Experience And Results Are What Matter

What are the requirements for veterans disability compensation?

Charlotte, North Carolina residents who selflessly serve in the military deserve the very best benefits. Veterans disability compensation is a benefit for certain veterans. Veterans injuries should be treated seriously and thoroughly. Compensation is available for a wide variety of both mental and physical injuries that a service member may have suffered.

Veterans may be eligible for disability compensation if they meet certain requirements. These include having an injury or disease that was incurred during active military service, active duty training or inactive duty training. It can be for a chronic condition as well, such as a knee condition or post-traumatic stress disorder. Compensation can be from 10% to 100% depending on the injury. If the service member has dependents, the amount will be rated 30% or greater.

Those who are eligible are those who served in active duty, active duty training or inactive duty training along with being discharged under any condition except for dishonorable and the service member is at least 10% disabled. If the injury occurred during inactive duty training it must have resulted from heart attack, stroke, or injury. A service member will need medical evidence of the disability along with an established connection between the injury and the military service event that caused it.

Veterans who have been injured while on active or inactive duty may want to speak with a legal professional who specializes in veterans benefits and personal injury. The backlog of veterans compensation requests can be large so having an experienced attorney there to help can be beneficial. Veterans deserve the best care and compensation for their war-related injuries and other injuries.
