“Do I qualify for veterans benefits?”
Those who have served in our nation’s military and been disabled due to a service-related injury or illness may qualify for VA disability benefits.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has strict criteria that it uses to determine eligibility. In order to qualify you must:
- Have served in active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty for training
- Have been at least 10% disabled due to a “service-related” injury or illness
- Have been discharged without dishonor
In addition to the criteria above, you must also provide:
- Medical evidence of your disability (in the form of a “Compensation & Pension” exam or “C&P” exam)
- Evidence that your disability was the result of an injury or illness incurred while in military service
Does my disability have to be combat-related?
A lot of veterans think that they must have been injured in combat in order to qualify for VA disability benefits.
This is FALSE.
Any disability resulting from “service-related” injury or illness may qualify for VA disability benefits. For instance, you may qualify for disability benefits if you were simply injured while physically located on a military base.
A veterans benefits lawyer serving Wilmington and eastern NC can help evaluate your claim and determine the best legal path forward for seeking disability payments.

“My disability rating is too low. What can I do?”
In many cases, the VA may determine that your disability is less significant than it may actually be. You may be assigned a disability rating that is too low — or over time, the impact of your disability may increase, and you need to have your rating adjusted.

We know how to navigate the system and have obtained increased VA disability ratings for many veterans throughout the state of North Carolina.
If you believe your disability rating should be increased — or you disagree with the rating assigned by the VA — you DO have options.
