The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) encourages people filing new claims to work with an attorney or accredited agent who has received specialized training in the laws and procedures regarding VA benefits. We could not agree more. The claims process is difficult, and veterans deserve to be represented by professionals who have experience navigating the process and a history of successful claims.
We work hard, devoting over 20,000 hours of time to veteran disability law each year. We offer veterans their best chance at a successful claim.
In order to determine whether you are eligible for disability compensation and can file a new claim with the VA, facts and documents must be gathered about your injury and its origin. We work with a network of medical specialists, many former military physicians, who can help gather evidence and ensure your claim has the best likelihood for success.
You may be qualified to file a new claim with the VA if:
1. You have eligible injuries, including: injuries to the musculoskeletal system, ears, skin and neurological system, as well as mental disorders, cardiovascular problems, and problems with the digestive system and respiratory system.
2. Your injury is service related and you were discharged from service under ruling other than dishonorable conditions.
In order to submit an application, you must complete all required paperwork:
1. Discharge or separation papers (DD214 or equivalent)
2. Medical evidence (doctor and hospital reports)
3. Dependency records (marriage and children’s birth certificates)
We can help you assemble all required documents, and our experienced attorneys will support you through the entire application process.
