How We Help Veterans
As veterans themselves, Ward Black Law’s veterans benefits lawyers know that life after military service can be hard. We want to offer support to our nation’s veterans in any way we can. That is why we offer additional services beyond providing legal representation in disability appeals cases.
Social Security Disability Claims
One way we aid veterans is by providing help with filing for social security disability. It is important to understand that social security disability and veterans disability are two distinct disability benefits. A disabled veteran can apply for and receive social security disability benefits and veterans disability benefits simultaneously. Much like the process of applying for veterans disability, the social security disability application process can be a long and confusing one. Another similarity is that social security disability claims are often denied the first time around. Having a skilled social security disability representative from Ward Black Law on your side can make the process easier.
Asbestos-Related Disease Claims
At Ward Black Law, we also help veterans pursue compensation from manufacturers and distributors of asbestos products for asbestos-related illnesses, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, esophageal cancer and asbestosis. Until the 1970s, all branches of the United States military held asbestos in high regard for its affordability and its ability to resist heat. As a result, the material was widely used in everything from the construction of military bases to the insulation of naval ships. Consequently, veterans who served between the 1930s and the 1970s are at risk of developing asbestos-related illnesses. In addition to receiving compensation in the form of VA disability benefits, veterans may be able to pursue compensation from the companies responsible for manufacturing and distributing the asbestos products around which the service person worked or lived. The veterans benefits lawyers at Ward Black Law will help you with this process and will ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
Veterans Support & Assistance
Our team is also ready to help veterans discover and utilize the wide range of assistance agencies available to them. These programs include employment assistance programs, NC veterans support networks, homeless veterans outreach programs, and many more. We can also help connect veterans with VA-certified veterans service officers.
