Service-Connected Disability and Non-Service Disabilities
Former military members suffering from debilitating physical conditions are also eligible for certain disability benefits. If an injury or illness is demonstrably connected to a veteran’s time in the military, the veteran is entitled to a range of benefits. Veterans whose medical conditions are not directly service-related cannot access the same benefit structure. However, there is a pension available for non-service-related disabilities.
At The Piemonte Law Firm, our North Carolina attorney is skilled in assisting veterans to obtain the full benefits they deserve. Our access to medical experts and deep understanding of how to put together medical evidence help us craft a compelling case for each of our clients.
Disability benefits can provide medical care options that you may not be able to access otherwise. Further disability benefits may assist with living expenses for individuals who cannot maintain employment.
When your disability is related to your military service, you have access to a wide range of treatments and benefits. Your disability compensation is directly correlated with the seriousness of your condition. Our firm is skilled in accurately depicting the level of discomfort you are experiencing.
The VA offers a disability pension for veterans whose disability is not service related. This pension is available to both war veterans and their spouses.
