Psychiatric Disabilities

Veterans seeking service connection for psychiatric disorders or increased ratings for these disorders are perhaps the most disadvantaged claimants in the VA system. These veterans must contend with the VA’s maze-like bureaucracy and with their own emotional impairments. Added to these difficulties is the problem of proving psychiatric disabilities. While most physical disabilities can be easily diagnosed and evaluated, psychiatric disabilities are often difficult to diagnose, and even more difficult to evaluate. For theses reasons, so much depends upon the credibility of the veteran, and, above all, the credibility of the evaluating psychiatrist. More often than not, psychiatric claims are won on the thoroughness and persuasiveness of medical examination reports. The VLG understands the importance of medical examination reports, and carefully seeks out psychiatrists who will provide the best reports for its clients.
