You enlisted in the military to serve your country. You took on risk to yourself to protect your fellow American citizens.
If you got injured in the line of duty, our government should protect your well-being, like you protected others.
But sometimes getting full disability support is more of a struggle than it should be. Veterans with service-connected ailments are left on their own without assistance to pay bills and maintain financial stability.
Your disability rating from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) may not reflect the full extent of your impairments and qualify you for the level of benefits you really need.
Where can you turn to change it?
The Columbus veterans’ disability lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal can help. They fight to get you the financial security you deserve.

When you file a claim with the VA for compensation for your disability benefits, your disability rating will determine how much compensation you receive every month.
For instance, if you receive a 100 percent disability rating, you could receive more than $3,000 per month in benefits. That could be life-changing, putting you on solid financial ground as you move forward with your life.
But if your disability rating is too low, the amount you receive may not be enough to cover even basic expenses.
Here’s how a Columbus veterans’ disability lawyer can prove that you need a higher rating:
Even if you don’t have a 100 percent disability rating, you could still increase your rate of disability compensation if you can’t work due to your service-related injury or illness.
In that case, you may qualify for Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) status.
The VA uses a complex formula to determine which level of benefits you’ll receive. Trying to navigate their system is confusing.
