Have you been denied benefits? Is your VA disability claim sitting in limbo, and nothing seems to be getting done? The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs statistics show a backlog of over 100,000 applications – and not including appeals! – so it’s not surprising that most veterans have questions about their disability claim and why it’s taking so long to be approved.

VA disability claims

Truthfully, the claims process can be painful and confusing. We know because we’ve been there. Veterans often receive claim denials with cited code sections that are hard to understand.

At Vetus Legal, we believe disabled veterans deserve the benefits they’ve been promised. You applied for them, gave your time, and risked your life, so don’t let anyone stand in the way of getting what’s rightfully yours.


VA offers disability benefits to veterans affected by an illness or injury related to their military service. To apply for these benefits, you must currently have an illness or injury affecting your mind or body and have served in the military or active or inactive duty training for the required period. Additionally, the VA requires a better-than-dishonorable discharge (or, if Other than Honorable, VA must deem it to be not dishonorable).

You’ve served our country proudly, and now it’s time to receive the benefits you deserve. But getting those benefits can be easier said than done. If you’re having trouble claiming your benefits or have questions about whether you meet the qualifications, it’s important that you reach out to a qualified VA disability compensation attorney. Get a free case evaluation today to discuss your rights and options.
