Requirements For Veterans’ Compensation

Service Connected Benefits

One particular point of pride in this country is that we try to take care of the men and women who have been injured serving our country. Injured servicemen and women need to go through the Department of Veterans' Affairs (VA) for the financial benefits they need to recover from the injuries they suffered in service.

In many cases, the VA denies qualifying petitions for benefits because of technicalities in the filing or because of error. You need a qualified, experienced attorney who understands VA benefits to help you through the complicated steps of filings and appeals to make sure you get the benefits you deserve.

At Daisley Law Offices, P.C., I am proud to help this country make sure that our injured soldiers obtain the financial support they need.

What Does the VA Look at to Decide Whether to Grant Benefits?

The first consideration for the VA when considering a petition for benefits is the status of the petitioning service person. The VA does not even entertain petitions for benefits from anyone who was dishonorably discharged.

Assuming you are in good standing with the armed forces - i.e. honorably discharged - the VA will look at the following factors when considering your petition:

  1. In-service incident: The incident, injury or disease you suffered must have occurred while in active service.
  2. Current disability: The disability must be current at the time you are petitioning for benefits.
  3. Nexus: There has to be a nexus, a connection between the incident and the disability.
