Disabled Veterans Benefits & Services
Veteran Service-Connected Disability claims are administered by the Department of Veteran Affairs, and largely outside the typical legal process. Veteran Service-Connected Disability Claims are based on specific requirements established by VA regulations and laws enacted by Congress. Veteran Claims are their own unique world, and lawyers assisting veterans with such claims must understand the laws, rules, and processes to pursue and establish a claim.
Mesch Clark Rothschild understands and is uniquely knowledgeable in issues that are involved with Veteran Service-Connected Disability claims, including:
- Whether the claimant is an eligible “veteran”
- The necessary evidence of current disability
- The necessary evidence of in-service occurrence or aggravation of a disease or injury
- The necessary proof of a nexus between in-service occurrence and aggravation and current disability
- The necessary proof of the claimant’s degree of disability
- When presumptions of service-connection apply
- The significant distinction between original claims and re-opened claims
Countless legal issues affect a Veteran Service-Connected Disability claim. Veteran Service-Connected Disability claims are difficult and time consuming. MCR’s understanding of this unique process, the applicable law, and how to navigate within the VA enhances the odds of a successful claim for those brave men and women who served their country and incurred injuries in service.
