Understanding the Most Common Disability Claims for Veterans

By Veterans Affairs Law posted on March 13, 2024

As a veteran, you've dedicated your life to serving your country. Unfortunately, the sacrifices made during your service can sometimes lead to disabilities that affect your quality of life. If you find yourself in this situation and have been denied benefits, know that you're not alone. The legal team at Veterans Affairs Law P.A. is here to help you fight for the benefits you deserve.

Here are some of the most common disability claims among veterans:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a mental health condition that can develop after experiencing a traumatic event. Many veterans experience PTSD due to their experiences during deployment. Symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety.

Musculoskeletal Injuries

Musculoskeletal injuries, such as back injuries and joint pain, are common among veterans, often due to the physical demands of military service. These injuries can be debilitating and may require ongoing medical treatment.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

TBI is a common injury among veterans, particularly those who have been exposed to blasts or other traumatic events. TBI can lead to a range of symptoms, including headaches, memory loss, and difficulty concentrating.

Hearing Loss and Tinnitus

Exposure to loud noises, such as explosions and gunfire, can lead to hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) among veterans. These conditions can significantly impact your quality of life.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain, often related to musculoskeletal injuries, is a common complaint among veterans. Managing chronic pain can be challenging and may require ongoing medical care.

Depression and Anxiety

Many veterans experience depression and anxiety due to the stress of military service and the challenges of transitioning back to civilian life. These mental health conditions can be debilitating and may require treatment.
