Denied Veterans Disability You've Done Your Part, Let Us Do Ours

Atlanta Denied VA Disability Lawyer

There are several reasons why benefits might be denied. If you have been told that you are ineligible for veteran's compensation and you do not agree with the decision, an Atlanta veterans disability lawyer should be consulted.

What do I do if my VA Claim is Denied?

Benefits are normally denied because the disability is not viewed as being service-connected, or you are not considered disabled. If you think the determination made in your case has been unfair, our firm can help you to appeal to the Board of Veterans' Appeals (BVA). An appeal can be made when veterans compensation is denied, or when the claimant disagrees with the amount granted. The first step in the appeals process is to send a "Notice of Disagreement." This notice is supposed to be sent within one year of the date of your denial. The Notice of Disagreement should be filed on VA Form 21-0958. This form is the only way you can appeal a denial of your disability claim. If the BVA still does not grant you the benefits you feel you are entitled to, there are additional steps you can take.
