Military veterans who are honorably discharged from the military are entitled to compensation if they were injured during their service and are unable to work. However, the process of applying for military benefits through the VA can be slow and tedious and a denial of benefits can occur if one’s injury is not documented in extensive detail. Many veterans do not realize that help is available in both correctly submitting a claim an in appealing a VA decision. Our federal employment attorneys assist veterans in all phases of the application and appeals process. Contact our office today for a consultation with our lawyers.
Atlanta based attorneys assisting veterans with disabilities who require benefits
The initial application process for VA benefits is paperwork intensive and slow moving. Once the VA has received a veteran’s application it will issue a rating decision. Many veterans are disappointed to find out that the VA has rated their medical condition as not severe enough to deserve benefits and do not feel that there is anything else that can be done. Often, if you can ensure that your initial application is properly submitted then you may be able to avoid long delays followed by a denial. If you are denied benefits by Veteran’s Affairs then you may dispute the finding by filing the Notice of Disagreement. Having an attorney to assist you with the process can be important to the ultimate outcome.
Our Atlanta based attorneys will review your VA rating and challenge a decision if we believe you have not received fair treatment. Our lawyers assist former members of the armed services who are now suffering from conditions such as:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Head trauma
- Military sexual trauma
- Spinal Injuries
