Knee and Joint Pain Benefits for Veterans
Connecting Knee and Joint Pain to your Service
There are several ways a veteran might be able to connect their knee or joint pain to their time in the service including any of the following:
A Direct Service Connection
Establishing a direct connection to your service requires the following:
- An event during your service, like an injury or illness
- A current and diagnosed knee condition
- A medical condition directly related to something that happened while you were in the service
As an example; you were in a pickup game while serving on active duty and you fell and hit your knee. Following your service your knee is painful and you require physical therapy or even a joint replacement. Since your injury occurred during your service, there are benefits available to help you cover these costs.
As a veteran, you earned the benefits and coverage during your service to our country. You should take advantage of them and ensure your health and your future.
Denied Benefits from the VA?
Did the VA deny you the benefits you are entitled to? If so you must file your appeal as quickly as possible. There is a limited time to submit the required evidence and the VA is strict timelines and requirements they adhere to.
Are you one of the thousands of Veteran’s Claims that have been denied by the VA? Have you received a decision that is lower than you expected? As a Veteran who has served your country, YOU should receive Disability Benefits.
If you were injured and haven’t received the VA benefits you deserve, please call Chad Barr Law today at (407) 599-9036 and discuss your case with an experienced Orlando Veterans Benefits Attorney, or fill out our contact form to schedule a consultation.
