With about 10 percent of living veterans seriously injured while serving in the military and three-quarters of those injured while in combat, there are many physical and emotional hardships, according to the Pew Research Center’s website. The website said U.S. veterans do not believe they are getting enough in the way of disability benefits.
Pew reports veterans who have service-related injuries have a tougher time adjusting back to normal life and three times as likely to say they have post-traumatic stress disorder. The survey also found that 52 percent of veterans don’t believe the government has given them “all the help you think it should.”
While seven out of every 10 veterans rate the care they received as excellent or good, Pew said the judgement varies by a veteran’s era of service. About 71 percent who left action prior to Sept. 11, 2011 rated medical care positively, meanwhile only 55 percent post 9/11 rated the care well
The Law Offices of Harold W. Conick and Associates is highly motivated to assist Veterans in obtaining all the benefits to which they are entitled. It is very important for Veterans to file their claims in a timely fashion, whether it be on their own or through assistance of legal counsel.
