the Process of a VA Claim
You may decide to make a veterans disability claim after your service time has come to an end and you find that are suffering a severe impairment from it. Your condition may be physical, psychological, or both. The process of getting a VA claim approved can be a long and confusing one. The further that your application goes in the process, the more complex the paperwork and rules become. Don’t get discouraged. As a veteran who worked so hard for our country, you deserve these benefits.

The first step to receiving veterans disability benefits is to submit your initial application to the regional office that handles VA claims for your area.

If the response you receive from them is unfavorable, you can file for an appeal. Your claim is taken to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA) to be reconsidered. This can also be done if you feel that the rating you received was not appropriate.

If your veteran’s disability claim is denied by both your regional office and the BVA, you can then turn to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC). This is a federal court, and the decision made here will be final. If you choose to take this step, it must be done within 120 days of the date that is on your denial from the BVA.

"The lawyers were very professional and courteous. They called me at times to see if my condition had improved, stabilized or have gotten worse. They kept up with all my doctor’s diagnoses, and notes of every doctors visit. This company was truly involved in helping my disability case. I can’t show how I appreciate this company in mere words. They were truly concerned, thank you again."
