Sustaining Orthopedic Injuries to Neck, Back and Spinal Cord During Military Service
Military training and service often places servicemen and women at greater risk for orthopedic injuries. For example, soldiers deployed to the Persian Gulf during Operation Desert Storm often wore heavy battle gear and Kevlar helmets while riding in trucks over rough desert terrain. These soldiers often reported extreme neck pain and other injuries sustained during service. In some cases, the injuries were so severe that they permanently changed soldiers’ lives.
If a neck or back injury has changed your life, you may be eligible for veterans disability compensation. This compensation provides monthly payments that will help you make ends meet if you cannot work or participate in activities you once enjoyed.
At The Rep For Vets®, our highly qualified VA-accredited claims agents understand that the constant jarring motions, carrying of heavy equipment and repetitive striking of the ground from heights during military activities can cause mild to severe back and neck pain. Unexpected accidents can also cause back pain or make existing pain worse.
Our claims agents represent military veterans nationwide with many different types of neck and back disabilities from service-related injuries:
- Back strain
- Herniated discs
- Ruptured discs
- Slipped discs
- Neck injury
- Spinal cord injury/paralysis
