Overcoming the hurdles in veterans' disability claims

Georgia residents work hard to support their families. This hard work can be jeopardized when a person suffers a serious injury that prevents the individual from working. Spouses, children and others are directly impacted when a person suffers a serious injury that prevents the person from earning an income.

Few people know this more than our nation's veterans. As discussed recently in this blog, many veterans suffer serious injuries in connection with their service, including head injuries, mental illness or other conditions. No matter what the specific injury is at issue, it can render the veteran unable to work, and therefore unable to earn an income to support one's self and dependents.

Fortunately, there are options available to help veterans deal with the financial consequences of suffering a serious injury. When the veteran suffers a service-related disability, he or she may be eligible to file a veterans' disability claim. The disability claim, if approved, can provide compensation to the veteran that is tax-free.

There can be challenges with being approved for benefits, however, when it comes to veterans and Social Security disability. For example, questions can arise over the severity of the veterans' injuries, and whether those injuries are severe enough to qualify for benefits. In other cases, a veteran may be able to be approved for benefits, but there can be issues with receiving a higher amount of compensation.

Our firm has significant experience in dealing with the wide range of issues that can arise in dealing with a claim for veterans' benefits. We work closely with our clients to determine their wants and needs, and then put in place a plan to give our clients the best chance of obtaining benefits. Our knowledge and advocacy skills help our clients overcome the hurdles they face when filing a claim for benefits.
