If you are a Kentucky resident who served in the U.S. military and became injured or ill, you may be eligible to receive disability benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs. If approved for VA disability, veterans receive a monetary monthly benefit along with access to other VA resources. Unfortunately, the application process for disability benefits can be challenging, even for veterans with diagnosed disabilities caused by service that severely impact their lives. If VA denies your veterans benefits, a veterans disability lawyer serving Kentucky can help you appeal this decision.

The Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD team serves veterans all over Kentucky. We want to help you fight for the VA benefits to which you are rightfully entitled. We offer a free initial case evaluation. Call 800-544-9144 today to speak with a member of our team.

The Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD VA Disability Legal Team Serves Kentucky Veterans

Starting with your free initial case evaluation, the Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD team is dedicated to fighting for you. We want to see to it that VA properly compensates you for the disabilities you have as a result of the sacrifices you made on behalf of our country.

Our team has fought and won VA disability for many of our clients. We know what it takes to put together a winning appeal. In order to receive a grant of VA disability benefits, we must show that you have a diagnosed disabling condition that was incurred during or caused by your military service.

You Have a Diagnosed Condition That Limits Your Functional Capacity

VA grants disability benefits to veterans whose conditions were incurred during or due to service and that limit their functionality to some degree. Limited functionality might refer to your ability to work or to your ability to carry out daily living activities, such as eating, bathing, and toileting. In general, the more severe your condition, the higher your disability rating, and thus the higher your benefit amount.

An Event in Your Military Service Caused Your Condition

In addition to providing evidence of a currently diagnosed condition, we must identify the illness, injury, or event during service and successfully argue that this event caused your current diagnosis. The event could be combat or a training mission or something such as a vehicle accident or even a gym mishap. What is most important is that we can provide evidence of a nexus, or link, between the in-service event and your current, diagnosed condition. This evidence could include your military and medical records or a professional medical opinion.

The VA Rating System

The monetary benefit amount of your VA disability depends on the severity of your condition, and our team puts great effort into gathering evidence and building an appeal that conveys the full extent of your disability. The difference in a combined VA disability rating of 10% and 100% amounts to several thousand dollars per month in benefits. We want to help you get every dollar you deserve.

If You Cannot Work Because of Your Service-Connected Condition, Ask Us About TDIU

VA has a special disability benefit that offers compensation at the 100% rate to veterans who cannot work because of their service-connected condition(s) but whose combined disability rating is not 100%. This benefit, known as Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU), pays the maximum schedular monthly compensation even if your combined disability rating is not 100%. For TDIU approval, we must prove that you are unemployable due to your service-connected disabilities.

We Fight For Your TDIU Benefits

If you applied for TDIU and were denied, we will gather evidence and put together a thorough, compelling appeal that shows VA that you are unemployable based on your service-connected condition(s).
