How an Attorney Can Help You Get Veterans Disability
August 15th, 2017|
At Norris Injury Lawyers, we’re dedicated to fighting for the rights of people who served our country and suffered injuries during their service.
Veterans are supposed to be eligible for benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), but their claims are often reduced or denied. When veterans attempt to appeal the decision, they may face red tape, making it difficult for them to get the money they deserve.
Having an experienced Birmingham Veterans Disability lawyer on your side can help improve your chances of successfully appealing the VA’s decision by:
- Collecting required documents – Proving a service-related injury requires a lot of paperwork, and if documents are missing, appeals may be disqualified. Our legal team will collect the necessary medical evidence, discharge and separation papers, dependency records, and employment history needed to support your claim.
- Submitting accurate paperwork on time – In addition to making sure you have the required documents, we’ll also make sure all paperwork concerning your injury is complete, accurate, and submitted on time. Our knowledge of the VA and the benefits system means we can make sure your claim ends up in the right hands.
Filing an appeal isn’t limited to people whose initial application was denied. You can also file an appeal if you believe your disability rating is too low for the injuries you suffered.
