Veterans Advocacy Law Group - National Veterans Rating Appeals Attorneys

If you are a Veteran who sustained an injury or illness as a direct result of your military service or had an existing condition that was worsened by your military service, you are entitled to disability benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Unfortunately, the process of successfully filing a claim can be frustrating, complex, and time-consuming. Many Veterans receive initial denials despite ample evidence of their service-connected conditions. 

When the VA does agree you have a service-connected condition, they will assign a “disability rating” based on their perception of your condition’s severity. The higher the disability rating, the more compensation you receive, so it is in your best interest to ensure the VA awards the appropriate rating. Sadly, just as the VA routinely denies claims, they have also made a habit of assigning disability ratings far below what the corresponding conditions should necessitate, in effect preventing Veterans from accessing the monetary resources they deserve.

If you believe you have received an unfair disability rating, do not hesitate to reach out to our seasoned team. We are a service-disabled, veteran-owned law firm, and we understand what you are going through. Our national Veterans rating appeals lawyer represented himself before the Board of Appeals and won.

Helping Veterans is what we do, and we will handle your case with the compassion and conviction it deserves.

How Are Disability Ratings Decided?

The process through which the VA ultimately calculates disability ratings is not straightforward and relies on complex formulas. However, in making a determination, the VA will examine both the medical evidence you provide and your military service records. 

Once the VA locates your condition in its Schedule of Rating Disabilities (or, if the condition is not listed in the schedule, a condition that best reflects your symptoms), it will attempt to determine its severity based on your specific medical issues. The VA could decide that your condition is mild, moderate, moderately severe, or severe. The greater the severity, the higher the disability rating. Our national Veterans rating appeals attorney can evaluate your rating determination, assess your circumstances, and advise whether an appeal is likely to succeed.

In your subsequent appeal filings, you will need to include additional evidence and legal arguments that justify a higher disability rating. Our national Veterans rating appeals attorney knows what the VA is looking for when reviewing appeals and will create a tailored strategy for your case. We work with trusted medical resources, including doctors and vocational experts, to strengthen our clients’ appeals. Appeals can take a long time to process, but we are committed to getting you the benefits you need and will be here to support you every step of the way.
