How do I get the VA to pay for disabilities?

VA Compensation Benefits may be paid to an eligible veteran who has a disabling physical or mental condition that was incurred or aggravated during military service. The degrees of disability is determined by the VA and represent, as far as can practicably be determined, the average loss in wages resulting from such diseases and injuries and their complications in civil occupations. Generally, the degrees of disability specified are also designed to compensate for considerable loss of working time from exacerbations or illnesses. You should contact your County Veterans Services Office.
