KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – Disabled veterans of the United States Armed Forces can apply for disability compensation, or monetary benefits paid to veterans with injuries or illness from a time of active military service. These disabilities are considered to be service-connected, or service-related, and while you can apply on your own, your chances of receiving the maximum compensation for your disability improve with the help of a veterans disability lawyer.

This claim for veterans benefits is evaluated by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), which determines whether a veteran can get compensated for injury or illness that happened or was worsened during military service. 

Typically, the process includes gathering all of your military, medical, and other records associated with your injury or illness to create your application for disability benefits. You’ll want to be sure to gather your private medical records, too. For each claimed disability, be sure to have as much evidence possible so that you can receive the maximum benefits possible. The process is complicated and not always pleasant to navigate. That’s why Wettermark Keith wants to support you through the entire process, ensuring that your application is full and compelling. They work to get you the veterans benefits you deserve, regardless of the disability you’re experiencing. Whether you’re applying for the first time, you’ve applied before and have been denied, or are applying on behalf of a loved one who lost their life, they are there to help make sure you are awarded the benefits you need to live your life to the fullest.
