To say that the VA disability claims process is complicated is a major understatement. In order to protect your interests, it is imperative that you are represented by a qualified Champaign veterans rights attorney. For most applicants, the first step in the process requires completing VA Form 21-526. A small mistake or omission on this form could result in lengthy delays or even an outright denial of your claim.
The VA assigns all applicants a disability rating. The higher the rating (0-100 scale), the more serious your disability is deemed by VA officials. If your rating is too low, you may not receive full benefits. In some cases, you may not receive benefits at all. Our legal team will help you prepare your application with the proper medical documentation to ensure that your disability rating is properly assigned. If the VA assigns a rating that is too low, we will jump into action, fighting on your behalf so that you can recover the full benefits you deserve under federal law.
