Disability Evaluation System Military Lawyer – Dallas & San Diego Offices – World Wide Representation

Disability Evaluation System Lawyer

Whether you are in the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines, you are entitled to benefits if injured while serving your country. The military disability evaluation system will determine the benefits you receive according to the extent of your injury. A military attorney can help ensure the benefits you receive are fair.

If you have been disabled while in the military and would like experienced representation you know you can trust, contact Dallas military lawyer Patrick J. McLain.

Disability Assessment

The disability assessment process is conducted in two stages. The Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) will determine whether your injury compromises your ability to return to duty. The Physical Evaluation Board (PEB) is the authoritative body that actually decides whether you are unfit for further military service. The PEB also determines your disability rating, ranging from 0 to 100 percent disabled.

The Department of Defense and Veterans Affairs Disability Ratings

Both the Department of Defense (DOD) and Veterans Affairs (VA) evaluate a service member according to the disability evaluation system. The primary difference is that the DOD only considers the physical condition when establishing a disability rating, while the VA considers the mental condition and other effects of the disability.
