What Our Lowell Veterans Benefits Attorneys can do for You

Application

To start, our law firm can assist you with your initial application for veterans disability benefits. These cases typically begin with VA Form 21-526. This form must be properly completed and all relevant medical evidence must be included with your application. Be careful: A seemingly small mistake could result in your claim being denied or delayed.

Claim Review

Ideally, your benefits will be paid out soon after you submit the initial claim. However, if you receive an adverse decision, you have the right file an appeal. The first level of review is initiated by filing a Notice of Disagreement. Our Lowell VA benefits attorney can help you prepare and submit your Notice of Disagreement (VA-Form 21-0958). In this form, you must explain exactly why the VA made the wrong decision in your case.

Official Appeal

Finally, if you still have not been offered full and fair disability benefits after a second review of your file, you should take your case to the Board of Veterans Appeals. You have 60 days from the date the Statement of the Case (SOC) to file a form 9 (VA Form 9). If you are appealing a VA disability denial, you should get a lawyer by your side as early on in the process as possible.
