You served your country as a member of the U.S. Army and returned home to move ahead with your life. If your path has been more difficult because of injuries or illnesses related to your military service, you may be eligible for disability benefits
At Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, we focus on helping Army veterans obtain the disability benefits to which they are entitled. We focus our practice on assisting veterans because we respect the service and sacrifice that veterans have given our nation. As part of our personalized service, we do not charge Army veterans unless we are successful in securing their VA disability benefits.
About three million veterans receive disability benefits from the VA. We’re proud to say that Jan Dils, Attorney Law, have helped hundreds of them. Several types of tax-free benefits are available to Army veterans for disabilities related to injuries or diseases that developed during active military service or were aggravated by military service, including:
The VA has recently broadened the eligibility for Army veterans of any era to qualify for disability compensation from PTSD. Army veterans who were not directly engaged in combat may still qualify for disability compensation for PTSD as a result of stress caused by fear of hostile enemy or terrorist activity.
Many Army veterans suffer hearing loss from repeated exposure to weapons, aircraft, vehicles and loud industrial activities, entitling them to disability compensation. Army veterans who served in Southwest Asia in the 1991 Gulf War and have PTSD, fibromyalgia (FM) or symptoms of undiagnosed illnesses may apply for disability compensation, even if they can’t directly trace their injuries or illnesses to operations in Desert Storm or Desert Shield. Army veterans disabled by VA health care also may be entitled to disability compensation.
For our services, we charge Army veterans NO up-front lawyers’ fees. Instead, we work out an agreement in advance about what our fee will be if their benefit is approved. Typically, it’s a reasonable percentage of the eventual award.
