Gulf War Syndrome

Gulf War Syndrome

Previously considered nothing more than a myth, Gulf War Syndrome (or Gulf War Illness) is recognized by the Veterans Administration as a disability entitled to healthcare and benefits.

What is Gulf War Syndrome?

Gulf War Syndrome has affected some 250,000 veterans of the 1991 Gulf War and is believed to be caused by the exposure to toxic, chemical weapons, among other things. It causes a wide range of symptoms including headaches, dizziness, memory problems, indigestion, skin rashes, fatigue, poor muscle control and birth defects and cases of leukemia.

This disability was once considered quite controversial, with many suggesting the symptoms were nothing more than the result of the stresses of military life or the result of imaginations running wild. That is no longer the case.

Receive your compensation.

If you feel that you may suffer from Gulf War Syndrome, it is important for you to claim the benefits that have been denied to you for years.

Perhaps you have previously applied for disability compensation and were rejected by the Veterans Administration because they were deemed psychosomatic. Perhaps you never attempted to receive compensation.

A lawyer may be able to help in either case. We can gather evidence to help increase the chances that your claim is approved, determine whether you are receiving the appropriate compensation rating from the VA, prepare the strongest possible case for you and review a decision by the VA office to see if it was handled properly or not.

I was at my wits end when I hired [David] to help with my VA appeals. At the time I was unaware that I also qualified for SSDI, which he filed for and won my case fairly quickly. As far as the VA , the process is a lot slower but he got me to the right doctors and had them fill out the proper DBQs, Nexus Letters and IMOs to help win my cases. I went from 40% to 60% , 60% to 80% , and 80% to 100% Permanent and Total. I’m fortunate to have another veteran help me prevail when I was so close to giving up.

Finally completed my VA claim after 10 years. It all worked out with Mr. Magann's help! I could have never done it without you and your great staff! Great representation with both my VA and Social Security claim. It helps to have a fellow veteran represent me against the Veterans Administration. Semper Fi!

Mr. Magann is a veteran that cares about the well-being of all veterans. And will go the distance for all clients needing help with Social Security claims. I highly recommend if you are in need of an attorney for VA or SSI Benefits.

First off, let me start by saying the level of professionalism from this firm should be the industry standard. Every question I had, from start to finish, was answered in a timely manner, the whole process, from start to finish was transparent and laid out in front of me. David Magann deserves every accolade coming to him now, and in the future. David, my family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

David Magann is the real deal. He helped my son with a VA problem going back over ten years and denied by the VA. Thanks.
