Recently, I received a letter from the Department of Veterans Affairs ("VA") increasing my client's service connected disability amount. It was a case of getting the right information to the right person. The veteran's physician was willing to examine the veteran and complete a questionnaire regarding the veteran's service connected disability. The exam and questionnaire were forwarded to the VA, along with a letter explaining that the evidence was competent medical evidence. Within a few months, the VA wrote us back stating that it was adopting the submitted evidence and that a new rating decision would be issued promptly. Not all cases are this straight forward, but it's good to know the veteran will not face any more delays.
"These recoveries and testimonials are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the injuries, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors. Furthermore, no representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers."
