Did Your Agent Orange Exposure in Vietnam Damage Your Health?
North Carolina Vietnam veterans—your brave service is not forgotten. Though years have passed since your term of military service, you may still be suffering both physically and emotionally. At The Piemonte Law Firm, we are proud that our injury and disability lawyers can serve you, just as you so courageously served our country years ago.
If veterans who served in Vietnam between 1962 and 1975 have a disease that the Veterans Administration acknowledges as having a connection with Agent Orange, the law presumes that these veterans were exposed to Agent Orange. The VA’s list of “Diseases associated with exposure to certain herbicide agents” includes but is not limited to the following:
- Chronic lymphocytic leukemia
- Hodgkin’s disease
- Heart disease
- Multiple myeloma
- B-Cell leukemia
- Parkinson’s disease
- Prostate cancer
- Respiratory cancer
- Diabetes mellitus
- Soft tissue sarcoma
Have you claimed benefits based on an Agent-Orange-related disability, only to have your claims denied? Our attorney is skilled at guiding disabled veterans through the appeals process. Talk to the Piemonte Law Firm team even if you are already receiving some benefits. You could be eligible for a higher disability rating and a benefit increase.

When prior exposure to Agent Orange affects your current health state and ability to work, it’s time to lodge a benefits appeal. As we advise you on the best paths toward full disability compensation, our goal is to help you achieve the benefits package you deserve.
