Denied Veterans Disability Claims

Experienced Arkansas VA Appeals Attorney: (888) 317-4276

Many VA benefits claims are initially denied. Some are due to administrative errors, lack of sufficient paperwork, or even human error when a review officer reviews claims. With all the paperwork and records that the VA requires, many veterans are finding it increasingly difficult to get their claims approved. This is why it is crucial that you seek professional advocacy when dealing with disability claims.

If your VA benefits have been denied, speak with an Arkansas VA appeals lawyer at the Law Office of Mike Angel. I focus my firm exclusively on disability law and helping veterans seek the benefits they need.

Appealing a Denied VA Benefits Claim

Once your claim is denied, you must follow the proper procedures in order to file an appeal. You can file an appeal for any reason, including disagreeing with the VA’s rating or disputing the claim that your disability is not linked to your service.

The process to appeal a denied VA claim:

  • File a Notice of Disagreement with the VA office nearest you. In the notice, you must state why you disagree with the decision.
  • The decision review officer will then review your claim and produce a Statement of the Case explaining the reasons for their decision, along with a VA Form 9, an appeals form.
  • Fill out the VA Form 9 explaining your side, and whether you want to request a hearing.

If you are given a hearing, you will have the opportunity to present your case further to the Board of Veterans Appeals. It is important that you prepare for the hearing with an attorney, who can help you compile the right evidence and ensure you are ready to answer questions by the Board.
