Veterans Disability Benefits
In the wake of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, VA benefits are more and more difficult to receive. Partially due to the overwhelming amount of claims, many veterans experience delayed or inadequate medical (including mental health) care, prolonged benefits processing, and other issues. Because of the sheer volume of claims, many have been mistakenly denied.
In 2007, Congress passed a bill to fund more veterans’ benefits. Its purpose was to increase medical treatment options, hire more caseworkers, make VA processes more efficient, help homeless veterans, and more. Additionally, in June of 2019, the Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act was signed into law. This law allows Navy veterans who served offshore in Vietnam to submit disability claims for Agent Orange exposure.
With the passing of these laws, more benefits are readily available for veterans. If you or a loved one are entitled to such disability benefits, Polly Murphy PC will represent you to make sure you are fairly compensated.
