Charleston, WV Veterans’ Benefits
You made the ultimate commitment when you signed up to fight for your country — but what if you’re injured and the Department of Veterans Affairs doesn’t help? It’s best to have an experienced lawyer on your side, whether you’re filing a disability claim for the first time or appealing one that’s been denied.
Something as small as a paperwork error can delay your claim or even lead to benefit denial. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of the process, and we can walk you through it all from paperwork to appeal.
There’s only one Morgan & Morgan. If you’ve been denied the benefits that you deserve as a veteran, fill out a free, no-risk case evaluation form. We have the resources to take on the biggest bullies and win, and we’ll get you the full amount that you’re owed.
Injuries That Qualify for Veterans’ Benefits
In order to be eligible for veterans’ benefits, you must have either been injured or aggravated an injury during training, active duty, or inactive duty. Here are some examples of injuries that would qualify you:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Tropical diseases (like dysentery and malaria)
- Gunshot or shrapnel wounds
If you have suffered from any of these as a result of your service, you may be entitled to compensation. All law firms are not the same; Morgan & Morgan will fight to get you full and fair compensation so you can focus on your recovery.
Eligibility for Benefits
To be eligible for veterans’ benefits, you must:
- Be a veteran
- Have developed an injury or disease during service
- Have a current condition that was either developed during or made worse by your duty
If your claim has been denied even though you meet these eligibility requirements, our veterans’ benefits attorneys may be able to help.
What a Veterans’ Benefits Attorney Can Do
Although it’s possible to appeal a denied claim for disability benefits by yourself, going it alone can add years to the process. If you don’t want to go through the added stress, contact Morgan & Morgan. We can help you appeal your denied claim, and we’ll fight for the full compensation you’re owed.
You Don’t Pay Unless We Win
We work on a contingency plan, which means that when you win big, we win big. You pay nothing unless we win your case, and our fee comes out of the winnings — never out of your pocket.
