Maximize Your Veterans Affairs Benefits
Honorary discharge from military service typically qualifies you for a range of Veterans Affairs benefits and services. VA assistance can be valuable if you need help obtaining:
- Medical and hospital care
- Disability benefits if you are unable to work because of one or more physical or mental disabilities
- Assistance with reintegration issues such as reemployment rights, consumer rights, insurance for service personnel and veterans, vocational rehabilitation, suicide prevention, and more
Details differ from one veteran to another, as to which services he or she is eligible for and how to obtain them. Communication with the VA can be challenging for veterans not used to working through all the necessary red tape. J Bryan Jones III Law Offices in Lafayette can advise you based on your particular circumstances. We serve clients throughout Louisiana as well as in the Houston metro area.
Our primary focus is representation of veterans and surviving family members in connection with disability compensation, dependency and indemnity compensation and special monthly compensation.
We Can Help You Document Your Individual Unemployability For The VA
Some veterans attempt to gain access to benefits on their own. If you try this, you may lose valuable time as you try to decipher all the necessary forms and document your injuries or disabilities correctly. Losing time means losing money for many veterans. An experienced lawyer can help you through much more efficiently. Once your disability claim is approved, you will receive back pay.
Furthermore, if your claim is denied, an attorney can appeal on your behalf before the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) and if necessary, before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
J Bryan Jones III Law Offices encourages veterans to bring questions and concerns to our attention sooner rather than later. A well-documented application for benefits will give you a greater likelihood of avoiding a denial.
