Dallas Veterans Disability Claims Attorney

Providing Legal Guidance to Our Country’s Bravest

Millions of military veterans live with a disability suffered in their line of duty. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was established to provide support to our veterans, including distributing disability benefits as needed. However, the VA has gained notoriety for red tape and mismanagement that keeps brave men and women who served our country from getting their needed and much-deserved disability benefits.

At Coats & Todd in Dallas, we are proud to be able to offer our legal services to military veterans from all branches of the United States Armed Forces. We thank you for your service and all you have done to make our country the best it can be. If you are a veteran living in Texas who needs help securing disability benefits, it would be our honor to represent you.

Our law firm is here to help you secure disability benefits from the VA if you served in:

  • U.S. Air Force
  • U.S. Army
  • U.S. Coast Guard
  • U.S. Marine Corps
  • U.S. Navy
  • U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Officer Corps

You have done so much for our country. Let us return the favor by representing you. Call (888) 898-9189 now.


Common Injuries, Illnesses & Symptoms Experienced by Veterans

As a military service veteran, you can qualify and file a disability claim for a wide variety of injuries, illnesses, symptoms, and debilitating conditions. Severe physical injuries like amputations obviously call for disability benefits. But it is important to remember that a large number of veterans suffer from unseen or unnoticeable injuries that can be just as debilitating, such as mental traumas. If you have suffered any sort of injury – psychological or physical – in your line of duty, you should see if you can receive veterans disability benefits from the VA with our help.

Some of the most commonly reported disabilities among veterans are:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): The theater of war can be traumatic to even storied veterans who have been deployed multiple times. If you suffer from PTSD and its many complications, including depression, anxiety, paranoia, and mania, then you deserve veterans benefits to help you stay financially afloat while you try to recover.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): Concussive blasts are not entirely uncommon to the active military member. Repeated exposure to strong concussive forces may cause permanent brain injury.
  • Eye injuries and vision loss: Did you suffer an eye injury while serving your country? It may be difficult to find gainful employment due to it. Veterans disability benefits could be made available to you for your vision loss.
  • Hearing loss: The loud sounds of gunfire, explosions, and vehicle engines can cause hearing loss. Recently, it was found that 3M dual-ended earplugs provided to the vast majority of military service members from 2003 to 2015 were defective and unable to protect the eardrums as advertised. If you have been experiencing tinnitus after ending your active duty service, you may be eligible for disability benefits.
  • Amputations: Leg, foot, hand, and arm amputations suffered in the line of duty should automatically qualify you for disability benefits. Yet, the VA may still complicate your claim and wrongfully deny it.
  • Joint stiffness or pain: Long hours of service and training each day can begin to wear down on your joints. Even young service members may start to experience joint pain and carpal tunnel-like symptoms after just a year of enlistment.
  • Severe back pain: Heavy backpacks and gear carried by certain service member roles can cause a lifetime of chronic and debilitating back pain.
  • Heart complications: The stress of active duty is known to cause mental health concerns, but it also puts stress on your heart. Many veterans are later diagnosed with a variety of heart complications, including high blood pressure (hypertension) and heart disease.
  • Progressive muscular weakness: Lou Gehrig’s disease is diagnosed with inordinate frequency among military service veterans. If you have been experiencing muscular fatigue at an unusual or alarming rate, you should see your doctor to check for progressive muscular weakness.
  • Gulf War Syndrome: Veterans of the 1991 Gulf War may experience Gulf War Syndrome, an unusual and largely not understood combination of symptoms, like migraines, exhaustion, and breathing complications. It is believed that exposure to certain pesticides and vaccines used throughout the region causes this disabling condition.

Can I Receive Veterans Disability Benefits Even Though I Can Continue to Work?

Many veterans are called the “walking wounded” because they seem to have no disability at all, despite being diagnosed with serious mental and physical health conditions. If you are one such veteran, then you are likely still able to find employment. Does that mean you cannot receive your VA-provided disability benefits?

No. You can find and keep employment in all fields as a military veteran while receiving VA disability benefits. The only exception is if you are received Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDBIU) benefits. As a TDBIU recipient, you should have already been deemed unable to find gainful employment by the VA due to the extent of your disabilities. Being employed while holding this designation can disqualify you for any future benefits.
