VA DISABILITY

VA Disability claims come in all shapes and sizes. At the most basic level, you need to ask these two questions:

  1. Do I have a disability?
  2. Is the disability due to my military service?

If the answer is ‘yes’, then you have a VA disability claim. Many claims are quite easy, and do not need an attorney. There are times, however, when proving those two simple questions becomes quite difficult. Here at the Veterans Legal Center, we have seen it all.

In short, if you were injured in any way due to your military service, you can likely get compensated for it. This can include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Cognitive Disabilities
  • Traumatic Head Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Vision loss
  • Hearing loss
  • Spinal/Back Injuries
  • Asbestosis
  • Sexual Trauma
  • Radiation Poisoning
  • Exposure to Agent Orange (for Vietnam Veterans)
  • Hypertension
  • Gulf War Syndrome

It depends on what kind of help you need. For an initial claim, the VA does not allow Veterans to retain attorneys when making initial claims. The VA also has a duty to assist Veterans in collecting information, but even with that duty, all too often something slips through the cracks. If you fail to make a claim for an injury, you are not going to be compensated for it. And if you do not provide (solid) evidence, you should not count on the VA to provide it for you. Rather, you can come to us, so we can provide our professional advice and counsultation, to ensure that your claim is done right the first time.

If, however, you have had a claim denied, then we can indeed represent you. Our attorneys are all VA certified to aid you in getting your denial reversed. Here is how it works: We sit down with you and review your denial to determine what went wrong. Once we have determined what evidence is needed, we create the appeal that will go back to the VA.
