The Help Disabled Veterans Need
Service members often return from duty after they interrupted their lives and sacrificed their health to protect the country. These heroes are stationed both nearby in Fort Bragg and oceans away. We know that Fayetteville, North Carolina, is home to many veterans. Our law firm — O’Malley Tunstall PLLC — is available to proudly help these brave men and women seek Social Security Disability benefits for veterans.
As is the case with other workers, veterans can have disabilities that keep them from working. Former military members can get benefits through Social Security Disability. These benefits are separate from veterans’ benefits, and former service members often qualify for both. If you are a former military member with a disability, call Susan O’Malley. She is our Social Security Disability attorney serving Fayetteville veterans, and she can guide you through every step of this process. She is a Board Certified Disability Specialist in Social Security Disability law by the North Carolina State Bar.
Helping Our Wounded Warriors Get SSDI Benefits
The Wounded Warrior Project is a program serving injured veterans. Those in the program receive medical attention and pay while being assessed for a return to duty. If you are in this program, are disabled and have been in the military for at least five years, you can begin applying for Social Security Disability benefits. We are available and ready to help you with this process.
Not all war wounds are openly visible the way an amputated limb is. At first glance, many people cannot see certain war injuries, but the unseen injuries are not any easier for veterans to live with and can still keep them from working. These injuries include traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Our law firm is able to help veterans with a range of medical conditions apply for Social Security Disability benefits.
We do not stop fighting for our clients. Many Social Security Disability claims are initially — and even repeatedly — denied. We guide our clients through the appeal process and represent them before administrative law judges. We are skilled trial lawyers and, if need be, we appeal cases all the way up to federal court.
