When you joined the military it was likely because you loved and wished to serve your country. If you were injured during your service and are unable to work, then it is your country’s responsibility to provide financial support. Unfortunately, the VA often makes mistakes and assigns to veterans who apply for disability benefits a lower rating than is warranted. Our attorneys routinely assists veterans in appealing the VA’s decision to deny benefits to deserving veterans. Contact our lawyers to schedule a consultation.
Atlanta based federal employment lawyers representing veterans in disability benefit appeals
Many veterans incorrectly assume that if they have sustained a physical injury while on active duty then obtaining disability benefits is as simple as filling out the application. The truth is that errors or omissions on the application frequently lead to a lower than deserved rating by the VA. While many veterans are disappointed by this, our attorneys have been able to assist in winning disability benefits on appeal. Our office routinely assists veterans who have suffered:
- Spinal Cord injury
- Eye Injuries
- Burn Injuries
- Physical disfigurement
- Damage to internal organs
Our attorneys will assist in acquiring the documentation necessary to prove that one’s injuries have significantly impaired one’s ability to work. During your initial consultation, we will review the rating the VA has assigned you, discuss with you the details of your injury, and determine if you have a case to appeal. We will advise you on what documentation you will need, ensure that your symptoms are properly documented, and that your Notice of Disagreement is properly filed. Appealing a VA decision is paperwork intensive; our attorneys will ensure that your case continues to move through the process and does not get lost in the administrative shuffle.
