LEGAL HELP FOR VETERANS SEEKING DISABILITY BENEFITS
If you are a veteran who has served in the U.S. Armed Forces, you may be
able to obtain disability benefits if you have an injury or illness that
came about during your period of active duty. You may also be able to
obtain these benefits if you had a pre-existing condition that was made
worse by your active military service, or if it was made worse by medical
treatment that you received from the Veterans' Administration (VA).
Unfortunately, the process of applying for these benefits is not always
an easy proposition. Disability claims require extensive paperwork, including
medical records and service records, and even then they are frequently
denied. However, you may have a much stronger chance of successfully filing

QUALIFICATIONS FOR VETERANS BENEFITS
A person who is seeking veterans' benefits must first be recognized
as a "veteran" in the first place. This is defined by the VA
as an individual who actively served in the military, air, or naval services,
and was discharged in a manner other than dishonorable. If the person
qualifies as a veteran under the VA's definition, they must meet three
conditions in order to receive disability benefits:
- They must have a current disability that has been formally diagnosed by
a licensed medical practitioner
- They must have been injured or made ill while actively serving in the armed forces
- Their current disability must qualify as "service connected,"
meaning that the disability is related to their time in active duty
