Douglas G. Jackson, the founder of The Law Firm of Douglas G. Jackson, recently had another article published in Military1. Jackson’s article discussed the new and important Court decision in Saunders v. Wilkie.
Until this case, the Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”), did not consider pain, alone to be a disabling impairment. This case changes all of that. The Federal Circuit, in interpreting the applicable statute, determined that a disability is any “functional impairment of earning capacity, and that “pain alone can be a functional impairment,” according to Jackson’s article.
The Law Firm of Douglas G. Jackson is proud to have another article published that was authored by its founder, Attorney Douglas G. Jackson. This law firm strives for excellence, in part, by its focus on educating both veterans and other VA disability lawyers on new laws that impact veterans. Jackson goes on, in his article, to discuss how this ruling can help veterans and how it can progress other issues that will help veterans, such as being used to prove symptoms from burn pit exposure.
