When U.S. military service members make sacrifices for the benefit of Georgia and the nation, they rightly expect the nation to keep its promises relating to service-connected benefits and care. Although many are getting these promised benefits, others find that they must jump through numerous hoops first. While this may not be fair, this is the reality, and Georgia veterans should be prepared for it.
Not too long ago, we told you the story of one Georgia veteran's struggle to get the benefits he had earned. He was denied initially and had to file an appeal. After four long years, he finally prevailed and got the benefits he was entitled to.
Sometimes, a vet finds that legal assistance with a veterans disability claim is helpful. We at the law firm of Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC have been helping vets with their disability claims for nearly 25 years. We have helped veterans of recent conflicts in the Middle East and we have helped veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Whether a veteran is seeking benefits for the first time or seeking an increased rating for a current service claim, we are prepared to provide advice and guidance.
We have helped many Georgians with war-related injuries and other service-connected disabilities. It can sometimes be a challenge to prove that a disability is service-connected. Even though it may be clear as day to a veteran that their condition is service-connected, it still must be proved to the government that this is so. We have helped many veterans with this task.
