Veterans Disability

United States veterans deserve our gratitude and respect – as well as the disability benefits they need after a service-related injury or health issue.  However, obtaining Veterans disability benefits can be a challenge.  The Veterans Administration (VA) system can be time-consuming and frustrating.

Veterans’ Injuries

Millions of veterans who served their country in the Iraq War, Afghanistan War, Gulf War or under any other circumstances have suffered from a wide range of physical and mental health injuries while serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard.

Those injuries include: amputation, cancer, depression, diabetes, exposure to toxic chemicals, loss of hearing, loss of sight, paraplegia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD), quadriplegia, severe burns, severe lacerations, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and uniplegia.

The Veterans Administration provides for specific payments to veterans who have been disabled through the Traumatic Service Members’ Group Life Insurance (TSGLI) and other programs; yet, many veterans are denied benefits – or don’t know that they are entitled to benefits in the first place.  According to current TSGLI Loss Standards, victims of most of the injuries listed above may receive up to $100,000 in VA benefits.

Veterans Benefits Often Wrongly Denied

Although thousands of veterans are entitled to benefits and file claims every year, the Veterans Administration often denies those claims due to misinformation, incomplete information, failure to follow filing procedures and a host of other reasons.  These denials hurt veterans and their families when they need benefits most.

The VA system for filing for benefits is very complicated and precise.  The process, the necessary forms and the waiting time involved result in many veterans and their families who are entitled to benefits simply giving up out of frustration.
