A disability lawyer for veterans will help them seek the benefits and compensation for their services rendered and disabilities incurred while on duty. The strict guidelines set by the USDVA and, at times, procedural lapses when it comes to handling their applications and requests, have left veterans disappointed and without any financial aid to support them. If the government cannot give them the compensation for defending their country, then who will support them? Disability Compensation is a tax-free benefit paid to veterans on a monthly basis—for veterans who are at least 10% disabled during active duty, active duty for training or inactive during training. These disabilities do apply to physical conditions and mental health-related ones such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and victims of chemical warfare—soldiers who have fought in Vietnam and had been exposed to Agent Orange. Those who were discharged under other than dishonorable conditions are eligible for compensation.
