The Alberhasky Law Firm Is Proud To Represent Veterans
If you are a veteran who was injured or developed a medical condition while serving our country, you may qualify for additional benefits if you suffer from a workplace injury after your service. Your prior service-related condition(s) coupled with your recent work-related injuries can create a combined disability that may make you eligible for Second Injury Fund (SIF) benefits. The Alberhasky Law Firm offers Veterans with the guidance and representation they need to receive benefits through the Missouri Second Injury Fund.
Contact us today if you are ready to receive the representation and respect that you deserve. Every veteran we work with receives a 10% discount, regardless of whether or not you qualify for SIF benefits.
What Can A Second Injury Fund Do For Veterans?
If you are a veteran with pre-existing partial or full permanent disability, you may qualify for SIF disability benefits. If you are a veteran whose work-related injuries require rehabilitation, you may be eligible for rehabilitation benefits. It is important to talk to an attorney to help you understand what benefits you might qualify for. Many Veterans do not know that they are suffering from issues like PTSD or depression. These can impact your SIF benefits.
What Conditions Might Impact Veterans Without Their Knowledge?
Some injuries or conditions may be apparent, but others often go unnoticed. As stated above, PTSD and depression are two common conditions that are often left undiagnosed but are still incredibly impactful. A recent study by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs has determined that PTSD is present in approximately 13.5% of Veterans while depression symptoms have been reported by roughly 1 in 3 Veterans.
If you are a veteran, it is possible that you may have one or both of these conditions. If you are injured on the job, you should know that choosing an attorney who understands SIFs well can help you receive the benefits you are entitled to.
