“Why hire a veterans benefits lawyer?”
There’s no law requiring you to hire a veterans benefits lawyer to handle your VA disability appeal. However, your chances of approval increase significantly when you hire a VA disability attorney.
According to a 2017 report by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), those who did not have representation were approved for veterans disability benefits just 24 percent of the time, while those who did hire an attorney were approved 39 percent of the time.
That’s an increase of almost 40 percent.

“How do I get VA disability?”
In order to receive veterans disability benefits, you must first apply and be approved by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The process can be complicated, stressful and time-consuming, but you don’t need to go through this alone. A veterans benefits lawyer serving clients in Kernersville and the greater Triad can help.
In order to qualify for veterans disability payments, you must:
- Have served in active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty for training
- Have suffered at least 10% disability due to an injury or illness suffered while in military service
- Have received a discharge other than dishonorable
You must also:
- Provide medical evidence of your disability (this is in the form of a comprehensive medical exam called a “Compensation & Pension” or “C&P” exam)
- Provide evidence that your service-related disability was the result of an injury or illness incurred while in military service
Medical records, military service records and testimony from friends, family and fellow servicemembers can be invaluable in supporting your claim for VA disability benefits.

“How much will my monthly payment be?”
If you are approved for VA disability payments (and there are no guarantees), the amount per month that you receive from the VA will depend on your disability rating — a percentage in increments of 10 that designates the extent of your disability, at least as determined by the VA.
Getting the VA disability rating you deserve is very important. For example, the difference between a 90 percent rating and a 100 percent rating can be more than $1,000 per month.
You can review the VA’s online compensation tables to see how much you might be eligible for. For example:
- A veteran with a 10% disability rating is entitled to $142.29 per month
- A veteran with a 40% disability rating is entitled to $627.61 per month
- A veteran with a 90% disability rating is entitled to $1,862.96 per month
Having dependent children and/or being married can also increase the amount of money you receive per month from the VA.
“What if my disability rating is too low?”
In some cases, the VA disability rating you receive does not reflect the true extent of your disabling condition. In these instances, a VA disability attorney serving Kernersville and greater Winston-Salem can help file an appeal to get you the disability rating that you are entitled to.
You have many options for appealing a disability decision by the VA, and you can even file a new claim entirely.
It’s important to note that you have only 365 days from the date of your initial decision to appeal a ruling by the VA.
