Hiring a South Portland VA Benefits Attorney to Pursue Your Benefits

Published on November 6th, 2019

When you were in the military, you paid into benefits that you perhaps never thought that you would need to use later. However, now that you are sick or disabled, you need to make use of these funds with which to support yourself and your household.

The military executives in charge of these benefits are not eager to disburse them to first-time applicants. You can better your chances of receiving them by hiring a VA disability attorney to represent you today.

Making a Solid Case

Having a VA disability attorney representing your case can improve your chances of being approved for benefits on your first try. When you file for benefits, you will have to provide ample proof to the judge assigned to your case that you are severely sick or injured and cannot return to your work duties. The judge must be convinced that you have no valid means of supporting yourself or your dependents.

Your lawyer can provide this proof in the form of medical reports, doctor’s notes from exams, testimony from supervisors and co-workers, and psychiatric reports. He or she can also have you physically demonstrate your limited movement and cognitive abilities to the court. With your lawyer’s arguments to the court, you could win your case and get the benefits that you need without making a second or third appeal.

Appealing the First Decision

If you lose your first case or receive limited benefits, you always have the option of making an appeal. Your lawyer can file an appeal on your case immediately after you get your first decision. Your second court date can be scheduled within a matter of weeks.
