We Can Help You Get Your Rightful Disability Benefits And Ensure You Are Properly Rated

When you signed up to serve our country through military service, you were no doubt informed that in case of injury or disease occurring during or soon after your time in the army, navy or other military branch, you could be eligible for disability benefits.

J Bryan Jones III Law Offices in Lake Charles, serving Louisiana and the Houston metro area, offers information, advice and advocacy for veterans who are eligible for disability benefits.

You may have been honorably discharged and are now unable to work because of one or more service-connected disabilities such as a:

  • Cardiovascular condition
  • Dental and oral condition
  • Dermatological condition
  • Ear, nose or throat condition
  • Endocrinological condition
  • Gastrointestinal condition
  • Genitourinary condition
  • Gynecological condition
  • Hematologic and lymphatic condition
  • Infectious disease
  • Musculoskeletal condition
  • Neurological condition
  • Ophthalmological condition
  • Psychological disorder
  • Respiratory ailment
  • Rheumatological disease
  • Hernia, hemorrhoid or similar ailment

You may be struggling with a mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety or depression. You may suffer from a chronic knee condition or a physical condition triggered by exposure to Agent Orange, ionizing radiation, mustard gas or other toxic substances present in the environment where you served. Many veterans find themselves disabled as a result of a combination of several conditions. As long as a disease, injury or disability began during military service or within one year afterward, it should qualify a veteran for disability benefits.

Correct Compensation Plans Depend On Proper VA Disability Rates

When you apply for disability benefits, you can expect one of these outcomes:

  • Approval for a full grant of benefits, rated at 100 percent
  • Approval for a partial grant of benefits, rated from 10 percent to 90 percent
  • Full denial of benefits

Attorney J. Bryan Jones III can help get you connected with the VA to get your rightful benefit payments active. This law firm can also go to bat for you if the VA does not rate your disability properly. An inappropriately low rating will result in inappropriately low benefits. A large part of our mission is to help veterans overcome obstacles to the highest ratings that can be documented to the satisfaction of the VA.

Other VA Compensation Plans

Other compensation plans for veterans and their families include:

  • Dependency and indemnity compensation (DIC) for surviving spouses, children and/or parents
  • Special monthly compensation (SMC) for veterans or veterans' spouses in need of care or attendance because of particular disabilities
