Healing after a bone has been broken is not always as simple as wearing a cast until the bone mends and living happily ever after. Far too often, people who have suffered orthopedic injuries such as broken bones, sprains and strains end up suffering from long-term pain and even disability down the road.
Arthritis and other forms of disabling pain may occur years after an initial injury. If the discomfort that you experience because of an injury that happened during your military service is now reaching such a level that you are unable to continue working, you may have a valid veterans’ disability claim — even years after leaving the military.
Are you experiencing a herniated disc in your back long after a service-related car accident that injured your lower back? Perhaps your current health insurance is paying for medical treatment related to your current conditions — but the VA should actually be responsible for compensating your loss of function originating with your service-related orthopedic injury.
The veterans physical injury claims lawyers at VetLaw have represented many veterans whose injuries and illnesses that occurred during military service continue to cause health problems and disability.
Talk to our attorney to learn how we can help you with your claim, represent and protect you during an appeal, and help ensure that your disability rating is properly determined. We may also determine that complications from your service-related orthopedic injuries also qualify you for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, or SSI if your income is low enough.
We are prepared to advise you on the most likely routes to a successful benefit claim, rating adjustment or appeal. Our goal is to help you recover all compensation and benefits that you deserve. Contact us to schedule a no-obligation consultation and preliminary case review with our experienced national injury and disability law attorney.
