Disability Compensation Requirements

Honorable Discharge & Disease or Injury.

The first requirement a veteran must possess regards being discharged and having a disease or injury that is in some way debilitating. The discharge or release must be for reasons other than dishonorable discharge. Secondly, the disease or injury was suffered or accentuated in the line of duty. Lastly, the disease or injury was not a direct result of the veterans willful misconduct or drug abuse.

Disease or Injury During Service

The second requirement a veteran must possess in order to qualify for disability compensation is evidence that the disease or injury happened while serving. In a legal context, this requirement may be referred to as an in-service precipitating disease, injury, or event. By means of evidence, we must be able to prove that your disease or injury occurred or was aggravated while you w

ere actively serving in accordance with the standard known as “at least as likely as not”. Evidence must demonstrate that there is at least a 50% chance the disease or injury occurred or was aggravated during service.

Nexus Requirement

The last requirement a disabled veteran must possess is the existence of a connection between the disabling disease or injury and the in-service precipitating disease, injury, or event. In a legal context this connection is commonly referred to as the nexus requirement for service connection. With the assistance of your Colorado veterans disability lawyer it must be demonstrated that a service connection exists in order to achieve the most desirable outcome for your claim or appeal. This requirement is essential, as failure to show the connection to service is the most common reason disability claims are denied.
