VA Benefits Lawyers For Louisiana Veterans
If you have been injured while bravely serving our country, there are benefits available to you through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Unfortunately, navigating the red tape to obtain funding for necessary treatment is often a very long and technical process. The experienced VA benefits lawyers at Nicaud & Sunseri Law Firm, LLC, are here to help. From our offices in Metairie and Mandeville, we handle every legal detail so you can focus on your recovery.
Helping You Get The Maximum Available Benefits
We can help you seek the maximum VA benefits you are entitled to for any type of injury you have suffered while in active service, including:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Other psychological or psychiatric disabilities
- Heart disease and pulmonary, vascular problems
- Severe back injuries
- Severe head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Neurological disorders
- Exposure to chemicals, toxins and other harmful agents
- Physical and psychological injuries resulting from sexual assaults
- Gulf War syndrome
Our lawyers also help families apply for VA death benefits after losing a loved one. Additionally, our lawyers also help families collect accrued benefits. These are VA benefits that were still due to the deceased serviceman or servicewoman, for treatment resulting from injuries suffered while in active service, at the time of death but had not been paid prior to him or her passing away.
In other instances, when medical malpractice or negligence caused by VA medical care results in additional disability or death, a claim for additional compensation may be brought under 38 U.S.C. § 1151. These claims are different than the service-connected disability or injury claims listed above and the first injury, but they are compensated in a similar manner. Like any other medical malpractice case, you must prove that the negligent medical care compounded your condition, caused an additional injury or disability, or led or help cause death.
We are here to ensure that you are now treated fairly by the government you or your loved one fought so nobly to protect. We will work hard to ensure that you receive all the VA benefits you are entitled to.
