Justice for Veterans
The VA system is vast and complex. It can take more than a year, or even more than two years, for veterans disability claims and appeals to work their way through the system.
Often, the VA does not award an appropriate disability rating and veterans lose out on the benefits they are entitled to.
Our veterans benefits lawyers have experience serving veterans in Mooresville and the surrounding Charlotte area and we would love to help however we can.
We can assist with appealing a denial or increasing your VA disability rating.

There is never any obligation and you only pay attorney fees if we win your case and you receive VA disability benefits.
Call 1-800-525-7111 today and let’s review your case. You may be entitled to veterans disability benefits or a higher VA disability rating.
“Do I qualify for veterans disability?”
VA disability benefits are available to U.S. veterans who meet the following criteria established by the Department of Veterans Affairs:
- Must have served in active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty for training
- Must have been at least partially disabled due to an injury or illness incurred during service
- Must have received an honorable or general discharge (not dishonorable)
In addition, veterans seeking VA disability must establish:
- Medical evidence of their disability in the form of a “Compensation & Pension” exam / “C&P” exam
- Evidence that their disability was caused by an injury or illness incurred during their military service
Medical records, military service records, and even personal testimony can all be used to support a veteran’s claim for VA disability payments. An experienced veterans benefits attorney serving Mooresville and Charlotte can help identify the best possible evidence to support your appeal.
“Am I eligible for VA disability for a mental disorder?”
Certain mental disorders may qualify for VA disability compensation. These include:
- Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders
- Dementia, delirium and other cognitive disorders like amnesia
- Anxiety disorders
- Dissociative disorders
- Somatoform disorders
- Mood disorders like bipolar disorder
- Chronic adjustment disorder
- Eating disorders
VA disability payments are also available for veterans who have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Claims for mental disorders such as PTSD can be difficult to pursue, and it’s recommended that you consult with a veterans benefits lawyer serving Mooresville NC.

“How much am I entitled to?”
The amount of money you receive each month depends on the VA disability rating you are assigned. This rating is a percentage in increments of 10 (e.g. “10%,” “20%,” “80%,” etc.) that reflects the VA’s estimation of the extent of your disability.
According to the VA’s compensation tables, for example:
- A veteran with a 10% disability rating qualifies for $142.29 in monthly payments
- A veteran with a 60% disability rating qualifies for $1,131.68 in monthly payments
- A veteran with a 100% disability rating qualifies for $3,106.04 in monthly payments
These amounts may be increased depending on other factors, such as if you have dependent children or are married.
