Tulsa Disability Attorney: Pay Your Respect To Disabled Veterans And First-Responders This Fourth Of July

As we celebrate the Fourth of July this Thursday, keep in mind the people who keep this country safe: law enforcement officials, firefighters, EMS workers, veterans and troops. These great people are the backbone to our democracy and they deserve our support at all times, not just holidays.

Because these workers have such high-pressure, high-stress, high-risk jobs, it is important to remember that many suffer from debilitation injuries. Some of the most common disabilities sustained by first-responders, troops and veterans include:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Hypertension
  • Amputation
  • Eye injuries
  • Hearing loss
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Toxic exposure to radiation
  • Diseases related to air exposure
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome

While some of these great Americans seek relief for their injuries through workers’ compensation or veterans benefits, many are unaware that they may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. It is possible for many disabled Americans to structure their workers’ compensation or VA benefit payments to minimize the impact that the benefits will have on SSDI benefits.

If you are out celebrating this Thursday and you see a veteran or a first-responder, show your gratitude and shake the person’s hand and pay him or her a compliment. Also, remember to stay safe this weekend—avoid drunk driving or boating under the influence of alcohol. If you or a loved one has questions about disability benefits, do not hesitate to contact our Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyers for a free evaluation of your case. You may also reach us by phone at (918) 265-1404.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    - Billy S.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
