Charlotte Veterans Disability Benefits
In order to become eligible for veterans disability, you must meet a list of certain requirements. But what are they?
Although there is some fluidity between cases, basic requirements exist. The VA maintains the same requirements for veterans’ disability benefits in Charlotte, NC for all injury and disease types including neck and back injuries. They include:
- An injury or disease directly related to active military service
- An illness or disability currently existing while you are applying for veterans disability benefits
- A connection between the disability and the incident
Establishing a connection with the client’s back or neck pain and the term of military service is the most difficult part of any case. However, Piemonte Law Firm leverages every bit of skill and experience to get you the benefits you need and deserve.
Note that only recipients of an honorable or general military discharge are eligible for benefits. People who leave the military with a dishonorable discharge do not qualify.
