$90,000 Retroactive Disability Compensation for Veteran
A veteran who was discharged in the late 1990's suffered from pseudofolliculitis barbae - a condition that causes inflammation and scarring of the hair follicles. The veteran could not shave his face without causing painful burning, rashes, and blemishes. The condition was related to forced shaving over the years of military service, which aggravated the condition leading to hardening of the skin and scar tissue. The VA had denied the veteran disability for almost 20 years. The attorney was able to successfully get the veteran's disability approved and the rating was increased by 30%, giving him numerous additional benefits as well as more compensation.
