September 16th, 2019| As a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, you pledged to serve your country, even if it meant putting your life in danger. In return, you were supposed to receive benefits and privileges, including access to disability payments if you became sick or injured during your service. Unfortunately, the Veterans Administration (VA) has strict criteria for approving veterans disability claims, and that means many otherwise valid claims fall through the cracks every year. At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California veterans disability attorneys know that far too many dedicated and hardworking veterans are denied by the VA when they apply for benefits after suffering service-related injuries and illnesses. The VA is a huge organization with a massive backlog of applications, and once you’re denied, it can seem hopeless that you’ll ever get a second chance. Our team is here to help veterans like you maximize their chances of success by building strong claims the first time around. We also know how to navigate the VA’s system to ensure your appeal will be heard and reviewed if you’ve already been rejected. Filing your initial claim or appeal on your own can be like rolling the dice. Some applicants get lucky and are quickly approved, while others wait for months or even years to hear a decision, only to be turned down. Don’t risk the benefits you’ve earned—let us investigate your service-related health problems and build a strong claim for you and your loved ones. Call today for a free consultation.
