We Develop Your Evidence
One of the big reasons veterans should obtain our North Carolina veterans VA disability benefits lawyers is because we develop your evidence. Too often your medical records and application are not going to be enough to get VA disability benefits. If you hire our attorneys for the appeal stage, we must develop your evidence beyond what you have already submitted. The next section explains how we develop evidence.
You may be thinking your current evidence is enough to win a claim – you could be very wrong. For almost every appeal our VA benefits appeal lawyers file, we use expert reports. These come from doctors outside the VA, psychologists, vocational experts, and other experts to write reports detailing how your conditions are direct and secondarily service-connected. These medical reports win claims. These reports are particularly important for veterans who are missing medical or service records. If you don’t have the evidence to win your claim, develop it.
