Wounded Warriors: Justice Delayed is Justice Denied
The Wounded Warriors Act was set in place to assist military service members in obtaining disability benefits fairly and quickly. Unfortunately, due to a lack of understanding of the regulations in place, administrative law judges continue to wrongfully deny claimants. After 28 years and three tours of service, one of our clients has been denied with issues relating to income level. The Wounded Warrior Act allows for special exceptions to be made for military service members in active duty with regard to military income. Our client has been before the same judge two times over a time frame of approximately a year and a half only to be wrongfully denied each time. After the initial appeal was filed, the case was immediately remanded only to be presented before the same uninformed judge for yet another denial.
Because some of the judges are unaware of the regulations or simply refuse to acknowledge the information when presented to them, this individual continues to live in uncertainty about his future. He is likely going to lose his home to foreclosure in the near future as JBA’s attorney continues to fight for him at a higher level through the appeals process.

The JBA team wants to thank all of those who have served or currently serve to protect this country.
