Before you can get started with getting the compensation you need as a disabled veteran, you must first learn more about the types of claims you can file. In this article, we are going to discuss some of the basic claim types you can pursue.
PTSD or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is the most common disorder experienced by veterans, especially after long tours dealing with military conflicts. PTSD is recognized as a disability and you can file for a claim to get the financial support you need for getting proper treatments.
The Veterans Affairs also provides death benefit for qualified family members, but most of the time you will have to supply the necessary documents to support your claim. Having an experienced attorney assisting you every step of the way will help you get the financial support needed to keep your family safe.
Aside from psychiatric disabilities, you can also file for a claim against in-service assaults and bodily injuries. Similar to the claim for death benefit, proper set of evidence and supporting documents are needed. Again, having a qualified and experienced attorney will make the process much easier to complete.
There are other claims that you can file in order to get the financial support you need, but we are going to discuss them in another part.
