“Do I qualify for VA disability?”
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) evaluates claims for VA disability on a case by case basis. The process can take several months to years to complete.
In general, you may qualify for veterans disability benefits provided you meet the following criteria:
- Have served in active duty, inactive duty for training, or active duty for training
- Have been at least 10 percent disabled due to an injury or illness that is “service-related”
- Have received a discharge other than dishonorable
Additionally, provided you meet this criteria, you must also provide the following:
- Medical evidence of your disabling condition (medical examination)
- Evidence that your disability was caused by injuries or illness incurred as a result of your service (service-related)
It’s important to note that a “service-related” injury does not need to have taken place on the battlefield or in the course of active combat. You can still qualify for disability caused by injuries or illness incurred in the course of other service, such as an injury suffered playing basketball in a military base facility.
A veterans benefits lawyer with experience helping clients in High Point NC can help you determine your eligibility and the best legal path for pursuing benefits.

“What kind of benefits does VA disability provide?”
VA disability comes in the form of monthly payments. These payments are designed to make up for lost wages and pay expensive medical expenses, and can be a huge help to veterans struggling with disability.
Provided you are approved for disability benefits by the VA, the actual amount you receive depends on the “VA disability rating” you are assigned based on your medical records and other supporting evidence.
You can also receive additional money depending on your marital status and whether you have dependent children. For more information on VA disability payments based on disability rating, please visit the VA online.
“Do I really need a veterans benefits lawyer?”
There is no law requiring you to hire an attorney to pursue a VA disability appeal, but the statistics show the advantages.
Roughly 30 percent of disability claims to the VA are denied. And alarming statistics show that errors may be made in more than 60 percent of those decisions.
A veterans benefits attorney serving High Point and the Triad can help position your case in the best possible way to obtain approval for VA disability benefits.
In particular, you may want to consider a VA-accredited veterans benefits lawyer like Scott Scurfield at Riddle & Brantley.

Scott and his team of paralegals and case managers are passionate about serving those that have served our country and would love to help you however they can.
