the names of those killed or the dates of these events as required by the VA before they will perform a search of military records.  However, based on the veteran’s detailed description of the events he witnessed, Perkins Studdard was able to perform its own research and determine to the day when these in-service stressors occurred.  We supplemented the application with that information, including official military reports of the incidents, and service-connection was granted.  We were very happy to be able to assist this veteran in obtaining service connection for his PTSD.

In addition to handling initial applications for benefits and claims for increased ratings, our attorneys also handle appeals.  These appeals usually result from the denial of an application for benefits or a grant of benefits where the disability rating is too low.  If you have questions about your application for VA benefits or wish to file an application, our attorneys will be happy to talk to you.  To schedule a free consultation with one of our attorneys, simply call the phone number on the right of this page or complete the “Need Help” form.

I highly recommend Travis Studdard to represent anyone looking to help with VA claims. The VA is very difficult to deal with when attempting to get benefits from service connected injuries, at least that's my experience. Travis and his team knows the VA system and the legal procedures to help you get what you deserve. Travis was kind and passionate with me throughout this process and therefore, I highly recommend this law firm to represent DAV's.Terry Hembree
