Need a VA DBQ or a medical nexus letter to service-connect and get rated at the appropriate level in support of your VA disability claim or appeal?
In this video, Eric Cooley and VA Claims Insider discuss: How to Win Your Non Combat PTSD Claim.
In ALL PTSD non-combat situations you MUST have a buddy letter from a first-hand witness who can corroborate (aka, verify and validate) that YOU were physically present and that you witnessed the stressor event occur.
In this example, the buddy letter did neither. It did not confirm that the veteran was physically present and witnessed the stressor event occur (the hurricane).
Okay, so what evidence will the VA consider when looking at your PTSD non-combat claim to verify the stressor?
It’s NOT enough to simply confirm that the event occurred … you must confirm you were there and witnessed the event by a preponderance of the evidence (50% or greater), which in VA speak means “at least as likely as not.”
Credible supporting evidence of a PTSD stressor may be obtained from sources other than service records. When reviewing evidence to corroborate a claimed in-service stressor, claims processors must consider the credibility and probative value of the evidence to determine if the stressor is consistent with the circumstances of the Veteran’s service.
Examples of claimed stressors that must be corroborated by credible supporting evidence include, but are not limited to:
• A plane crash
• A severe weather event
• A motor vehicle accident
• Witnessing the death, injury, or threat to the physical being of another person caused by something other than hostile military or terrorist activity, and
• Actual or threatened death or serious injury, or other threat to one’s physical being, caused by something other than hostile military or terrorist activity.
