Good Reasons for Veterans to Consult a Lawyer About Benefits Due Them

Published on May 28th, 2019

The bravery and courage of our veterans in this country have done much to protect the freedom we all enjoy. Serving in the military involves difficult tasks and offers few amenities. Many veterans will come home after serving, but continue to suffer from severe physical, mental, or emotional issues that can wreak havoc on these former soldiers’ and sailors’ lives. Some are unable to work due to their injuries and disabilities. The government has various programs to assist veterans. If you’re a veteran who qualifies for compensation, it’s wise to confer with an experienced veterans’ benefits lawyer in Texas for expert legal guidance.

What Types of Disabilities Are Covered by Veterans Benefits?

Sometimes, injuries sustained in war are physical and readily seen. In other cases, veterans sustain injuries that are harder to detect. These include mental and emotional disorders that include PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), panic attacks, severe anxiety, and depression. It can be more challenging to prove that the veteran is suffering from these unseen conditions. This is where having a knowledgeable veterans’ benefits lawyer in Texas can truly help you to obtain all the benefits that you deserve and are owed under the law.

What If You Have Already Been Turned Down for Benefits?

It is not uncommon for veterans to be denied disability benefits when the file for the first time. This is often due to not meeting the strict deadlines, as well as supplying incomplete or inaccurate medical and other documentation that is required. A reputable veterans’ benefits lawyer in Texas can provide legal representation to help you comply with requirements for documents and other evidence you need to prepare to win your appeal.

As a veteran, you deserve the benefits you have earned, and Jackson & MacNichol Law Offices are highly recommended by other veterans and medical experts to help you fight for those benefits. Visit us today to find out what we can do for you.
