Making a Military Injury Claim: FAQs

  • Spinal cord injuries

A specialised lawyer can assist in the medical treatment and rehabilitation of service-related injuries by providing guidance on the available medical benefits and resources for military personnel and veterans. They can also work with medical professionals to ensure that the client receives the appropriate treatment and care for their injuries.

Additionally, the lawyer can help the client obtain disability benefits, compensation for lost wages, and other forms of financial support to aid in their recovery and rehabilitation.

What is PTSD and how can it affect military injury claims?

PTSD stands for post-traumatic stress disorder and is a mental health condition that can develop after someone experiences or witnesses a traumatic event. In the context of military injury claims, PTSD is a common condition among service members who have experienced combat or other traumatic events during their service.

PTSD can affect a military injury claim in several ways, including:

  1. Establishing a causal link: In order to establish a causal link between a service-related event and a PTSD diagnosis, specialised legal representation is required.
  2. Proving disability: PTSD can be a disabling condition, and an expert solicitor can help prove the extent of disability resulting from PTSD to obtain maximum compensation.
  3. Treatment and rehabilitation: Specialised lawyers can also help ensure that service members receive proper treatment and rehabilitation for PTSD as part of their injury claim.

There are several VA benefits and disability ratings available for veterans with service-related injuries:

  1. Disability Compensation: A tax-free financial benefit provided to veterans with injuries or illnesses that occurred during active military service. The amount of compensation depends on the severity of the injury and how much it affects the veteran’s ability to work.
  2. Special Monthly Compensation: Additional compensation paid to veterans with severe disabilities, such as loss of limbs or blindness, who need assistance with daily living activities.
  3. Dependency and Indemnity Compensation: A tax-free monetary benefit paid to eligible survivors of veterans who died in the line of duty.
  4. Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment: A program that helps veterans with service-related disabilities find and maintain employment.

Note that the amount and type of benefits awarded depend on the severity and nature of the injury.

In addition to the benefits mentioned above, veterans may also be eligible for healthcare, education and training, and home loan assistance.
