Veteran Disability Benefits
For our veterans who have served the United States of America in the armed forces, a law has been passed by Congress that provides both disability and medical benefits. Unfortunately, it is often difficult for veterans to obtain benefits from this law and claims are frequently denied.
The Berke Law Firm P.A. provides legal representation to veterans and their families for federal veteran disability benefits. As the government rejects or denies thousands of veteran’s disability benefits each year, it is imperative that you seek qualified legal counsel when submitting your claim.
While serving our country you may have been exposed to war zones or hazardous conditions that are only now affecting your health. These veteran’s disability benefits were developed to help you through these difficult physical and mental health issues.
Some of these health issues can include:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome
- Exposure to Toxic Chemicals
- Gulf War Syndrome
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Orthopedic problems
- Heart Disease
- Immunity Issues
- Server Burns
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- And various other illnesses and conditions
Determining Eligibility for Benefits
If you were injured, developed a condition, or contracted an illness during your service you may be eligible for veteran’s benefits. Depending on your condition, you will need to be assessed by a physician through the U.S. military’s healthcare system or by referral. Upon consulting with a physician you will be given what is known as an impairment rating. This is a scale used to determine how your injury or condition affects your life. The higher the rating, the more your condition or injury is considered “disabling.”
If you are eligible for veteran’s benefits we urge you to seek the help of an experienced, qualified attorney. The Berke Law Firm P.A. will work with you to submit your veteran’s disability claim and obtain the compensation that you deserve. We work hard to develop and present strong cases that show the Department of Veterans Affairs how much you need compensation for your lost wages.
