New Federal Court Ruling Clears the Way for Benefits

A new ruling in the Federal court system grants presumptive disability status to more than 90,000 "Blue Water" Navy Veterans who served offshore during the Vietnam conflict and were exposed to Agent Orange. This disability status was formerly only available to those who served on land or on inland waterways.

"Presumptive Status" Makes Getting Your VA Benefits Easier

This "presumptive status" means the VA presumes your disability is the result of your military service, and that you don't need the usual amount of evidence to file your claim for benefits.

Conditions Associated with Exposure to Agent Orange

If you were a Blue Water Navy veteran during Vietnam, were exposed to Agent Orange and have been diagnosed with any of these conditions, our VA disability attorneys may be able to help you get benefits:

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Parkinson's Disease
  • Peripheral Neuropathy

You can't run the risk of submitting an incorrectly prepared or incomplete application for benefits. The claims process is lengthy already, and if your application is denied, the appeal can take even longer.
