Agent Orange is a defoliant that the U.S. military often used to clear jungles of vegetation. The U.S. military used Agent Orange in many places across the globe. The numbers of veterans exposed to Agent Orange is staggering. The health effects have killed and disabled generations of U.S. service members.
Agent Orange causes many health problems because it contains a compound called dioxin. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “dioxins are highly toxic and can cause reproductive and developmental problems, damage the immune system, interfere with hormones and also cause cancer.”
Receiving a denial from the Veterans Administration can be a terrible shock to many veterans and their families. After serving our country, the VA has denied your disability benefits and you don’t know what to do next. While lots of veterans win their VA disability appeals, it is not an easy process. VA law is very complex and more complicated than most veterans realize. You should consider hiring a VA benefit appeal lawyer.
The U.S. military gave troops and their families contaminated groundwater for decades. There are many instances where the military knew or should have known that service members and their families were being exposed. There is no clear idea how many veterans have been poisoned. It is suspected that many generations of military members and their families have developed serious medical conditions from contaminated groundwater poisoning. The sad truth is many have lost their lives from cancers, Hodgkins disease, miscarriages, neurological disorders, and more.
Clear and Unmistakable Error (CUE) claims are also known as Motion for Revisions. CUE claims basically state that the rating decision is wrong on its face and should be set aside. The veteran must show that the facts in the C File and regulations at the time of the decision could lead to only one conclusion and that the Veterans Administration was wrong. CUE claims are not approved very often and many veterans should consider an appeal or other legal avenues in the claims process instead.
Many veterans will find that their impairments worsen over time. When your service-connected impairments worsen, you may be entitled to a VA disability rating increase. That means you may be owed more monthly compensation for your mental and physical impairments.
Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits are administered by the Veterans Administration. TDIU benefits are for veterans that can no longer work because of a mental or physical impairment. TDIU benefits are a safety net for unemployable veterans. TDIU benefits can help disabled veterans get their lives back in order.
