We help veterans across the country get the benefits they have earned

Physical Injuries from Service in the Armed Forces

The VA's system for evaluating physical injuries is extremely complex and allows the VA a number of ways to improperly deny claims and minimize ratings. For nearly 20 years, our veterans disability attorneys have helped veterans from across the United States obtain veterans disability benefits for both generalized and localized physical injuries and conditions of all types, including:

  • Back, neck and spinal cord injuries (herniated discs, impinged nerves, broken vertebrae, paraplegia, quadriplegia, et al.)
  • Amputation injuries (hands, feet, arms, legs, above or below the knee and elbow joints)
  • Disfiguring injuries
  • Loss of use injuries (due to severe fractures, nerve damage, muscle or soft tissue damage and a wide range of other causes)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Damage to internal organs and systems (liver, cardiopulmonary system, digestive system, etc.)

Depression and Anxiety Caused by Physical Injuries

It's not uncommon for veterans who have serious physical disabilities to become frustrated by the inability to do things they were once able to do and to feel trapped, useless, and even worthless. The consequence of these feelings is that they can lead to depression and anxiety. If this occurs, a veteran is entitled to service connection and a separate rating for the condition.

Can't Work?

The VA also rarely informs veterans that if they are unable to work due to their service connected disabilities they may be entitled to Total Disability due to Individual Unemployability (TDIU). This is commonly referred to as unemployability and pays at the 100% rate.

The firm's broader background and experience in litigation (and the knowledge of how to best prepare a case and present evidence that's given us) helps us to accomplish that goal.
