More help from Maurice…
A very worthy question, one that collides with the human tendency to equalize with our surroundings. We accommodate…hoping the problem will somehow resolve itself or just go away. This happens…rarely. When we add the uncertainties of “where do I turn?” and “how do I proceed?” when we’re already hurting or damaged in some way, the inhibitors intensify.
Some of you suffer from work-related injuries. Moreover, where immigration status might be in question, another layer of inhibition can further prolong your suffering. (Note: more about this sensitive matter can be found in my Blog Straight Talk About Workers Comp Cases & Undocumented Workers.)
Others of you suffer in mind or body from injuries related to your military service. If your case has been under-valued by the VA, you have your own disincentives, based on interminable bureaucratic hoop-jumping you’ve already been put through. (Note: If you’re female, see my Blog Female Veterans Will Face Unique Health Issues, Part I ~ The Facts and Part II ~ The Implications.)
So, back to “How Long Must I Suffer?” The answer is this: it’s up to you.
The Bottom Line: You’ve probably suffered long enough. We at The Law Offices of Maurice L. Abarr specialize in both types of cases. We have the unique skills and proven strategies for redress. We can’t begin applying them on your behalf without you taking the first step. Contact us–or have a loved-one do it–for a case evaluation. Feel free to use our convenient online chat service. There is no cost for case evaluations. Ever.
