Battle Over Burn Pit Exposure

Posted by Allison Sullivan on Aug 14, 2019 10:04:00 AM

 

Data Indicates Many Veterans are Suffering from Smoke Exposure Due to Burn Pits.

You may have heard about the Burn Pit Registry, but what exactly is it? Burn pits were a common way to get rid of waste at military sites in Iraq and Afghanistan. Currently, the VA says that research does not show these burn pits caused any long-term health problems, but much like the veterans affected by Gulf War Syndrome, they are continuing to study it and have created a Burn Pit Registry to keep track of veterans exposed to the smoke and other elements. Nearly 170,000 veterans and current service members have entered information in the registry since it was launched five years ago. These numbers might be the first indication that there is a widespread problem affecting many service members with similar military service.

Veterans Serving Veterans

Posted by Allison Sullivan on Jul 8, 2019 11:25:00 AM

At Bluestein Attorneys our Veteran Affairs team features officers and former enlisted personnel.

At Bluestein Attorneys, we understand what it means to serve our nation in a time of war.

 We have experienced the sacrifices veterans make for our country. Fighting for the men and women who served is not just a profession - it's an honor. 

For the next couple of weeks, we'll be taking time here at Bluestein Attorneys' blog to do something a little different. It's essential when dealing with sensitive legal issues to get an understanding of the attorneys you're looking to represent you — and nowhere is that more important than in Veterans Affairs Disability claims.

Our VA attorneys have agreed to answer a few questions that will help you get to know them a little bit better and to understand why they are so passionate about defending and standing up for the rights of military veterans and service members. Today, we'll meet with Tim Mercer who joined Bluestein Attorneys in 2018.
