Whether your conditions are physical or mental, we can assist you. Common conditions that qualify for VA benefits include (among others):
Traumatic brain injury

Loss of limb or extremity
Back and spinal injuries
Gulf war syndrome
Knee leg and arm injuries
Tropical diseases such as dysentery and malaria
Gunshot and shrapnel wounds
Illnesses from exposure to toxic chemicals or uranium
Please note that this list is not exhaustive and many other conditions may qualify for benefits.
To prove a disability is service related, a vetran must prove the following:
You must meet the service requirement which can typically be proven by your DD214. You will also have to have a discharge that is other than dishonorable.
You must have an illness, injury, or aggravation that happened while you were in service.
You must still be suffering from the illness, injury, or conditions and it must be chronic (long lasting).
There must be medical evidence of a causative link or nexus between your disabling condition and your service.
The VA will review an application for service related benefits through the Regional Office (RO). The amount of the benefit is based on the VA's decision of how disabled a Vet is on a scale of 10% to 100%. These amounts can vary from $142.00 per month up to $3,684.00 per month depending on your rating and the number and type of dependents you have. VA service related disability benefits are tax free and individuals can receive both VA benefits and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time without any offset to either benefit.
