Types Of VA Claims

Our attorneys handle VA claims throughout the U.S. that involve:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Agent Orange
  • Dependents Indemnity
  • Amputation
  • Psychological cases
  • Disability compensation

At the regional office, board and court of appeals level, the hardest claims to get granted are PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and those with undiagnosed or weak medical causation linkage. TBI claims are increasing as a result of the war in Iraq. It is estimated 70 percent of Iraq combat veterans suffer from mild to severe TBI, and between 11 percent and 18 percent of Afghanistan and Iraq veterans develop PTSD. Veterans of the Gulf War, Vietnam and Somalia also suffer from PTSD and TBI.

The VA Claims Process

In order to qualify, you have to be a veteran or dependent. After you file the claim, the VA Regional Office obtains copies of the veteran's service and medical records. After the relevant evidence has been collected, the VA will issue a determination on the claim, called a "rating decision," which will either grant or deny the benefit.

If the VA denies the claim, the veteran has one year to appeal.

We Can Help With Your Denied Claim

We are allowed to represent a client only after the VA has denied their claim the first time. We handle all the administrative details, working with the client and our staff to ensure the best result possible.

By law, the VA claims process was established to be proclaimant and non-adversarial. Unfortunately, that is not the reality of it. Claims statistics reveal 33 percent of appeals are dismissed on legal technicalities. Therefore, it is important that the veteran engages a lawyer that can bring an aggressive approach to the claims process.
