Veterans Disability Benefits Questions
If you are a veteran of the United States military who is suffering from an injury or disease related to your service, a Veteran’s Disability attorney can meet with you to discuss your eligibility for benefits. Disabled veterans may be eligible for benefits from the Veterans Administration (VA), but obtaining benefits can be labor-intensive and confusing.
What Are The Types Of Compensation Offered By The VA?
The VA offers a number of different options for veterans and their families to apply for benefits, all of which a disability lawyer can help with.
Disability compensation is a tax-free monthly payment for veterans with a disease or injury sustained or aggravated in the line of duty.
Dependency and indemnity compensation is available for a surviving spouse, dependent parent or dependent child of a veteran who died from a service-connected disease or injury. Additional monthly compensation may also be available to veterans suffering from specific disabilities and to veterans requiring full-time assistance or aid.
If you or your family fit into any of the above categories, speak with a veterans disability lawyer right away.
Can A Veterans Disability Attorney Help Me Qualify?
While your disability lawyer cannot guarantee your results, he or she can help you prepare for a possible appeal to help prove service connection or to establish the severity of a disease or injury that is already service-connected. With the VA, you must show thorough medical evidence that you have an injury or disease that was incurred or made worse in service.
