How an Attorney Can Help a Veteran if VA Denies a Claim for VA Service Connected Compensation
With the number of compensation claims that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) denies each year, veterans need to know they have rights to appeal their denied VA disability claims. In this video, experienced VA disability attorney John V. Tucker explains how hiring an attorney once you receive a Rating Decision denial can help you appeal your denied claim for service connected compensation:
You cannot hire an attorney until the VA denies service connection or denies a rating increase. However, if you received an adverse rating decision (the denial letter), consider hiring an attorney to develop evidence if your VA claim was denied. At our firm, we do not charge a consultation fee, and we charge a contingency percentage fee out of any past due benefits you collect. That means there are no upfront fees and no monthly fees. You only pay attorney fees if you win your claim.
