The Law Offices of Michael Hartup represents veterans in service-connected disability compensation claims against the VA.
Veterans may be entitled to service-connected disability compensation if they were discharged or released from military service under conditions other than dishonorable; their disease or injury was caused or aggravated in the line of duty; and the disability was not a result of their own willful misconduct or abuse of alcohol and drugs.
Disability compensation benefits for a single veteran range from $133 a month to as much as $2915 for a disability rated at 100%.
Disabled veterans that suffer certain severe disabilities may be entitled to special monthly compensation that can provide compensation benefits at a rate higher than the 100% rate. Disabled veterans in need of regular aid and attendance or daily healthcare services may also be eligible for additional compensation. Disabled veterans may also receive additional monthly compensation if they are married and/or have children or other parental dependents.
The Law Offices of Michael Hartup assists veterans with filing their claim for service connected disability compensation benefits and will represent veterans who have been denied benefits on appeal.
