1. How long do I have to apply for VA benefits?

There is no statute of limitations on VA benefits. Whether you’re a Vietnam veteran or just returning from a tour of duty in Afghanistan, you may apply for and receive VA benefits for any service-connected injury, disease or disability.

If you’ve applied and been denied, there are a few appeal deadlines you need to meet. Otherwise, you’ll have to start the process over again. Our team will make sure you don’t miss any of these important filing deadlines that could further delay your claim.

2. I don’t live in the Triad. What should I hire an attorney in Winston-Salem to represent me? Shouldn’t I hire a local attorney instead?

No matter where you live in North Carolina, your Veterans’ Disability claim will be processed through the regional Veterans Administration office in Winston-Salem. If your case goes to a hearing, it will most likely be heard in Winston-Salem.

By working with the Deuterman Law Group, you will be working with a local, experienced, VA disability attorney.

3.Can I get VA benefits for PTSD?

Absolutely! Thanks to increased awareness, veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder are finally getting access to the medical treatment and benefits they are entitled to. The Deuterman Law Group has helped many clients living with PTSD secure benefits. These cases are becoming an increasing part of our practice, and the VA is taking a more active role in identifying and addressing PTSD.

However, that doesn’t mean that it’s easy to have a PTSD disability claim approved, especially if you don’t have an attorney representing you. The VA has very particular rules about these types of claims. Every VA disability case is different, and this is especially true with PTSD cases. We understand the depth of the impact PTSD can have on a veteran’s life and relationships. We understand PTSD is a very personal and private matter. We do everything we can to protect veterans’ privacy and dignity while making the case for disability benefits.

4. What if I can’t afford an attorney?
