Titusville, FL, Veterans Benefits Lawyers
War veterans selflessly put their lives on the line to fight for the rights and freedoms our country enjoys today. Unfortunately, some veterans in Titusville, FL, and across the country do not enjoy the fruits of their sacrifice. Getting something as basic as quality healthcare can be cumbersome and frustrating. Despite risking their lives in the trenches for an entire nation, some veterans cannot even afford to stay alive after retirement.
As someone who fought for your country, you deserve all the love and respect there is to offer. You deserve to be treated for your injuries and any health issues arising from those injuries.

There should be a plan to help you transition smoothly from the war zone to your comfort zone.

How Can a Veterans Benefits Lawyer Help?
There are so many advantages of working with experienced veterans benefits attorneys. Here are a few ones worth knowing:
Taking Care of Your Mental Health
Many veterans struggle with mental health problems, especially returning from war. Post-traumatic stress disorder is one of the most known struggles many veterans have to deal with. On top of all that mental stress, the situation could go from bad to worse when veterans discover they are ineligible for benefits. This can be heartbreaking, especially considering that they fought to defend their country.
As a result of the denial, some veterans sink into depression. Others resort to drugs, alcohol, and other substances to get rid of the physical, mental, and emotional pain. Working with an experienced veterans benefits lawyer is one of the best ways to avoid these problems. Rather, you will rest assured that someone is fighting for your rights.
When you have an attorney fighting for you, you do not have to deal with the VA directly. Instead, the attorney will streamline the process and act as your representative, ensuring that your best interests are taken care of. You will then have all the time you need to rest and hang out with your friends and family, knowing that someone is working tirelessly to get you the benefits you need and deserve.
Handling Complex Paperwork and Processes
The process of applying for veterans' benefits can be complicated. One of the most difficult things about this process is the paperwork involved. Depending on the nature of your disability, you will need to fill out mountains of paperwork and submit them to the VA.
Remember, not every veteran comes back from the battlefield in one piece. Many have lost parts of their bodies to war. Others lose their mental peace to the painful memories of war. If that is what you are going through, the last thing you expect is to fill out complex paperwork to prove that you are eligible for benefits. Instead, you expect the VA to look at your situation and grant you the benefits you deserve with no questions asked.
But that's not how the VA works. Without proof, you may not be able to enjoy the benefits you need and deserve. Unfortunately, there is no avoiding paperwork when filing for benefits. But fortunately, this is one of the many reasons you need an attorney.
An experienced lawyer will not only help you fill out important paperwork to submit to the VA and other agencies but also review existing paperwork to ensure they are free from errors. Did you know that the VA denies thousands of applications every year due to avoidable mistakes?
Since veterans benefits attorneys specialize in these kinds of applications, they know what works and what doesn't. This judgment usually depends on the nature of your disabilities.
Proving Your Disability
The sad truth is that you may not be eligible for benefits even if you are disabled. To be eligible, the VA will need proof of these four elements:
- You are a veteran
- You have an existing medical condition
- You sustained an injury or medical condition during service
- Your current condition is related to your tour of duty
Initially, you might think these four elements are quite easy to prove. But unfortunately, that is not always the case. The VA receives thousands of applications every year. Some are genuine, others are not. For this reason, chances are the government agency will treat your application as not genuine even if you made an honest mistake. The last thing you want is to discover that the letter you have been waiting for in the mail has finally arrived, but not bearing good news.
You deserve benefits if you meet the four requirements stated above. An experienced attorney can help prove those elements. They know what counts as strong evidence and what won't even get past the first phase of the application process.
Saving You Time and Money
When filling out your application for disability benefits, certain mistakes can cost you valuable time and even money. Besides, given that the VA receives thousands of applications every year, it is important that you get things right the first time. Remember, most initial applications usually get denied. In other applications, the VA might require further proof or documentation. Hiring an attorney helps you bypass these errors, saving you money and time.
