Crown Point VA Disability Lawyer

In an effort to recognize the enormous sacrifices made by veterans across the country, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers qualifying veterans a variety of benefits and services ranging from healthcare and job training to disability compensation and educational assistance.

To learn more about these benefits, please contact an experienced veterans disability attorney who is well-versed in both state and federal law and can address your questions and concerns. 

Disability Compensation

In addition to offering healthcare services to discharged service members and their family members, the VA also offers monthly disability compensation payments to veterans who have a disability rating for a service-connected condition and who also served on active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty training and who:

  • Suffered an injury or illness while serving in the military and can provide evidence linking the physical or mental condition to their time in the service; or
  • Suffered from a preexisting injury or illness that was worsened by their time in the service; or
  • Currently suffer from a service-connected disability that did not manifest until their discharge. 

These tax-free disability compensation payments can be used to cover medical expenses, housing costs, educational expenses, or lost wages, all of which can play an instrumental role in helping veterans and their families adjust to civilian life. 

Housing and Vehicle Modifications

Some disabilities are so severe that they require modifications to the affected person’s home or vehicle. Fortunately, the VA offers monetary assistance to veterans with service-connected physical disabilities to help them renovate their homes. Qualifying renovations include modifications to:

  • Ramps, walkways, and covered porches;
  • Security items;
  • Sliding doors, grab bars, and handrails;
  • Doors, flooring materials, and windows;
  • Concrete and asphalt walkways;
  • Bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchens; and
  • Passageways, garages, and carports. 

To be eligible for these types of renovations, veterans must be able to prove that they have a permanent and total service-connected disability that involves:

  • The loss of or the loss of use of both legs or arms;
  • Blindness in both eyes or only light perception;
  • Severe burns; or
  • Severe respiratory conditions. 

Those with these types of injuries can receive monetary assistance when it comes to paying for platform wheelchair lifts, power door openers, hand controls, digital driving systems, zero effort steering and braking systems, raised roofs and doors, lowered floors, and left foot gas pedals. 

Indiana Law

Indiana also provides its own benefits to disabled veterans, some of which include, property tax abatement, employment assistance, and remission of tuition for the children of disabled veterans at certain universities. For help determining whether you qualify for these, or federal benefits, please contact our VA disability legal team today.
