Just for Military and Vets: Questions About Compensation and Medical Care

The legal system can be confusing, just like the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be confusing. It is normal to have a lot of questions about injuries, medical care and compensation. Our lawyers and staff can help you get answers to important questions like:

  • Is this injury going to affect my career? Will that affect how much injury compensation I receive?
  • How long will it take to finish my case?
  • How much compensation should I expect to receive?
  • Can the VA withhold my benefits if there is a problem with my injury claim?
  • What is the Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs (CHAMPVA)?
  • Do we need to pay back TRICARE for medical costs that were paid? Who keeps track of my reimbursements and liens?
  • Will I need to go to court?
  • Do I have to hire a lawyer to handle my injury case?
  • Should I take the settlement offer from the insurance company?
