Disabled Veterans Deserve Effective Representation
Veterans who have served our country honorably often find themselves in need of financial assistance due to a disability. Those who have suffered a disability while serving deserve to be compensated for their reduced ability to work. This disability can either be physical or one involving mental health, such as those who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, better known as PTSD.
Attorney Ralph W. Ellis is committed to helping disabled veterans with their claims for benefits. From his office in Atlanta, Georgia, he works with veterans who may face resistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs to rate their disability at an appropriate level.
Helping You To Get The Compensation You Deserve
In order to collect veterans’ disability compensation, a veteran must have a disability rating of at least 10 percent. The disability rating is measured in 10-percent increments, so a veteran could be rated anywhere from 10 percent to 100 percent disabled (or not disabled at all). The VA’s rating might be considerably lower than what the veteran expects it to be, which could create a wide gap between the amount he or she expects to receive and what is authorized to be paid out.
A lawyer familiar with veterans’ benefits, such as Mr. Ellis, can fight for the compensation his clients deserve so they are able to resolve this issue and go on with their lives.
Many disabled veterans might be eligible for workers’ compensation and/or Social Security Disability benefits in addition to veterans’ benefits. Consult with Ralph W. Ellis to help determine your eligibility.
