Veterans Disability Attorneys

American military veteran looking away

Our VA certified attorneys have proudly served disabled veterans in New Jersey for over 40 years. We have the experience and the dedication to ensure veterans and their loved ones receive all the benefits they deserve. The disability claims process is confusing, but we can help you successfully apply for disability benefits, survivor benefits, and more.

Understanding Veterans Disability Law

Did you know that there are more than 370,000 veterans living in New Jersey? Out of these, 99,000 are disabled and may be entitled to disability benefits.

When a veteran has a physical or mental injury or illness that has occurred as a result of or during active duty, there are opportunities for them to obtain medical care even after military service is over. When this injury or illness results in disability (also known as a service-connected disability) a veteran is entitled to receive monthly payments which depend on how severely he or she is disabled (also known as their disability rating). A Veterans Disability Attorney can help them get the benefits they deserve.

Prior to 2006 veterans were not allowed to hire VA disability lawyers to represent them in the Regional Office and the Board of Veterans Appeals. However, in 2006 Congress recognized that veterans should have the right to hire VA claim lawyers as Veterans Disability Law is extremely complex. VA disability lawyers can now represent veterans in the Regional Office and the Board of Veterans Appeals.

Appealing a Denied Claim

Veterans have the right to appeal a denied claim in the following scenarios:

  • Denial of an initial claim
  • Being given a lower-than-expected rating for an initial claim
  • Application to incorrect effective date for an initial claim

To appeal a denial, an incorrect effective date, or inadequate disability rating, contact us today for a free consultation with an attorney who specializes in veterans benefits. We will investigate all available evidence and data to create a robust appeal. Our goal is to ensure your full disability award is given.

An attorney who handles all claims of a given client gets a big picture of the person’s health that can be invaluable.

We often discover that clients benefit from claims based on disabilities, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), that they had not thought to include in their cases. Sometimes, however, even the most thoroughly prepared claim may not get accepted by the VA.
