As a member of the U.S. Marine Corps, you went bravely into harm’s way to fulfill your mission. You honored the Marine Corps’ motto, “Semper Fi” — always faithful. As a Marine veteran, you have a right to expect your country to keep the faith, too, if you have disabilities related to your time in the Corps and you need help. But qualifying for veterans’ disability compensation can be a challenge — even for a Marine. This is why you need to call the Marine veterans’ disability lawyers at our firm. Let our team help you get the compensation you deserve.
Several types of benefits are available to Marine veterans for disabilities related to injuries or diseases that developed during active military service or were made worse by military service. Many Marine Corps veterans may suffer hearing loss from repeated exposure to weapons, aircraft, vehicles, and industrial activities, entitling them to disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Marine veterans who served in Southwest Asia in the 1991 Gulf War and have symptoms of undiagnosed illnesses may apply for disability compensation regardless of whether they can directly trace their injuries or illnesses to operations in Desert Storm or Desert Shield.
Marine and Navy veterans alike are at higher risk of developing certain kinds of respiratory-related diseases because of asbestos, toxic fumes, and vapors commonly found on Navy ships. Marine veterans disabled by VA health care may also be entitled to receive disability compensation
The lawyers at our firm are skilled at helping U.S. Marine veterans establish their entitlement to disability benefits.
If you believe you may qualify for compensation from the VA based on a service-related injury or condition, contact us today for a free consultation with an experienced Marine veterans’ disability lawyer.
