Appealing Denied VA Disability Claims
Service members dedicate their lives to serving their country. And they have a right to benefits if they were severely injured or impaired during their service. However, it is all too common that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) denies veterans disability benefits. If your benefits have been denied, or you believe you have been underpaid, you have the right to appeal. And we are here to help.

Guidance Through The VA Appeals Process
The VA could deny, reduce or cut off your disability benefits if they disagree with:
- The existence of a disability
- The relation of the disability to military service
- The disability level or rating in the claim
We will guide you through the entire VA appeals process, from filing a Notice of Disagreement (NOD) to a potential hearing before the Board of Veterans Appeals or a Texas decision review officer. The appeals process can be time-consuming, often lasting from one to seven years. That is also why it is critical to work with a military law attorney. We can help you navigate the process and obtain your benefits as efficiently as possible.
