How We Can Serve You
Veterans dedicated a part of their lives to serving us, and we want to give back by serving them. In the U.S., veterans are entitled to certain benefits – but the process of applying for and receiving benefits can be cumbersome. Many claims are denied. Our veterans' rights attorney in Hingham is here to help.
We handle all types of cases for veterans, including:
- Discharge upgrades: If you were dishonorably discharged, you may not be eligible for many veteran benefits – but you do have the option of requesting a discharge upgrade. We can help you pursue this upgrade to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
- Discharge recharacterizations: If inaccurate information or a mistake has left you with a discharge that you feel does not accurately reflect your situation, you can request that it be recharacterized – and we can help.
- Disability appeals: To receive disability benefits, you will have to prove that you have a qualifying disability, which the VA must approve. If the VA denies your claim for disability benefits, we can help you appeal it.
Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
Between the 1950s and the late 1980s, military service members and their civilian families living and working at Camp Lejeune – a Marine Corps base in North Carolina – could have been exposed to contaminated drinking water. Though the contaminated wells were shut down in 1985, many people were exposed to the dangerous chemicals in the water supply for decades.
Though the Department of the Navy is denying all civil claims from individuals exposed to Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water, we are still here and ready to fight for you. If you or your loved one has been impacted by the Navy base’s contaminated water supply, we can help you pursue a civil claim or wrongful death claim to get the compensation you are owed.
Do you have a claim related to Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water? Do you need help seeking veterans' benefits? Call Sawin Law, P.C. at 781-410-4177 today.
