Legal Assistance Is The Best Option For A Veteran That Was Denied Benefits

Published on October 27th, 2017

The wait time for a veteran to find out if a decision has been made his or her claim for service-connected benefits is getting longer by the day – six months is considered fast. If the claim is denied, and many are, then the local appeal can take another year before it is passed on to the Board of Veterans Appeals. This is not the end of the wait, look for another couple of months before they act.

Veterans that appeal their denial of benefits themselves are at a disadvantage, only a veterans’ benefits attorney in Ohio knows and thoroughly understands the regulations and laws that apply.

Improve your chance of early approval:

There are numerous agencies that can provide the veteran with some guidance but those that have hired a veterans benefits attorney have the lowest denial rate once the case reaches the Board of Veterans Affairs.

The benefits of having legal representation:

Veterans that go before the BVA accompanied by an attorney have a far better chance of winning benefits on appeal. With qualified legal assistance, your attorney:

  • Advocates on your behalf, responds to any and all questions you may have regarding your claim, and helps you gather the evidence that is needed to substantiate your claim.
  • Analyzes your claim and determines the best route to follow to ensure that you get all the benefits that are yours; those that you are aware of and those you don’t even know exist.

Although the claims process is extremely complicated, the VA must assess a claim sympathetically. Claimants that are represented by a seasoned veterans benefits attorney in Ohio are positioned to take full advantage of this situation.
