Veterans’ Benefits Attorneys in Sarasota, FL - Veteran stressed

Sarasota, FL Veterans’ Benefits

United States Veterans are the bedrock of our nation; they put their lives at risk to serve our country. While leaders of all stripes never hesitate to pay homage to veterans, veterans’ lives are not always easy after they return home.

Veterans suffer disproportionately from a variety of serious medical issues, including PTSD, depression, chronic pain, and other health problems. Furthermore, in spite of their service, the government may fail to meet their obligations for providing care.

There are over 1.5 million veterans in Florida, and nearly 43 thousand in Sarasota County alone — too many of them don’t get the help they need. The Sarasota Morgan & Morgan team recognizes the sacrifice that veterans have made and is dedicated to helping them recover the benefits they deserve.

  • Veterans’ Disability Benefits

    While all U.S. veterans qualify for certain benefits, some are more difficult to obtain than others. For example, if a veteran suffers a disability as the result of their service, the VA has some very specific requirements that must be met in order for disability payments to be paid. These include:

    • Veterans must prove they suffer from a fully- or partially-disabling disease or condition resulting from their military service
    • This service-connected disability prevents the veteran from holding down a financially stable job

    If the disabling injury came directly in the line of duty, this is fairly straightforward. However, if the disability came as the result of radiation, exposure to chemicals, or later in life (PTSD), it can be more difficult to prove.

    The Morgan & Morgan Sarasota team has the resources to help veterans whose disability benefits have been wrongfully denied. If you think your benefits were denied unfairly, fill out our free, no-obligation case evaluation form

  • The Rating and Appeal Process

    Unlike Social Security, a veteran can qualify for payments by proving a partial rather than complete disability. The formula to determine eligibility can be complex, however. A disabled veteran must have one service-related disability determined to be 60% or more disabling, or two service-related disabilities determined to be 70% or more disabling when combined. In the latter case, at least one of these disabilities must be rated 40% disabling or more.

    Proving disabilities at these percentages can be difficult. And if the government assigns you with a lower level of disability than you believe is accurate, that can disqualify you from getting the benefits you deserve. An experienced Morgan & Morgan veterans’ benefits attorney can help you appeal your case and improve your chance of success.
