Types of Disabling Injuries

Atlanta Veteran's Disability Attorney

As veterans disability is paid according to the percentage of disability, ranging from 0% to 100%, the types of injuries that can be a part of a claim are many. Different types of injuries cause different amounts or degrees of disability. A knee injury will not be as devastating as a loss of limb, but it will nevertheless impact a veteran's mobility and this can, in turn, affect many other aspects of life.

A back injury can cause persistent pain that can make it difficult to work. A serious spinal cord injury can result in partial or full paralysis of limbs or organs. Eye injuries can result in partial or complete blindness.
