Why You Should Seek Help When Applying for VA Disability Benefits

Published on November 10th, 2020

The process of applying for VA disability benefits should be straightforward. Part of the benefits package of signing on for military service is the understanding that the government will compensate you and your loved ones should the need arise.

Enlisting in the military is not for everyone. The ones that do so are supporting their fellow citizens. Benefits promised to them should not be withheld.

Applying For VA Disability Benefits

If you or a loved one experiences an injury, either physical or mental, while in service to the country, you should qualify for disability benefits. Unfortunately, there is often hold up during the process. Some types of disability do not show up until years after your service. If that is the case, you may find the disability board resists your claim.

Even disability claims that result in the need for a medical discharge from active duty can create problems. While you may receive a percentage of the disability you are entitled to, the claims board may resist giving you the full amount.

When you receive the results from your VA disability claim, it is important to know that this is not the final answer. If you receive a denial, or if your percentage of disability award is lower than you believe it should be, you have options. Get in touch with an experienced VA disability attorney to help. The professionals at Jackson & MacNichol Law Offices are available by phone or online and are ready to help you navigate the claims process.
