According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), veterans and their dependents make up almost 20 percent of the population in the United States. Unfortunately, thousands of veterans claims are filed every year, and the government often rejects or denies these claims, even when the family needs and deserves those benefits. When a veterans benefits claim is reduced, denied, or ignored, it hurts not only veterans, but also their families and loved ones.
At Berg Injury Lawyers, our dependable veterans disability attorneys have been protecting the rights of victims for nearly 30 years, and we want to protect your rights too. Get Berg! Call (800) 400-BERG and get the help you deserve.
Service-Related Health Problems
Many of our country’s fighting men and women suffer from a wide range of physical and mental health problems. Traumatic brain injuries, severe burns, spinal cord injuries, exposure to toxic chemicals, and severe lacerations are but a few of the many conditions veterans experience.
Other health problems can include cancer, depression, diabetes, Gulf War Syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many other illnesses.
Veterans Disability vs. Social Security Disability
Veterans disability benefits are different from Social Security Disability claims and can be complicated to pursue alone. Having a veterans disability lawyer on your side can help you get the money you need—the money you deserve—for your injuries.
You may be eligible for veterans benefits even if you are receiving Social Security or if you are still working. The process of filing for veterans benefits is complicated, and the paperwork and waiting times can be frustrating. For the California veterans benefits lawyers with which we partner, it is important that injured veterans and their families get the money they need.
