Agent Orange


I have chronic heart failure and I'm being paid at a 100% TDIU due to other conditions such as PTSD , hearing loss, etc. I was in the USMC for 4 years and spent a year in Nam in '67 and '68. Is there any way Agent Orange could be tied into heart failure? I'm being treated at the VA for the heart failure. Thanks for all you do Jim!


Jim's Reply:

Heart failure can be caused or contributed to by ischemic heart disease (IHD) or as it's commonly known, atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. If it is determined that you have IHD, that's an agent orange presumptive that you can and should file for. Good luck sir.
