Veterans' benefits lawyer: Fighting backlogs against bonuses

Veterans in Pennsylvania are waiting longer than they have ever done before in order to receive their benefits. Meanwhile, VA claims-processing workers receive bonuses for avoiding those claims that require extra processing time. It appears that a veterans' benefits lawyer will have his or her work cut out for them.

More Pennsylvania vets suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder

There is an invisible affliction that is affecting and debilitating our servicemen returning home to Pennsylvania from combat overseas. Unlike gunshot wounds and the visible effects of injuries such as scars and amputations, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) leaves no outward physical sign. According to a professor at Harvard Medical School, there is, however, a visible change in the brain of someone suffering from PTSD.

Veterans' benefits: a top priority for Pennsylvania homeless vets

Pennsylvania ranks fourth in states with the highest veteran populations. It's been estimated that in just one of The Keystone State's 67 counties there may be between 20,000 to 30,000 veterans. As many more vets are discharged from our armed forces, those numbers are expected to grow and sadly enough, the numbers of homeless vets is also expected to grow. For those vets who have found themselves homeless, getting set-up with their veterans' benefits as quickly as possible will be a top priority.

Once again, an elderly and dependent resident suffered the type of neglect that should not occur in a civilized and compassionate society. The latest occurrence is the third nursing home neglect incident to bring attention to the facility and follows close on the heels of another which occurred only three months ago and resulted in a resident's death.
