Skilled Veterans Benefits Lawyers Pursues Compensation for Injured Service Members
trusted attorneys helping you file and appeal VA disability claims
It sounds simple: veterans with disabilities, illnesses, or diseases connected to their military service are eligible to receive tax-free monthly benefits. In reality, however, getting the VA to pay these benefits can be painfully complex. Viterna Law in Belleville exists to help veterans and their families get the compensation they deserve. Led by an attorney who served 33 years as an Air Force medic, our team understands the urgency disabled veterans feel, and we’re here to help you cut through the VA’s red tape.
Don’t lose hope if your claim has been denied
You filed a VA disability claim and waited months, maybe years, only to have your claim denied. You’re frustrated, angry, and not sure what to do. First, take a deep breath and remember that you aren’t alone. The VA reports a claim denial rate of more than 70 percent, citing as reasons incomplete information, lack of necessary documents, and administrative errors. Second, know that you can depend on a lawyer at Viterna Law for assistance. We are highly experienced with the Board of Veterans’ Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and we’re ready to evaluate your situation and take the legal burden off your shoulders so you can focus on your health.
Fighting for benefits for sufferers of PTSD, depression, and other psychiatric disorders
Mental and psychological conditions afflict so many service members. From post-traumatic stress to anxiety to eating disorders and many other maladies, veterans are forced to wage a battle in their own heads. We can help you file initial VA benefits claims, called Fully Developed Claims (FDC), for a mental or psychiatric disorder. We’ll fight hard to obtain the compensation you need to help deal with your condition.
Pursuing benefits for physical disabilities
Thousands of service members come back home facing a lifetime of pain and trauma from physical disabilities, including:
- Severe burns
- Cancer, liver disorders, skin disorders, and other conditions caused by exposure to Agent Orange
- Loss of limb/amputation
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
We have experience representing clients disabled by more service-related illnesses and injuries than we have space to list here. Rest assured we can present your claim effectively.
You may be eligible for survivor benefits
If you are the surviving spouse, child, or parent of a military member who died during service or due to a service-related disability, you may qualify for survivor benefits. The Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) program exists to help people in your situation. There are several conditions or requirements you must meet to qualify. As your attorney, we can help you understand all the rules and ensure that your claim is presented comprehensively.
