A Texas veterans’ disability attorney can help you get the benefits you need after returning home from the military with a service-related injury, condition, or illness.
What does sacrificing for your country truly mean? While all soldiers leave their families, put their lives on hold, and put themselves in danger when they enlist, there are millions more who also sacrifice their health while protecting our freedom. In fact, according to the American Community Survey, an estimated six million veterans suffer from a disability, and over half of those disabled veterans were injured or harmed while serving their country.
At Morgan & Weisbrod, we are dedicated to fighting for the rights of disabled Americans. Advocating for those who have fought for our country overseas holds great importance for the attorneys at our law firm, and we are committed to helping you through the process of successfully securing the benefits that you and your family need. With our many decades of experience, our focus on personal attention, and our in-depth knowledge of veterans’ disability law, we will secure your benefits as soon as possible.
Veterans’ disability benefits are for a wide range of injuries and conditions – and not just the ones you can see.
It might be obvious that a solider who lost his legs in an IED explosion is disabled, or that a soldier who permanently injures his spinal cord in a helicopter accident needs medical and financial support when he returns home. But all wars, including the Vietnam War, Korean War, Iraq War, and the War in Afghanistan, also produce a large number of “walking wounded,” military men and women who may seem healthy and able, but who are suffering from life-altering health issues tied to their service overseas. These conditions can make it difficult to work, continue healthy relationships, or even complete daily tasks.
Here are just a few of the most common injuries, symptoms, and illnesses suffered by U.S. Veterans:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head injuries
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Eye injuries and visual impairment
- Inner ear injuries and hearing loss
- Back, neck, and spinal cord injuries
- Joint problems
- Sexual trauma
- Lou Gehrig’s disease
- Cushing’s Syndrome
- Gulf War Syndrome
- Sleep apnea
- Complications from Agent Orange exposure
- Complications from radiation exposure
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Heart disease
- Mental disorders
If your condition, illness, or other health problem was caused by your military service, and if your life is significantly affected by your disability, then you should speak to a lawyer immediately about beginning the process of securing veterans’ disability benefits from the Veterans Administration (VA).
Don’t continue to suffer in silence – after your sacrifices, you deserve your health and some support
Some veterans are reluctant to seek help for some of their war-related conditions, especially anxiety disorders, depression, and other issues that arise from wartime trauma or military sexual trauma. Other veterans do not apply for benefits because they do not understand the process or because their disability makes it too difficult. However, at Morgan & Weisbrod, a veterans’ disability benefits attorney can handle your VA disability claim with speed, delicacy, and a deep understanding of what it is like to suffer a disability without the financial support you need.
