Diabetes Claims for Veterans
In addition to cancer, Agent Orange exposure during military service is presumed to be a causal factor in Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Almost all Vietnam veterans are presumed to have been exposed to Agent Orange. Now, many Vietnam veterans are arriving at an age where they are more likely to contract Type 2 diabetes, or an earlier case of diabetes may be growing steadily worse.
The Veterans Administration explains, "The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) concluded in its 2000, 2002, and 2004 updates on the Health Effects of Herbicides Used in Vietnam that there is limited/suggestive evidence of an association between exposure to herbicides and Type 2 diabetes."
If you currently have diabetes that disables you and keeps you from working, talk to an attorney from the Piemonte Law Firm, even if you are already receiving some benefits. Quite possibly, you are eligible for a higher disability rating and a benefit increase.
We can take steps towards adjusting your rating upwards, resulting in a superior benefits package for you.
All our initial consultations are free. If we win your case, the VA will automatically deduct 20% of your retroactive benefits as our fee. From that point on, 100% of your benefit funds are yours.
We represent disabled civilians and veterans in a wide range of injury and disability-related cases, including Social Security Disability (SSD) denial appeals.
