How an Attorney Can Help
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is an extremely complicated institution that is overwhelmed by the large number of veterans requiring assistance for their injuries and disabilities.
From beginning to end, it can take countless months to work through the disability application and appeals process, with each phase requiring additional medical records and other paperwork that must be submitted in perfect form within tight deadlines. Any minute discrepancy or error on your application can lead to a denial.
A veterans’ disability lawyer will serve as a strong advocate and guide, helping you smoothly navigate through the VA process. We can help lift some of the burden from your shoulders by helping collect medical records and other documents, putting together a compelling argument for your approval, and ensuring that your application is complete and error free.
Our West Palm Beach veterans’ disability lawyers have years of experience guiding veterans through this process and are able to successfully build claims that demonstrate a veteran’s injuries were a direct result of their service in the military.

Qualifying for Veterans’ Disability
To qualify for veterans’ disability benefits, an applicant must meet four requirements:
- They are a veteran
- They are currently suffering from an injury or medical condition
- They were injured or exposed to a disease during their service
- Their current disability is directly related to their time in the service
Often the most difficult part of applying for disability is proving your injury or condition happened during your time in the military, or that it was exacerbated or aggravated from your service.
Applicants will need to have a medical diagnosis of their current condition as well as medical evidence of the connection between their condition and their service. This can be difficult to prove. We have years of experience representing injured veterans and will review your medical records and compile a compelling claim on your behalf to get you the benefits you need.
We have helped a number of veterans who have suffered from the below injuries, as well as others:
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Gulf War Syndrome
- Exposure to toxic chemicals

When applying for veterans’ disability, the VA will determine the amount of payment a veteran will receive based on their percentage of disability. This disability rating is determined based on medical records and evidence of the debilitating qualities of an injury or condition.
An applicant will be assigned a rating between 10 percent and 100 percent, which is considered a full disability. Depending on their disability rating, a veteran could receive anywhere from $129 to $3,000 per month in benefits. A rating will also take into account multiple conditions and any dependents of a veteran.
Because so much weight is given to a disability rating, it is important that your application include a comprehensive medical report detailing the effects your disability has on your ability to carry out everyday activities.
Our West Palm Beach veterans’ disability lawyers will help you gather all of the information necessary for a complete application in order to get a disability rating that is representative of your injuries.
