Advancements in battlefield medicine have led to many situations where soldiers who otherwise would have died now instead “merely” lose a limb. While certainly good for them and their families, these crippled veterans will need to spend the rest of their lives paying for and getting used to their prosthetics, and filling out military compensation claims to pay for it. As such, many wounded warriors will hire a professional company to manage, accumulate and hand over the claims. While they collect a fee for their services, this may be to the advantage of veterans who need to spend more of their time with their families, their job or in physical therapy. There are also various free services to help veterans properly obtain their benefits and navigate the maze of paperwork.