Getting a Fair Disability Rating
After confirming your disability, the VA will award you benefits based on your disability rating. This rating starts from 10% and can go all the way to 100%. Unfortunately, many veterans miss out on the benefits they are entitled to because of an unfair rating.
It is also important to note that the benefits you may be entitled to also depend on whether you have dependents. The more dependents you have, the more benefits you may be entitled to.
The disability rating system is not perfect. Sometimes, the VA might provide a rating that does not align with your injuries. However, if you do not do anything about it, chances are you will need to pay for your medical expenses out of pocket. In addition, you may struggle to take care of yourself, especially if you are unable to seek employment because of your disability.
An experienced veterans benefits attorney knows how the disability rating system works. As a result, they know what seems unfair or reasonable. If you believe that you received an unfair rating, your attorney can help you file an appeal with the VA.
During the appeals process, a veterans benefits attorney can help you build a stronger case to convince the VA that you deserve a better rating. This is because they know what counts as strong evidence of disability.
Filing Survivor Benefits
You may be eligible for survivor benefits if you are a spouse, dependent child, or parent of a veteran. Some of these benefits include education, commissary and exchange privileges, death pension, healthcare, home loan guarantee, life insurance, and so on. The process of filing for these benefits is different from filing for benefits as a veteran with a disabling condition. An experienced veterans benefits attorney can help you file for these benefits, ensuring you receive what you are entitled to.
Why Morgan and Morgan?
Now that you know the importance of working with a veterans benefits attorney, you are probably wondering where to find such an attorney. There are so many veterans benefits attorneys in Titusville, FL, but not every law firm or attorney you come across is the right choice for you. At Morgan and Morgan, we can represent you better than any injury law firm in Titusville and the entire state of Florida.
But don’t just take our word just for it—here is why we are the number one law firm for veterans:
We Have the Resources to Fight for You
Earlier, we mentioned that the VA would not approve your claim just because you served your country. Instead, they will need evidence. And to gather the right evidence, you need access to powerful legal resources.
At Morgan and Morgan, we boast some of the most powerful legal resources in the world of personal injury. We have the financial power and access to experts in different fields, including cutting-edge legal technology, to build strong cases on behalf of our clients.
We Have Lawyers Who Are Actually Veterans
Did you know that Morgan and Morgan has an army of over 800 personal injury attorneys? At least 100 of them have served in the US military in different capacities. There is no better way of filing a veterans benefits claim than getting the help of an attorney who is also a veteran.
Such an attorney better understands your pain and frustration. In addition, they know how to navigate complex legal processes to help their clients obtain the benefits they need and deserve.
We Will Maximize Your Benefits
One of the many advantages of working with a Morgan and Morgan attorney is that they know how to maximize benefits. Because we deal with injury cases all the time, we are familiar with the devastating effects of such injuries. For example, depending on the severity of your injury, you might need a caregiver to take care of you.
If so, did you know that you can also petition the VA to provide caregiver benefits? This ensures that the individual taking care of you is also well-taken care of financially.
But of course, every case is unique and that's why it is always advisable to consult a Morgan and Morgan attorney. We will review your case and determine the best legal pathway to take. Either way, you can rest assured that our attorneys have your best interest at heart.
You Do Not Owe Use Anything Unless We Win
One of the many reasons some veterans do not seek the help of an attorney is because they are concerned about the costs involved. This is a genuine concern. After all, the fact that you are applying for benefits means you need financial assistance. Therefore, it is unreasonable to charge you upfront for our services.
Instead, we charge our clients on a contingency basis, meaning they do not owe us anything unless we win. The greatest benefit of this system is that it gives you access to some of the best attorneys around without worrying about whether you may be able to afford them.
We Offer Free Case Evaluation
When you contact us about your case, we will review it free of charge and get back to you about it. If you have a valid case, we will guide you on the next steps to take. As mentioned before, our goal is to ensure you receive all the benefits you need and deserve.
