Millions of American veterans depend on VA disability benefits as their main source of income. But mistakes are sometimes made in the handling of these claims, which leaves deserving veterans and their families with financial struggles.
The attorneys at Woods and Woods Injury Lawyers explain that claims processors often make errors when a former service member is applying for veterans’ disability benefits. While this can be frustrating, there are options to appeal the decision. For those awarded benefits, the consequences of a mistake can often be more severe.
The Washington Examiner released an article that discussed how a number of veterans lost their benefits after the Department of Veterans’ Affairs made a mistake in the handling of their claims. In many of these cases, the VA accidentally declared a recipient dead and cut off his or her benefits. The story went on to examine the difficult process these individuals had to go through to have benefits reinstated, including enlisting the help of a top legislator in Washington, D.C.
If your claim for veterans’ disability benefits was wrongfully denied or a mistake caused your benefits to be cut off, a veterans’ disability benefits lawyer from Woods and Woods Injury Lawyers may be able to help protect your rights to the benefits you’re owed.
