“What kind of benefits can I expect?”
There are no guarantees when seeking veterans disability benefits. The VA system is vast and can be challenging to navigate, and these cases often take a year or more to resolve. Ultimately, whether or not you are approved for VA disability depends on the unique facts and circumstances of your case.
A veterans benefits lawyer serving Matthew NC can help evaluate your claim and determine the next best steps.
In general, the amount of benefits you can expect from the VA depends on your VA disability rating.
A VA disability rating is a percentage in increments of ten (e.g. 10%, 30%, 70%, etc.) that designates the extent of your disability as determined by the VA. The higher your VA disability rating, the more money you’ll receive per month in disability payments.
It’s important to get as accurate a disability rating as possible, because the difference in benefits based on your rating can be very significant. For instance, the difference between a 90% rating and a 100% rating can be more than $1,000 per month.
“My disability rating is too low. Now what?”
If you’ve received a VA disability rating that you do not believe reflects the true extent of your disabling condition, you do have options to appeal.
Our veterans disability benefits attorneys can help clients in Matthews and greater North Carolina increase their VA disability rating.
Attorney Scott Scurfield, who leads the VA disability team at Riddle & Brantley, is a VA-accredited attorney and has handled hundreds of these disability rating appeals cases. In addition to his work on VA disability, he is a Board-Certified Specialist in Social Security Disability and can assist with these cases, as well.
“By far the best law firm that actually cares about helping veterans.”
