The first thing every veteran that is denied VA disability benefits should do is consult a lawyer. There is no cost for legal consultations. An attorney can help you decide what is the best course of action for your claim. Sometimes a lawyer may tell you not to appeal your VA claim after it is denied if they believe your rating is correct. Even if you don’t plan on hiring a lawyer to fight your VA claim denial, you should still talk to one. It is important to get legal assistance and tips for your claim. Remember, VA claim lawyers do not charge for VA denial evaluations.
