February 4th, 2019| Serving in the U.S. Armed Forces is supposed to grant you certain benefits for life, including disability benefits if you suffer an injury or develop an illness during your service. However, the Veterans Administration (VA) is notoriously strict when it comes to awarding benefits to disabled service members. Studies show that as many 31 percent of disability benefits claims are denied. At Berg Injury Lawyers, we believe that veterans suffering from illnesses and injuries shouldn’t have to face the risk of having their applications denied. Our California veterans disability benefits lawyers know what the VA looks for when it processes claims, and we know how to maximize people’s chances of getting approved. If you or someone you love became disabled as a result of military service, our legal team is ready to help in the following ways:
- We’ll collect evidence that shows your disability is service-related—The VA is skeptical of most of the claims it receives. The people who review disability claims want to see proof that illnesses and injuries happened. We’re ready to provide plenty of evidence that stands up under the closest scrutiny.
- We’ll ensure that your application is free from mistakes—Some of the biggest reasons that claims are denied are oversights, inaccuracies, and mistakes. All it takes is a small misstep for an application to get denied. We’ll review yours thoroughly to make sure it’s complete and accurate from beginning to end.
