Hypertension Cases for Atlanta Veterans

Veterans with Hypertension

Of all the many illnesses caused by Agent Orange, hypertension (also known as high blood pressure) is one that may soon become a presumptive condition. Studies have been conducted at the request of the Department of Veterans Affairs to determine the relationship between exposure to Agent Orange and hypertension. While these studies support a connection, the Secretary has yet to find that hypertension is presumptively linked to Agent Orange exposure.

This does not mean that such a case will not be successful, however, additional supporting medical evidence is still currently needed to provide a link. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with hypertension and you feel that it is related to your military service, or exposure to Agent Orange, please contact an Atlanta veterans disability attorney at our firm.

We have been helping disabled veterans and individuals for 40 years to obtain their benefits. Having been involved in the system for this long, we know the frustration and heartbreak that you can experience, not to mention the injustice. We are here to help and we welcome your call.

Experienced Guidance from Stevens & Sullivan, LLC

Some people who have hypertension have no noticeable symptoms. Veterans should get regular medical exams to detect and treat hypertension early on. Many people with hypertension experience chronic headaches. Their vision can become indistinct or they may see double. Vertigo or a dizzy, spinning sensation are other possible signs of hypertension.

Signs of hypertension include:

  • Upset stomach
  • Fatigue
  • Heart palpitations

There are many other indicators. When you go to your doctor, he or she will test your blood pressure, which is the most important test.

If your military experience is the cause of your hypertension, we will need to provide documentation supporting this. Our firm is experienced working with doctors and medical professionals to provide the supporting evidence required in a veterans disability claim. We know what information is essential to provide and the most effective ways of presenting your claim so it clearly shows your eligibility. We have helped thousands over the years and we look forward to helping you.
