Was Your Application Denied? Get The Benefits You Deserve.
Veterans put their lives at risk to protect our country. So when a veteran receives an injury related to their service, they deserve to receive disability benefits to help cover their medical costs. Unfortunately, many veterans’ applications for benefits are rejected for unfair reasons.
If you are a veteran who needs help obtaining the VA benefits you deserve, then The Bainbridge Firm, LLC, can represent you. Our Ohio Veteran’s disability lawyers understand the crucial service that you performed for our country. We will work to expedite your application and obtain the maximum benefits available to you.
What Steps Should I Take If My Application Was Denied?
We understand how frustrating it can feel when the Department of Veterans Affairs denies your claim. There is a set of steps that you can follow to contest a denial and appeal your claim.
- You must file a Notice of Disagreement with your local VA office within a deadline of one year from when you received the denial. If this window closes, you must start the application process again.
- The VA will mail you a Statement of the Case, which explains its decision to deny your appeal.
- To appeal, you can file a Form 9 with the Board of Veterans Appeals. There is also a deadline for filing this document.
If these steps sound complicated, it’s because they are. Many veterans make a simple mistake in the paperwork or miss an important deadline, costing them their benefits. The Bainbridge Firm, LLC, can guide you through this bureaucratic process, taking the burden off your shoulders.
