Disabled vets deserve a big "thank you" — not just for the sacrifices they made for our country but for the physical and mental impairments they now live with on a daily basis. Sadly, far too many disabled vets encounter roadblocks when applying for veterans disability benefits. If you are a wounded or disabled veteran who needs help applying for and obtaining Veterans Administration (VA) benefits, our attorneys can assist you.
At the Law Offices of Tony Farmer & John Dreiser, we believe that helping vets is one way to express our gratitude for their service. We have in-depth understanding of the VA benefits process and can guide you through it. Whether you have applied before and been denied or are just starting the process, you can turn to our Tennessee law firm with confidence.
Types of Disabilities That Vets Are Living With
Our Knoxville veterans' disability attorneys assist veterans who were injured on active duty during all wars in current history, including World War II, the Vietnam War and the Gulf Wars. In recent years, claims that were previously denied have been reopened. Even if your claim for VA benefits was denied, it is worth a second try. Please talk to us today if you or a loved one is a vet who lives with any of the following disabilities:
- Chronic disorders
- Cognitive disabilities
- Cushing's syndrome
- Exposure to Agent Orange (Vietnam vets)
- Eye injuries (loss of vision)
- Former POW (prisoner of war)
- Gulf War syndrome
- Hearing loss
- Lou Gehrig's disease
- Physical disabilities
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Radiation poisoning
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Traumatic head injuries
If you are a vet seeking VA benefits, you must first file a formal request or claim with the VA regional office in Nashville. The regional office makes the decisions for basic eligibility and level of disability. The regional office will then issue an award letter or a denial letter. As a vet, there are different levels at which you can be considered disabled — from 10 percent up to 100 percent.
We also represent vets in the appeals process before the Board of Veterans' Appeals. Often, the VA will require further medical evidence to support a vet's claim for disability. If you have been denied benefits, or if you were denied benefits years ago, do not give up hope. Turn to our law firm for help. We have been representing disabled individuals since 1974 and have helped many veterans obtain benefits.
