According to recent VA statistics, more than 250,000 veterans receive compensation for arthritis. In fact, a recent VA study found that as many as one-third of U.S. veterans suffer from it. For many of these military veterans, arthritis develops as a long-term effect of an old military injury — harm caused to muscles, bones or joints during service.
According to a survey conducted by the VA Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, veterans were twice as likely as non-veterans to report symptoms of chronic joint pain. At The Rep For Vets, our highly qualified VA-accredited claims agents understand how serious this joint pain can be, and how it can keep you from doing the things you once enjoyed.
Clients are veterans nationwide who want to spend pain-free time with their families. They want to work hard and take care of the people they love. Sadly, they can’t do many of these things because of joint pain.
When Old Injuries Lead to Arthritis
There is not always a direct relationship between the seriousness of the accident and the seriousness of the injuries sustained. Former servicemen and women can walk away unharmed from very serious accidents. At the same time, small accidents often lead to life-long health problems, like arthritis and joint damage. Sometimes arthritis may become so severe that military veterans are unable to work.
Because these challenges that arthritis victims face are so serious, it is critical that they work with a well-qualified advocate to get the VA disability compensation they deserve. At The Rep For Vets®, our VA-accredited claims agents offer encouragement and support for veterans, advocating forcefully and effectively with one goal in mind: helping military veterans get the benefits they deserve.
Many veterans turn to attorneys or advocates for assistance. Our VA-accredited claims agents represent military veterans with arthritis and other types of serious joint pain. If you have arthritis related to military service or that was made worse during your time in the military, you deserve a hopeful future. You deserve the right kind of care and benefits.
