Eligibility for Veterans Disability Compensation

What makes one eligible for Veterans Disability Compensation is the relationship between the physical or emotional disability and the veterans time in service. Typically for physical things, it will be an injury in the service. Sometimes an injury that doesn’t seem particularly serious at the time but develops more serious sequelae as the person ages.

Or it can be a mental or emotional problem that becomes more severe after leaving service. Typically, exposure to things like combat or other serious injuries where people are killed or the veteran himself is injured or threatened lead to such situations as PTSD or depression. They can lead to consequences from being exposed to serious explosions and result in concussions, although those don’t always seem serious at the time.

It often appears the people suffer what are called Traumatic Brain Injuries and the the sequelae of that manifest itself as people get older.
