Claims we Handle
The attorneys and staff at Legal Help for Veterans focus on the following areas:
VA regulations have liberalized the evidentiary standard for veterans in a war zone claiming service connection for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This regulation will simplify and streamline the processing of PTSD claims.
It is important to file a disability claim with VA if you have experienced a head injury in service and suffer from TBI symptoms. This is true even if you have not yet been diagnosed with TBI.
We have experienced professionals on our staff who have worked in the mental health field before. We also have access to psychologists and psychiatrists who are able to provide a medical opinion linking your current psychological disorder back to your time spent in service.
When a veteran is unable to work but the VA rating schedule does not permit a total disability rating, two opportunities remain to achieve a total disability rating: total disability based upon individual unemployability (TDIU) and under an extraschedular basis.
It tends to be difficult to receive a service-connection for an orthopedic injury, especially when some veterans may not have sought medical treatment for their injuries while in service. Our law firm understands the difficulty veterans face when dealing with VA.
Hearing loss is a common disability found in veterans. While hearing loss can be due to a number of factors, like the use of medications and old age, approximately one-fourth are due to noise exposure.
When someone suffers a sexual assault, physical assault, or sexual harassment, they might continue to relive the event and even suffer from the residuals. The individual may suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an anxiety disorder, or one of many depressive disorders.
Veterans who are totally disabled and have special needs due to their service-connected disabilities may be entitled to additional benefits. This additional entitlement arises if the veteran is housebound or in need of aid and attendance. This is a different benefit than if the veteran requires aid and attendance due to non-service-connected disabilities.
