Why Should You Use an Attorney for a VA Disability Claim

The bottom line is that you want the best possible outcome from the VA. There are many avenues you can take to handle your VA claim. You can choose to do it on your own. There are many pitfalls associated with this route. You could file the wrong form thereby sabotaging your case from the start. You will probably have a more challenging time developing the evidence you need let alone deciding what sort of evidence you need.

Another option is using a service organization. Such organizations play a vital role in the claims process and have done so for years, however, service organizations are not lawyers. The reason this difference is important is because having legal training positions you to see a case differently. In law school lawyers are taught how to think and view a case. Lawyers are trained on how to create evidence and the case so as to best position the case for success. Additionally, there are so many steps to take in the claims process, and, as in anything, the path a veteran takes to get from step to step is filled with traps and pitfalls for the inexperienced.

This ultimately leads to the question…”should I hire an attorney?” The answer depends on how seriously you wish to take your claim. If you aren’t real serious about your case or about winning or think that your claim is just open and shut then you may want to try another avenue. However, for the majority of veterans it makes a lot of sense to hire an attorney. Take the step to at least speak with the Vet Defender so you can assess the benefits you can receive by hiring an attorney.
