VA Attorney Offers Legal Assistance with Veterans Disability Claims
The brave men and women of our armed forces deserve the highest level of respect and admiration for the sacrifices they’ve made for our country. They also deserve the highest level of care possible when they are injured or become ill as a result of their service, as well as any VA disability benefits they’re entitled to.
Unfortunately, the path to receiving these benefits is not always quick or easy. Many veterans are denied or underpaid benefits and need help fighting to get the compensation they’re owed for their service-connected disabilities.
What Are Service-Connected Disabilities?
Nearly 5 million Veterans suffer from a service-connected disability. A Veteran may qualify for VA disability benefits for physical or psychological impairments. Service-connected injuries often do not become severe until years after the Veteran has left the military. Service-connected disabilities are not always incurred during combat, either.
Total Versus Partial Disability Ratings
In contrast to other disability programs that require a finding of total disability, Veterans can be awarded a partial disability rating and receive benefits while employed.
When a Veteran is found to have a service-connected disability, the VA will assign them a disability rating. This is a numerical assessment expressed as a percentage and is based on the severity of their condition. This rating is used to determine how much money the Veteran will receive from the VA each month.
Although Veterans Law was intended to help and protect the men and women who have served our country, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) does not always rule in favor of the veteran. If you have received a rating decision from the VA and have been unfairly denied VA disability compensation, or you are not satisfied with the disability pay you were awarded, we can help.
