Why Was My Disability Claim Turned Down?
Many Veterans claims are denied because the applicant was unable to establish a service connection for his or her disability. It's not enough to show that you have a physical or mental impairment. You must establish a service connection for the impairment.
There are several ways to establish a service connection to your disability. The law does not require you to prove that you were diagnosed with a disability or illness while you were in military service. You may be entitled to benefits if your current disability can be linked to an incident that occurred while you were in military service. For example, you may have developed heart disease that may be relate to a service-relateded injury that has restricted your mobility and made it hard for you to exercise.
How Do I Appeal a Denied Claim?
If your disability claim is turned down or if your disability rating claim is not high enough, you can appeal the decision to both the Board of Veterans' Appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Our lawyers can assist you at every step of the appeals process.
