When you made a pledge to serve your country, you expected to be eligible to receive all of the benefits associated with military service. But as you may have already found out, getting those benefits isn’t always a simple process–especially when it comes disability benefits.
Too often, veterans who are ill or hurt and unable to work are denied the benefits they deserve, leaving them and their families in difficult situations. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) handles benefits claims, but it doesn’t always give applications the priority and attention they deserve.
The Nashville veterans disability benefits lawyers at Ponce Law know how the process works, including all steps of filling an application and appealing the VA’s decision if it rejects your initial claim. If you choose us to handle your case, you can count on our legal team to:
- Make sure the VA understands why you can’t work – The VA wants definitive proof of disability when someone applies for benefits. We’ll collect medical records and accident reports to make sure there’s no confusion about when and where your injury or illness occurred.
- Handle the claim or appeal on your behalf – Applying for benefits is a time-consuming process. Large amounts of paperwork must be filled out correctly, completely, and submitted on time. We’ll handle this process for you while you spend time with your loved ones.
Filing a claim or submitting an appeal on your own can be an uphill battle. With our experienced legal team on your side, you can maximize your chances of getting the benefits you deserve. Call today for a free consultation.
