Representation for Injured Military Veterans Seeking Disability Benefits
You were there to help your country, now we’re here to help you.
Many veterans who have served their country struggle with serious health problems. Benefits may be available to you through the Department of Veteran Affairs. Unfortunately, getting the benefits to which you are entitled can be difficult. The process can be time-consuming and involves extensive paperwork, medical examinations, and many procedural pitfalls. The government may even deny your application. Many disabled veterans grow frustrated and give up. The attorneys at Larson & Larimer, P.C., are here to help you obtain the benefits you have earned while serving your country.
Our attorneys believe that disabled veterans have earned the benefits that are available to them and are dedicated to helping veterans get what they deserve. If you are a disabled veteran who is struggling with a service-related injury or disease, contact our firm for a free consultation. Many companies offer you the opportunity to work with “claims agents” who are not qualified to advise you on the law. You have worked hard for your country, now let the experienced disability attorneys at Larson & Larimer, P.C., work hard to get you your benefits.
Applying for disability benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be a difficult and time-consuming process. An attorney can often make the VA decide your claim more quickly. Without legal counsel, you may find yourself at a severe disadvantage. VA laws and regulations are often difficult to understand and change frequently due to governmental regulations.
Veterans who are denied disability benefits should always have legal counsel to file an appeal on their behalf. Contact the attorneys at Larson and Larimer, P.C., if you have applied for disability benefits and received a denial letter.
How much a lawyer can charge for their services depends on several factors. Attorneys may charge between 20% and 33½% for the handling of an appeal, but can charge no more than 33%. The attorney only receives fees if the veteran wins the appeal and is awarded benefits. The VA typically pays these fees as a lump sum payment.
Larson and Larimer, P.C., is honored to represent veterans and their families. Our experienced veterans’ disability benefits lawyers are guaranteed to provide the strongest advocacy possible to obtain the benefits you have earned and so rightfully deserve. At Larson and Larimer, P.C., we don’t get paid unless we win.
We represent veterans filing claims for:
- Disability Compensation
- Unemployability Claims
- Dependents Indemnity Claims
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Toxic Chemical Exposure
- Worsening Existing Disability
The VA is not known for efficiently or adequately processing disability claims. The government has experienced a significant increase in applications for disability claims and appeals. Many of the claims involve complex disabilities, such as traumatic brain injury, requiring more evidence and longer processing periods. It is not uncommon for returning combat veterans to experience symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, including anxiety and depression. Yet getting VA approval for PTSD disability benefits is all too often a grueling process. The majority of these claims are denied initially because the applicant lacks proper evidence.
If you are having trouble obtaining disability and veterans’ health benefits, the process of gathering additional evidence is often overwhelming. You need the attorneys at Larson and Larimer, P.C. to advocate for YOU.
