5 Easy Tips For Veterans Applying for Disability Benefits

Applying for disability benefits as a veteran is often much more difficult than it should be. After all, you have put in your years of service and have walked away with a considerable toll on your body as a result. You therefore deserve the most disability benefits possible. The problem is that actually receiving disability benefits can be an arduous process, even for veterans.

Fortunately, the Disparti Law Group Accident & Injury Lawyers is well versed in pursuing such claims, and we want to be the ones to help you. We also want to add that just because you’ve been previously denied does not mean that your claim is over. By following these five easy tips, you can better your chances of receiving full disability benefits.

Approach with the Right Attitude

More often than not, injured veterans have a difficult time applying for disability benefits because they are nervous or have been denied before. These should not, however, be the reasons you delay your disability claim. You do have the power to claim the disability benefits you deserve, but you have to be diligent and positive about your condition. Think about it this way: after years of military service, dealing with the VA should be a piece of cake.

Collect Evidence

If your disability was the result of the military, you will need some evidence in order to convince aid boards. The type of evidence you must have, however, needs to be airtight and credible, showing a clear relationship between your service record and injury, including medical documents and other correspondences. Far too many veterans each year are denied disability benefits because they hid their condition for too long or were not forthright enough when coming forward. Being open and honest will therefore go a long way when presenting your evidence.

Read Everything Carefully

Filing for disability benefits is made even more complicated by the amount of paperwork involved. That being said, it really is critically important that you read all necessary forms as carefully as possible. You will find that there is a lot of useful information available to you if you take the time out to thoroughly read your documents, which will make getting full disability benefits later much easier. The same goes for any correspondences you receive from the VA or other medical and insurance personnel.

Attend All Appointments

Not only is attending your scheduled appointments good etiquette, but it’s also absolutely necessary if you hope to receive disability benefits. Many veterans don’t get another chance to explain their side of the story when they miss an appointment, making the process a lot more one sided—and not in your favor.

Hire a Disability Benefits Attorney

At the end of the day, the single best way to ensure that you receive full disability benefits is to hire a professional disability benefits attorney to help you out. The Disparti Law Group Accident & Injury Lawyers has been handling such cases in the greater Chicago area for years, and we would like to be the ones to handle your disability claim.
