“Do I qualify for veterans disability benefits?”
In order to qualify for VA disability benefits, you must meet stringent criteria established by the VA. These criteria include:
- You must have served in active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty for training
- You must have suffered an injury or illness that is “service-related” that ultimately led to your disability
- You must have received a discharge other than dishonorable
In addition to the criteria above, you must also provide evidence of your disabling condition and its connection to your military service. This includes:
- Medical evidence of your disability, in the form of a “Compensation & Pension” exam (“C&P” exam) by a military doctor
- Evidence that your disability was the result of an injury or illness incurred in the course of your military service
In addition to medical records and military service records, the testimony of military personnel that you served with, friends and family members can be important in proving your case for VA disability.
A veterans benefits lawyer with experience serving clients in Sanford NC can help evaluate your claim and determine the best steps for seeking benefits or a higher VA disability rating.

Here’s what the research shows:
- Just 24 percent of appeals were won by those who were not represented by an attorney or other advocate
- Roughly 40 percent of appeals were won by those who were represented by a VA disability lawyer
That’s a significant difference. You don’t want to gamble with the benefits you may deserve.
