Help for Obtaining Benefits for Common Veterans’ Disabilities

Published on May 28th, 2019

Americans are proud of those in the armed forces who have served our country through both peace and war. Every day they risked their lives to keep us safe so that we can live in a free and open world.

Unfortunate Returns

Unfortunately, some of the veterans who brave battles come back scarred. Be it mental and/or physical scarring, these individuals look to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (the VA) to obtain disability benefits. Symptoms like traumatic brain injury (TBI), loss of limbs, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are just some illnesses covered under VA provisions.

However, it’s not always easy to get approved for these benefits, let alone complete a claim. This is especially true when the vet has a condition that necessitates relying on others for help. In these situations, the assistance of a surrogate is required.

The Role of Veterans Benefits Lawyers

This is where veterans’ benefits lawyers in Alabama and across the United States are the most effective. They work with vets to navigate the bureaucracy, find solutions to claim issues, and appeal claims when necessary.

Required Information

What these attorneys need in order to proceed are a few pieces of information. One is the VA C-File that lists the pertinent information about the vet’s injuries and how the VA listed them. Another is a list of all the hardships the veteran has due to these disabilities.

Armed with this information, veterans’ benefits lawyers in Alabama begin working on the veteran’s case. They contact the VA to determine if there are any discrepancies in the listed conditions that may be delaying approval. If so, they help the vet file the proper changes. If not, then they try to discover where the claim is halted.

In the end, waiting around to see what happens is not the way for a veteran to get the disability benefits they need. Action, including working with veterans’ benefits lawyers like those at Jackson & MacNichol Law Offices, can clear the field for a quicker response, so contact us today for a free evaluation.
