South Carolina Veterans’ Disability Benefits Lawyers
Centrally located in Columbia, South Carolina, at Strom Law Firm, LLC, we help injured veterans throughout South Carolina to appeal or change disability ratings that are too low.
In many ways, disabled veteran’s benefits involve issues and challenges that are very similar to those we experience in helping non-veterans apply for and obtain Social Security disability benefits.
Unlike many actual disabilities, disability ratings determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs are not permanent. If you think that an initial disability rating given to you by the VA is too low, there are steps you can take to appeal the decision and have it changed. Likewise, there is also a process in place to address the needs of disabled veterans whose disabilities have grown worse over time.
Establishing a Claim for Veteran’s Benefits:
To be entitled to service-connected benefits, a veteran must prove that his disability was the result of military service or medical treatment by the VA hospital and was not the result of his own willful misconduct.
To learn more about the VA disability process, contact Strom Law Firm’s South Carolina Veteran’s Disability lawyers. The veterans administration benefit attorneys at The Strom Law Firm, LLC can provide you with representation and services needed to deal with either of these situations. This may include a careful analysis of reports from your initial disability evaluation, gathering documentation from new medical providers and healthcare experts, and using other resources as needed to prove that a change in your rating is warranted.
To talk about your veterans’ disability benefits, your current disability rating, or what our lawyers can accomplish for you contact us today for a free consultation.
