VA Benefits Attorneys
The U.S military maintains a sacred commitment to leave no one behind on the battlefield. However, once veterans shed their uniforms and leave the military for civilian life, many are left behind by our country's institutions. 13 percent of America's homeless served in her armed forces. Too often, our veterans receive little to no help with treating mental and physical disabilities sustained in service. These brave men and women struggle to manage chronic pain and other service-related injuries while simultaneously grappling with mental illnesses like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which can lead towards substance abuse. Facing a diminished capacity to work and the psychological challenges of readjusting to and navigating civilian life, it can be extremely difficult for veterans to access proper health care and pay their bills without aid.
Veterans often have to fight through the layers of corruption and bureaucracy in the Department of Veterans Affairs to obtain the financial compensation they're entitled to. After a lengthy process of paperwork and hoop-jumping, veterans often see their legitimate claims denied for invalid reasons, with filing an appeal their only recourse. It’s deeply demoralizing to risk your life for your country, only for your country to turn its back on you when you're at your most vulnerable. At Wettermark Keith, we understand the pain and frustration you’re going through, and we want to represent you to get the help you deserve.
