Veterans Disability Benefits for Military Service Injuries

Service members who suffer injury in the course of military duty are entitled to disability compensation, medical care and other benefits. Service-related disabilities may be physical impairments, psychological disorders, serious illness or a combination of conditions.

Veterans disability is a complex area of law, and many claimants are either denied outright or inaccurately assessed when the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) determines their disability rating. The Berry Law Firm aggressively represents veterans nationwide in all types of VA claims. Contact our military disability claims attorneys for a free consultation.
