VA Disability Appeals

As a United States veteran, you have made huge sacrifices in order to maintain safety and security for the rest of the American population. In the aftermath of such sacrifice, you deserve to be compensated for any ensuing medical care. Unfortunately, obtaining such compensation can be a long and arduous process, particularly if claims are denied. If you or a loved one has been denied VA benefits, do not hesitate to reach out to Bradley Berkland Hagen & Herbst, LLC. There, you will receive the legal support you need during this difficult time.

Qualifying for VA Benefits

Today’s vets deal with numerous medical conditions, many of which leave them eligible for VA benefits. These include post-traumatic stress disorder, exposure to Agent Orange, traumatic brain injury, limb amputation, and spinal cord injuries, among others. If you have experienced these or other conditions, you may be eligible for medical compensation. Working with a VA disability lawyer will greatly enhance the likelihood of obtaining benefits, especially if you have already been denied. Feel free to get in touch with Bradley Berkland Hagen & Herbst, LLC to determine whether you qualify for benefits, and, if so, the best path to securing the compensation you deserve.

Attorney Michael Bradley

Mike served 8 years in the Minnesota Army National Guard in the Judge Advocate General Corps.  While a JAG officer, he completed Officer Basic and Officer Advanced Courses, which included classes at the JAG school at the University of Virginia.  He served as Trial Counsel, Defense Counsel, Troop Command Counsel, Chief of Claims, and Chief of Legal Assistance.

After serving as a military lawyer in the Minnesota Army National Guard, Mike created and was the initial Chairperson of the Military Affairs Committee at the Minnesota State Bar Association.  The Military Affairs Committee immediately became the largest committee of the MSBA.  During military deployments in the mid-2000s, commencing with Bosnia and Kosovo and later Iraq and Afghanistan, Mike helped to create the largest pro bono outreach program of the bar by starting a pro bono program to assist soldier and soldier families in need during deployments. The Military Affairs Committee was subsequently converted to a Section of the MSBA and Mike served on its initial leadership council. This service to veterans through the Military Affairs Committee and Section has been among the most rewarding experiences that he has experienced as a lawyer.
