Understanding Veterans Disability Law

Did you know that there are more than 370,000 veterans living in New Jersey? Out of these, 99,000 are disabled and may be entitled to disability benefits.

When a veteran has a physical or mental injury or illness that has occurred as a result of or during active duty, there are opportunities for them to obtain medical care even after military service is over. When this injury or illness results in disability (also known as a service-connected disability) a veteran is entitled to receive monthly payments which depend on how severely he or she is disabled (also known as their disability rating). A Veterans Disability Attorney can help them get the benefits they deserve.

Prior to 2006 veterans were not allowed to hire VA disability lawyers to represent them. However, in 2006 Congress recognized that veterans should have the right to hire VA claim lawyers because veterans disability law is extremely complex. VA claim lawyers can now represent veterans and their spouses, survivors, and dependents in the Regional Office and the Board of Veterans Appeals.

 

Veterans Disability FAQs

What are the different types of veterans disability benefits?

The Department of Veterans Affairs provides compensation for two types of disability, namely service-connected and non-service-connected disability benefits. Non-service-connected pension is a needs-based benefit program for wartime veterans who are age 65 or older, have limited income, or have a permanent and total non-service-connected disability.

A service-connected disability is when a veteran has become disabled as a result of their service in the United States military. Every veteran applying for disability benefits through the VA needs to prove that the condition occurred during active service. At Wolf & Brown Law Offices, we often discover that clients benefit from claims that they had not thought to include in their cases and therefore do not file claims they think they are not entitled to, when in fact they are. Common types of service-connected disability claims include:

The experienced VA disability attorneys at Wolf & Brown can help veterans whose injury or illness did not necessarily occur during service but was aggravated during active duty.
