Attorneys for VA Compensation in OH

Ask lawyer VA compensation Question.

If you have been denied VA compensation benefits you can hire a lawyer to help you with your claim. For years, you could only get help from a veteran’s service organization. A law was passed in June of 2007 that allows veterans to hire attorneys for their denied VA compensation claims in OH and every other state. Most VA lawyers in OH and other states charge 20% of past due benefits. The lawyer only gets paid if he or she is able to get you your benefits or additional benefits, and it results in the award of past due benefits. Some attorneys may charge a higher percentage than 20%, but if they do so it must be approved by the VA when the case is completed.
 
The VA compensation process can be very complex and it is a good idea to get help with your claim. You may want to contact a VA disability lawyer or a veteran’s service organization for this help. A good representative can assist an Ohio veteran get their service connected VA compensation benefits in many ways. They first will look at why you have been denied, or why you received less than you were entitled to in your rating decision. A lawyer or representative should then review your entire claim file to make sure it includes all of the evidence that is favorable to your claim. The VA attorney can then seek additional evidence if it is needed.   Attorneys will also write a brief which explains to the VA why there decision was wrong, and explains what you should be entitled to. If you have to attend a hearing it is helpful to have a lawyer by your side to ask the right questions, and present to the judge the best arguments as to why you are entitled to the benefits you seek.
