For many of our veterans and servicemembers the transition to civilian life has been a complicated and frustrating time. This is especially true for those who were injured during active duty and come home with physical and mental scars. Fortunately, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has established compensation for our veterans who continue to suffer the effects of the injuries they received in service. Be it PTSD or cancer from contact with Agent Orange, the VA provides our nation’s veterans with a avenue to be compensated.
Unfortunately, the veterans benefits claim process is confusing, time-consuming, and often frustrating. Many veterans groups and government agencies have been established to assist veterans with their claims; however, these organizations are overworked with many Veteran Service Officer (VSO) or County Veteran Service Officers (CVSO) responsible for hundreds, if not thousands of claims at a single time.
The true frustration of the claims process results when after the long, multi-year, claims process concludes, the VA denies a veteran benefits despite the veteran being entitled to compensation. When a low rating decision or denial of a claim is determined by the VA, Veterans need to understand their rights to appeal.
At N.M.L.B. Veterans Advocacy Group, Inc., (NMLB), we assist veterans through the difficult and complex legal process in appealing an unsatisfactory rating decision. Led by former Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs for the state of Wisconsin, NMLB advocates are licensed, practicing attorneys with experience assisting veterans with their legal need and veterans benefit appeals.
