Veteran Disability Benefits
Veterans are entitled to disability benefits based on injury or illness that was either acquired during time of military service or was exacerbated as a result of military service. It is vital that the disability for which one seeks benefits is "service connected." With the help of a VA benefits lawyer, you can get the disability benefits you deserve, even if you have been previously denied benefits. You may also be eligible for back pay for entitled benefits.
VA disability benefits are unique, because eligible veterans may receive benefits based on a percentage of disability ranging from 10% to 100%. Surviving spouses of deceased veterans whose death was caused by a service-connected illness or injury may also be entitled to VA benefits.
The law is constantly changing when it comes to VA disability benefits. Certain conditions which were previously denied are now qualifying service-connected illnesses. Some of the conditions for which the Veterans Administration may now award VA benefits include:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Heart Disease
- Agent Orange illnesses
- And more
To find out if you may be eligible for VA benefits, previously denied benefits, spousal benefits, or back payment of disability benefits, contact a disability lawyer for more information or to begin pursuing your VA benefits case.
