San Diego Military Personal Injury Lawyers
Legal Help for Veteran Personal Injuries
Military service men and women put not only their physical wellbeing but their very lives on the line to protect their country. It is an unfortunate reality that many in the line of duty suffer serious physical and emotional losses in a wide variety of dangerous situations. While these dangers are well known to those who choose to join the Military, it does not mean that this trauma is any less devastating for Veterans who are left to cope with their losses.
However, there is hope for physical and financial recovery and the ability to cope with disabilities. As a Veteran, you are entitled to benefits from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). But the process of proving your losses and receive the support you deserve is not always easy. To learn more about your rights to compensation, call The Law Firm of Joseph H. Low IV at (888) 454-5569. Attorney Joseph H. Low IV has dedicated his career to protecting the wellbeing of Veterans and is himself a former Marine, which gives him a deep understanding of those who have put their lives on the line for the United States and must now cope with severe losses.
Denial of Benefits
In order to qualify for VA benefits, you must have served in the Military, been injured or become ill in connection to your service in the Military, and not have been dishonorably discharged. If the VA finds that any or all of these are not true, you may be denied the benefits that you truly deserve. Other types of benefits, such as pensions, will be based on a Veteran’s low income. Should this need for financial support not be believed by the VA, a Veteran could be left without monetary help.
These denials can be caused by a wide variety of reasons, such as an improperly filled out claim form, mistakes in documentation made by Military officials, or improper medical diagnoses. In any of these cases, Veterans can be in danger of not receiving benefits that will pay for medical care and support their financial needs when they are unable to find gainful employment.
Proving Your Need for Compensation
The best way to prevent a denial of benefits is to properly assess your losses and need for support before filing a claim. Through medical examinations, documentation, and proof of the cause of your losses, you can properly create a claim that illustrates your needs. In the event of a claim denial, you will need to examine the grounds for the denial and the exact reasons why the VA decided you did not deserve benefits.
Was your injury or illness during your service not properly documented by Military medical workers? Did your injury or illness present itself after the completion of your service, but was not clearly connected to your Military service? Were you dishonorably discharged by the Military? Was your current financial situation or ability to be employed not properly illustrated by your claim?
In any of these cases, the skilled help of an attorney will help you to prove your losses and receive the specific benefits that will help you to move forward with life after the Military.
