Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I am a combat veteran (OEF/OIF) in 2019-2010. I was injured in combat and suffers from major PTSD as a result of enemy attack during our convoy. I am seeking help to see if I qualify for the purple heart or the bronze star
JA: Was the injury documented to management or HR? What happened?
Customer: Yes, I am 40% service connected at VA for the left foot injury and 100% for PTSD
JA: Have you talked to a VA lawyer about workers' comp?
Customer: Our unit was on a convoy to another FOB and was attacked with RPG's. They were attempting to kill the medic (myself) and the gunner. I have had surgery on my left foot and the experience flashes more times in my mind than i am comfortable with
JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No. I was unaware of worker's comp. I have been off work for 5 months due to the foot injury and don't know if or when I can return

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, my name is ***** ***** I am a retired attorney with 25 years of experience. Thank you for using JustAnswer.com. Please note that our discussions on this site are for general information purposes and do not create an attorney-client relationship or constitute legal advice.

I cannot represent you in Court, or prepare legal documents for you. I can review documents if necessary and they can be attached using the paper clip icon. It is always recommended that you consult with a local attorney for specific legal information for your situation before you act (or refrain from acting).

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves. My ultimate goal is to make sure you get all of the information you need to make an informed decision.

I am normally responding to multiple questions at the same time so please be patient. Rest assured that I am already working on your question, please give me a few minutes to type you a reply.

If any part of your answer is confusing or you do not understand, please let me know and I will explain my answer better. I am committed to making sure that you are satisfied with my answer and JustAnswer on a whole.

Thank you! I'd rather be given the chance to add more information than be rated negatively, so I thank you for that.

If you want to ask for me specifically another time -- for a new question -- ask for "Michael Bradley ONLY" or @Michael Bradley and I will get the question. Otherwise you can come right back into this room for follow-ups, free of charge. If you could put me down as one of your favorites it would be appreciated.

Best of luck to you and thank you for letting me help you today!
