A Denial Of Your VA Disability Claim Is Not The End

When you are denied compensation for a disability, or if you disagree with your rating decision because you believe the award is too low, you still have options. It is possible to file an appeal of the decision, and an experienced Veterans Compensation benefits attorney can help you build a compelling appellate case.

Appealing Denied VA Claims Since 1991

The lawyers of Manring & Farrell have represented more than 15,000 clients in Ohio since our firm opened in 1991, and during that time, we have had many successes at the appellate level. Our entire staff works collaboratively, allowing us to draw on more than 80 years of combined experience for every client. Our narrow focus — we only represent clients in matters involving veterans benefits and Social Security Disability or SSI benefits — is on purpose. By limiting our services to just these two (2) areas, we remain on the cutting-edge of these legal topics and can offer the best representation to disabled clients when they need it the most.

Things To Know About VA Appeals

Some of the appeal-related topics that we routinely discuss in initial consultations with clients include:

  • Denied claims or compensation that you believe to be too low must be appealed within one year. Contact us as soon as possible so you do not run out of time to file your appeal.
  • The appeal is called a Notice of Disagreement (NOD) and may be filed with your VA regional office.
  • An attorney may mail a Notice of Disagreement to the VA by certified mail, return receipt requested so it can be proven that the VA received your appeal in time.
