Knee, Leg and Arm Injuries

Knee, Leg and Arm Injuries

Veterans who suffered injuries to the extremities during their military service may be entitled to disability benefits for a catastrophic or cumulative trauma injury to the arms or legs.

What Limb Injuries Qualify for VA Disability

Injuries to the limbs and joints may involve:

An accident with enough force can result in trauma to the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Overuse and repetitive motions can cause cumulative trauma injuries to these soft tissues as well. A separate claim is required for these types of injuries.

Cumulative trauma injuries may also affect the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, and ankles. Repetitive motions such as lifting or carrying heavy items, walking on uneven surfaces, or operating machinery can cause these types of injuries. A cumulative trauma injury can cause pain, tingling, burning, discomfort, numbness, or reduced range of motion that may be significant enough to prevent you from performing work or daily tasks.
