Our country’s fighting men and women suffer from a wide range of physical and mental health problems, from back pain to post-traumatic stress disorder. Traumatic brain injuries, severe burns, spinal cord injuries, exposure to toxic chemicals, and severe lacerations are but a few of the many conditions veterans suffer.
Other health problems can include cancer, depression, diabetes, Gulf War Syndrome, orthopedic or back problems, post-traumatic Stress Disorder, and many other illnesses. 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.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, there are 23.4 million living veterans and 37 million dependants of living veterans and survivors of deceased veterans. This accounts for about 20 percent of the U.S. population. The number of people who are affected when a veterans benefits claim is reduced, denied, or ignored is tremendous. At Walter Clark Legal Group, we want to help as many people as we can in their time of need.
Veterans disability benefits are different from Social Security Disability Insurance claims. This distinction can be complicated to navigate alone. Having a California veterans disability attorney on your side may help you get the money you need—the money you deserve—for your injuries.
Remember that you may be eligible for veterans benefits even if you are receiving Social Security or are still working.
The system is complicated and the process, paperwork, and waiting time involved in filing a veterans compensation claim can be frustrating. It is important to us that injured veterans and their families get the money they need and don’t deal with the frustration alone . Call us today or fill out a FREE Online Consultation Form.
