Veterans Disability Benefits
Veterans Benefits Lawyers Help Resolve Injuries of War
American soldiers make the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, and every man and woman who serves our country deserves to be protected and cared for once they return home. The problem is, many Veterans struggle on a daily basis with so many physical and emotional wounds, that it is sometimes very difficult to attend to anything beyond basic survival. Veterans often return home and suffer from one or more of the following physical or mental health conditions:
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Fibromyalgia (muscle pain, stiffness and fatigue)
- Ischemic Heart Disease
- Depression or Anxiety
- Hairy-Cell Leukemia
- Gulf War Syndrome
- Agent Orange Illnesses (acute and subacute peripheral neuropathy, AL amyloidosis, chloracne, multiple myeloma, Hodgkin’s disease, prostate cancer, respiratory cancer, soft tissue sarcoma, and more)
How a Pennsylvania Veterans Benefits Lawyer May Be Able to Help
At Metzger Wickersham, we believe that Veterans who endure the often severe and ongoing impacts of having served our country have a legal right to disability benefits. But the process of having your disability recognized by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be a difficult one. Once your claim is filed, the VA will analyze and sometimes reject or deny your disability claim. It can be discouraging, especially when Veterans and their families need and deserve those benefits to pay for medical care related to physical and mental health problems caused by military service.
To help your case with the VA, you need someone on your side to help you fight for the maximum Veterans disability benefits you deserve. Whether your disability claim has been denied, reduced or even ignored, you should seek the representation of a skilled Veterans disability lawyer who can help you through the process. Call us now for a free consultation: 800-946-9461.
Metzger Wickersham is partnering with another law firm who is nationally recognized in handling Veterans disability claims. Our firms are working together to help any and all Veterans, including widows of Veterans, secure the maximum compensation they deserve for their service to this country. Veterans who suffer from service-related mental or physical impairments deserve maximum compensation so that they can receive proper medical care, now and in the future.
Veterans Benefits Are Your Right – Contact a VA Disability Lawyer Today
According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, more than 20 million American Veterans are alive today. The VA says that their mission is to fulfill President Lincoln’s promise, “To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan,” by serving and honoring the men and women who are America’s veterans. Part of serving and honoring those who have fought for our country is providing the benefits necessary to help our Veterans navigate life after service.
Filing a claim can be a complicated endeavor, in and of itself, but challenging a claim that has been denied is even more daunting. In 2007, however, Veterans and their families gained the right to seek representation by a Veterans Benefits attorney after only one claim denial.
If you or a loved one is a Veteran who has been denied disability benefits, you need a Veterans benefits lawyer in Pennsylvania to help you seek the compensation—and honor—you have earned.
