Government Benefits Claims

Will Your Lawsuit Settlement Affect Your VA Benefits?

The simple answer is no. If you receive benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs and were injured in an accident, you can still file a claim against the at-fault party for damages. Any settlement or jury award you received from the negligent party will not affect your VA benefits.

Government on the Lookout for Double-Dipping

The federal government will make sure you are not double-dipping into federal programs to receive medical treatment from the VA, along with Medicare or Medicaid assistance.

Turn to us for assistance with your VA benefits related to your accident.
