Although our nearly 20 million living veterans are guaranteed benefits when enlisting, the process of securing disability benefits can be overwhelming and confusing, even for those most prepared. It can be impossible for those that may be dealing with recent trauma or the mental issues that often accompany combat injuries and the recovery process.
As many as 20% of veterans have service-related injuries that have resulted in a quantifiable degree of disability. Although the VA is responsible for medical care and disability benefits, it can be very easy for someone new to the process to slip through the cracks or get caught up in the red tape. It is certainly possible to apply for benefits on your own, but if you would like legal assistance during the initial application process, the Veteran Law Group is here to help. We are also prepared to assist you in your appeal if you have already submitted an application and have received the dreaded denial letter. Appeals worked on by our group will include independent medical and vocational experts augmenting your chances or a favorable outcome.
Veteran Law Group works with many veterans who can no longer work due to their service-connected disabilities and are therefore eligible for Total Disability Individual Unemployability. It is essentially the same as a 100% disability rating, but does not require 100% disability, just proof that the veteran in question can not maintain gainful employment as a result of a service-connected rated at least 60% disability, or two that combine for 70%.
We also strive to get help for spouses and children of service members who died during active duty or training, who can file for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation. If you have recently lost your loved one, we’re sorry for your loss, and want to help you in any way we can.
