Chronic bronchitis may be eligible for VA Disability benefits
Many people develop bronchitis at some point in their life. Bronchitis that occurs after a cold or respiratory infection and clears up within a few days is called acute bronchitis.
Chronic bronchitis, however, is a serious medical condition often linked to COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Veterans with chronic bronchitis often cough up thick mucus for months and need medical attention. The coughing from chronic bronchitis may leave you tired, fatigued, short of breath, and in general discomfort. But there may be some good news for you; veterans with chronic bronchitis may qualify for VA benefits. That’s right, if you are a veteran you may be entitled to a monthly check, due to your chronic bronchitis.
Chronic bronchitis may be caused by exposure to pollutants in the military
Exposure to chemicals, toxic gas, fumes, dust, air pollution, smoke, and other lung irritants can cause bronchitis for veterans. The VA denies claims for bronchitis and COPD all too often. You fought hard for your country, putting your life on the line. The least the government should do is compensate you for the health issues that came as a result of your service.
Chronic bronchitis may prevent you from working
If you call a bronchitis VA Disability benefits lawyer at Woods and Woods because you can’t work, we may look into total disability due to individual unemployability (TDIU) benefits.

That amount is over $3,332.06 a month. There are also extra monthly benefits for disabled veterans with dependent children and parents.
