Recently, Veterans Affairs (VA) added three new presumptive Agent Orange conditions. Presumptive conditions are those that VA assumes are related to qualifying military service.

The three additional presumptive conditions associated with Agent Orange and other herbicide exposure during the Vietnam War are:

  • Bladder cancer
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Parkinsonism

Vietnam Veterans with these or other previously identified presumptive diseases (or the Veteran’s survivors) may qualify for disability benefits through VA.

VA is automatically reviewing cases where a Veteran’s or their survivor’s claim was denied for any of the above conditions. The Department will send letters to those affected.

If you or a loved one is suffering from any of the Agent Orange presumptions, reach out to Owens & Kurz for help with the claims process. Our team has over 40 years of combined experience and is committed to assisting the brave men and women who risked their lives to protect our nation.
