Veterans Disability Compensation and Claims Appeals

VA DISABILITY RATINGS

Whether your rating was too low from the start or needs to be revisited as time has passed, attorney Cameron Kroeger can assist in applying for an increased monthly veterans’ disability benefit based on an increased disability rating.

TDIU, SMC and CRSC

Cameron is experienced in assisting veterans with a total disability based on individual unemployability (TDIU) claims; Special monthly compensation (SMC) based on aid and attendance or housebound status claims; and entitlement to dual receipt of retirement and VA disability compensation benefits for veterans rated at 30% disabled under the Combat-Related Specialty Compensation (CRSC) program.

CUE CLAIMS

We have experience working with Clear and Unmistakable Error Claims where the initial non-appealed decision by the VA was clearly wrong, thus entitling the veteran to effective dates to their initial date of filing.

DISABILITY OR DEATH DUE TO VA HEALTH CARE and BENEFITS FOR WIDOW/ERS

In addition to the above-mentioned services, Cameron handles disability or death claims due to VA health care or other VA claims which are also known as Section 1151 claims. He also fights for Dependent Indemnity Compensation (DIC) and accrued benefit claims for widows, widowers, and other qualifying survivors of deceased veterans.

CAMERON KROEGER

United States Air Force Veteran and Attorney

Cameron Kroeger is a United States Air Force Veteran and attorney. While in the Air Force, Cameron was stationed in California, Texas, and Georgia; and he deployed to Iraq, Kuwait, and Germany. Cameron worked for the Army as a civilian after leaving the Air Force. After his government service, Cameron returned to college in his home state, and completed his law degree at the University of Nebraska College of Law.

For years, Cameron has helped hundreds of veterans win their VA disability claims at the VA Regional Office, the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, and the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Cameron recently left a large firm that specializes in Veterans Disability Law and is energized to join forces with Elder Law of Omaha to provide quality and personal assistance to our veteran and family member clients.

On behalf of his veteran clients, Cameron has argued, and won, a wide-range of service connection and increased ratings claims. He has convinced the Court and the Board to remand claims for further consideration for numerous types of claims such as:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Physical injuries
  • Military sexual trauma (MST)
  • Cognitive Dysfunction
  • Sleep Disorder
  • Other Mental Health Disorders

Regardless of if the veteran has combat service or if the injuries took place while in-service and whether or not their service records show treatment, Cameron has been able to assist his veteran clients.

Cameron has handled a wide variety of disabilities due to deployments and service in Southwest Asia including Iraq, Kuwait, U.A.E., the Persian Gulf, and in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Those claims include, but are not limited to:

  • Acid Reflux
  • Ulcers
  • Digestive Complaints
  • Skin Conditions
  • Migraines
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Allergies
  • Respiratory Issues
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscle Pain
  • Neurological Conditions

Cameron is well-versed in claims arising from exposure to Agent Orange for non-presumptive disabilities. Some of those disabilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Hypertension
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Kidney Disease
  • Various Metabolic Disorders
  • Pulmonary Fibrosis
  • Bronchitis
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Cameron’s experience dealing with Agent Orange exposure also includes those claimants who served in Thailand, even at non-approved bases. He has even filed appeals on “bluewater” claims for offshore Vietnam service; and Korea service demilitarized zone (DMZ) claims.

Cameron has also helped veterans prove their Vietnam service as part of their Agent Orange claims. He won a remand at the Court arguing that flights over Vietnam should count as Vietnam service for the presumption that the veteran was exposed to Agent Orange in service. Cameron successfully handled appeals for disabilities due to Camp Lejeune contaminated water, cases involving lost records, and those with waiver of debt claims.
