If your service-connected disability or disabilities result in your inability to work, you are entitled to compensation at the 100 percent disability rate from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. Regardless of what rating the VA gave you previously, if you are unable to work, we encourage you to contact a veterans claims lawyer with experience handling veterans’ benefits claims and appeals.
Our clients have an advantage in individual unemployability claims, thanks to the medical and vocational experts with whom we regularly work and incorporate their medical and vocational opinions to help strengthen their claims. In contrast, the VA does not normally employ vocational experts as they build their case for denial of a total disability rating based on individual unemployability.
VetLaw has helped many veterans who are unable to work obtain total disability ratings from VA. We are prepared to aggressively advocate on your behalf at any level of the VA claims or appeals process to assist you in obtaining the 100 percent rating.
A designation of individual unemployability allows a veteran to bypass the normal process of obtaining a 100 percent disability rating when chronic unemployability is a reality as a result of a service-connected disability or a combination of multiple service-connected disabilities.
Our law firm is dedicated to helping injured and disabled veterans maximize their benefits by obtaining disability compensation and other benefits from all available sources. Some of our clients collect Social Security Disability benefits (SSD) and/or workers’ compensation benefits in addition to receiving veterans’ benefits. Allow us to review your case and determine whether you have a case for obtaining a total disability rating based on individual unemployability due to your inability to work.
We are prepared to advise you on the most likely routes to a successful claim or appeal for a total disability rating based on individual unemployability, so that you can receive a 100 percent rating if you are unable to work.
