Legal Counsel For Pursuing Veterans Disability Benefits
Veterans and family members who obtain a disability due to injuries or diseases may be eligible for veterans benefits. If the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) denies your veterans disability benefits application, our attorneys at Gardberg & Kemmerly, P.C. Attorneys at Law, can help you appeal your claim to seek the support you need.
Veterans Disability Benefits Cases We Handle
Need any of the following? We can help:
- Service-connected disability: If you suffered an injury while serving, you could seek service-connected disability compensation. You can use these payments to support both you and your family financially. These benefits can cover both physical and mental injuries.
- Nonservice-connected pension: Veterans who served during wartime can receive monthly income for them and their families from a specific VA pension if they have a disability. While your disability doesn’t have to stem from wartime service, there are certain financial requirements you must meet.
- Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC): This benefit is for spouses, children and dependent parents of service members who die while serving. That also includes service members who die due to injuries or diseases related to their time in the military.
- Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU): You may qualify for these benefits if you developed a disability through your military service and it prevents you from working a civilian job.
These benefits are often crucial for veterans in need of financial support. However, insufficient applications and lack of evidence can result in a denied claim. If the VA recently rejected your application, call us at 251-243-7872.
How Long Do You Have To Appeal Your Veterans Disability Benefits?
You must appeal your VA benefits within one year after your rejection. However, there are some benefits where you have less than one year to appeal. We can help you figure out the next steps and how to proceed.
