Veterans Disability Lawyers in North Carolina

Helping Clients Recover Veterans Disability Compensation

Military service members put their lives on the line for our country—and many sustain life-changing injuries and health conditions in doing so. While veterans with disabilities often qualify for compensation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the road to obtaining this compensation can be long and winding.

If you plan to file for veterans disability benefits, you do not have to go at it alone. A VA disability lawyer will work to expedite the process and get you the benefits you deserve.

How Lanier Law Group, P.A. Can Help

Here at Lanier Law Group, P.A., we support and care about our veterans. We have veteran service members on our staff and attorneys who are ready to fight for your disability compensation from the VA. If you have applied for benefits and been denied, we will assist you through the appeals process.

Unfortunately, the VA can deny claims over something as simple as using the wrong form. Our lawyers can assist in the organization of your claim, as well as help you navigate any pitfalls to get you the disability compensation that you need. We have helped myriad veterans collect the disability benefits to which they are entitled, and we want to help you, too.

Qualifying for Veterans Disability Benefits

Veterans disability benefits is one of the many programs operated by the VA to support veterans upon their return to civilian life. In any VA case for disability compensation, you must show that you have been discharged in conditions other than dishonorable. Next, you must show that you have a disability or impairment that was aggravated or caused during service. Then, you must have medical records and other evidence that support a finding for disability.

A few common injuries and health conditions that qualify for VA disability benefits include:

  • Ulcers
  • Scar tissue
  • Hearing loss
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Loss of range of motion
  • Cancers from toxic exposure
  • Respiratory/breathing problems
  • Chronic back pain that resulted in a back disability

This is not a complete list. To find out if your disability qualifies you for benefits, reach out to a VA disability attorney.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
