TX VA Compensation Attorney
If you are looking for help with your VA compensation claim you may want to know when you can hire a lawyer to help with the
process. You can hire a lawyer as soon as you get a decision on your application for VA disability benefits. If
you are looking for help with your application you can contact a TX veterans service organization or you can usually find
help from one of these organizations in the same building as the VA regional office. If you are denied or you are not
happy with the outcome of the decision you can then consider hiring a VA compensation attorney to help you. Most VA
disability lawyers charge 20% of past due benefits to help with your claim. In other words, they only get paid if they
win more benefits for you and they would get 20% of the past due money owed to you but none of any future benefits. The
next question you may ask is how an attorney can help you with your VA compensation claim in TX? A lawyer will review
your decision and determine why your claim might have been denied or why you may have received less benefits than you deserved.
They will also review your c-file to determine what additional information or medical records are needed to get you
the right decision. They will then submit a brief on your behalf detailing why the decision is flawed and outline what
benefits the veteran is entitled to and why. As you continue in the process it may require the lawyer to represent you
at a BVA hearing. If you continue to be unhappy with the decision it may even require the attorney to represent you
at the Court of Veterans Claims and sometimes even requires the lawyer to argue on your behalf at the Federal Courts.
How to Appeal a VA Rating Decision in TX
After you have applied you will at some point receive a rating decision
also referred to as a RD. If you do not think the decision was correct you will need to appeal. To appeal the
decision you need to file a Notice of Disagreement also called an NOD for short. You have one year from the date of
the decision to file your NOD. You should explain in your NOD what you are appealing and why. You also need to
let the VA know if you are requesting a decision review officer or a traditional appeal. If you request a decision review
officer the decision will be reviewed again by a DRO. The DRO will then issue an SOC or Statement of the Case. If
you chose the traditional process then you will have to file a VA 9 form. The case will then be sent to the BVA or Board
of Veteran Appeals were a BVA judge will make a new decision usually after a hearing. I should also mention if you chose
the DRO option after you receive the SOC you would then file a VA 9 which will then take you to the BVA. If you have
any questions or need help with your claim you can call me at 1-877-527-5529. You can also view my
