Tampa Veterans Attorney Launches Website Dedicated to Veterans Law
Attorney David W. Magann has expanded his practice near Tampa Florida and launched a new website dedicated to helping veterans get the benefits they deserve.
Tampa, FL (Law Firm Newswire) November 12, 2010 – Nearly twenty years ago, David W. Magann was serving his country in the U.S. Marine Corps. Now, he is a veteran making sure veterans in the Tampa Bay area are taken care of when they return home.
The Tampa veterans attorney has been practicing law for over a decade from his Brandon and Tampa offices, building a successful social security, disability, and personal injury practice that locals have come to respect and depend on. The launch of the law firm’s new website, Tampaveteranslawyer.com, will help Magann communicate with veterans who may be returning with disabilities or dealing with claims denied by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
“It really is unfortunate how many soldiers put their lives on the line fighting for our country then they come home and are denied the benefits they have inarguably earned.” Magann continued by saying, “We have experience helping veterans get compensation and treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, Gulf War Syndrome, and assaults that accrued while in the service.”
While the Tampa veterans lawyer is a strong advocate for returning soldiers, enlisted military personnel are not always the only ones in need of representation. For family members of fallen soldiers, the Veterans Administration offers benefits for the soldier’s spouse and children.
“A lot of people are not aware of the different programs offered by the Veterans Administration. Widowed spouses can receive a monthly benefit of $1,154 plus compensation per child,” explained Magann.
The new website will serve as a way to keep veterans informed about new programs and benefits they may be entitled to.
While veterans are in no way required to hire a lawyer, working with one could mean the difference between receiving proper compensation or getting insufficient compensation or being denied.

- PTSD, "Post" Means After And At Any Time
Government analysis finds Veterans with PTSD can suffer for decades before acknowledging the disorder. The year 2014 marks the 100th-year anniversary of the beginning of World War I, the so-called war to end all wars. And in a bit of irony, a study was released on August 8 that has found that, like the consequences of the “Great War,” the after-effects of combat stress among veterans, just like the after-effects of old wars upon conflicts years later, seems to linger for decades. The study, which was commissioned by the Department of Veterans Affairs, tracked veterans from as far back as the Vietnam […]
