Do You Need a Veterans Benefits Lawyer? Seek Legal Counsel in Texas

Published on March 23rd, 2018

Most people in Texas don’t realize how difficult the application/appeal process can be as a veteran. If you were disabled while performing your civic duty, you have the right to compensation. However, the VA office works to discredit your claims and may deny you based on a technicality. If that happens, you have the right to hire a veteran’s benefits lawyer. They can help you present your case the right way so that you have a better chance of succeeding.

Lawyers Work with Experts

Most cases are denied because of insufficient supporting evidence. If you claim that you cannot work because of a physical or emotional issue, you need to have documentation to prove it. A veteran’s benefits lawyer works with all types of experts, including psychologists and doctors, to gather all of the necessary medical reports and evidence needed to prove your case. Lawyers can also gain access to your C-File (Claims File) to look for evidence. Hiring psychologists for mental impairment evaluations may also be necessary.

The Law is Challenging

Most people in Texas believe that all they must do is fill out the form they are given. You can find these forms online or print them off and mail them. However, you need much more to prove your case than simply filling out forms. You have to follow all federal regulations, and they are confusing and complex.

What Are the Fees?

If you do hire an attorney, make sure they work on a contingency basis. This means that they don’t charge you any money until you win. If you don’t win your case, you don’t pay them anything. However, they do pay for any expenses, such as experts or reports that are essential to your case.
