Diabetes & Veterans

Agent Orange exposure during military service is presumed to be a causative factor in development of Type 2 diabetes mellitus. If you are a Vietnam veteran, you are presumed to have been exposed to Agent Orange. Many Vietnam veterans are now of an age where they are developing diabetes — or diabetes which they were diagnosed with in the past is getting worse and causing other health problems.

According to the Veterans Administration, "The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) concluded in its 2000, 2002 and 2004 updates on the Health Effects of Herbicides Used in Vietnam that there is limited/suggestive evidence of an association between exposure to herbicides and Type 2 diabetes."

If you were previously assigned a disability rating by the VA and are now suffering from diabetes resulting in disability and unemployability, talk to an attorney from Daisley Law Offices, P.C. You may be eligible for a higher disability rating — and an increase in benefits.

We are prepared to work to have your rating adjusted upward as a result of your diabetes diagnosis, resulting in an increase in disability benefits for you.

Initial consultations are free. If we win retroactive benefits for you, our attorney fees will be paid directly to us by the VA as a percentage of your past due benefits. From then on, all future benefits are 100 percent yours.

Also note that we represent disabled veterans and civilians in a wide range of injury and disability related legal matters, including Social Security Disability (SSD) denial appeals.
