Veterans Disability: Our Areas of Practice
If you have been injured while on active military duty, and your injuries prevent you from working either partially or completely, you may be entitled to veterans compensation.
Denied Veterans Disability
We understand the frustration and worry that you may be experiencing when you are disabled, unable to work, yet your veterans disability has been denied. We may be able to help.
Many ask what the difference is between a veteran pension and veteran disability. There are differences. You cannot collect both, even though there are different eligibility requirements for each.
A back injury can cause extreme discomfort, serious pain and an inability to work. Many people suffer from back pain and our military personnel are no different. Their rigorous duties can often contribute to a back injury.
Spinal Cord Injury
The spinal cord is the main relay system in the body's nervous system. It is essential for proper functioning of organs and limbs. Even minor injuries to the spinal cord can cause long-term problems.
More and more research is being conducted on brain injury. It has been found that the shock waves from an explosion can cause injury to the brain, even though there may be no apparent physical signs.
Explosions from bombs and mines have caused many serious injuries to our soldiers on land. Advanced protective gear has worked to save lives, but knee injuries continue to be a serious problem.
Loss of Limb
The loss of a limb will change one's ability to do many things in life. We have seen many people, veterans and not, who have risen above the challenges faced by this loss. Veteran compensation can help provide a springboard into your new life.
Illnesses Caused by Agent Orange
The controversial use of Agent Orange became far more controversial when the devastating effects on the lives of our own soldiers were discovered. Four decades later we are still finding consequences from exposure to this deadly chemical.
One of the many consequences of exposure to Agent Orange is soft-tissue sarcoma. It is a form of cancer found in the soft tissues of the body. Soft tissues include muscles and connective tissue.
Autoimmune disease is one of the most prevalent diseases in our country today. There are over 80 different autoimmune diseases that have been diagnosed. Some of these have been commonly found in our veterans.
High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can come from many causes: heredity, diet, lack of exercise and many more things. It can also be a result of exposure to Agent Orange and combat duty.
Radiation poisoning can be deadly. When it is not fatal, the effects can be debilitating. Our military personnel are probably more likely to be exposed to radiation than the average citizen.
Eye injuries have become more and more common amongst our military personnel. Partial or full blindness from eye injuries will affect the types of work that can be performed by a veteran.
Hypertension is another word for high blood pressure. Studies have made possible links between hypertension and exposure to Agent Orange. Many of our veterans who served in the Vietnam war were exposed to this chemical and now suffer from hypertension.
