Men and women join the military for myriad reasons, coming together from all walks of life from all over the United States to serve their country. Members of the Armed Forces perform an invaluable service, and time in the military is often one during which strong bonds are made. Family members are missed, circumstances can be life threatening, and the experience usually leaves an indelible mark. Veterans may return home with a mixed bag of emotions, and sometimes with serious health issues, too. If this has been the case for you, it may be difficult to juggle coming home, adapting to civilian life, and addressing disabling health issues.
You’ve Been Denied
Filing a disability claim can be an arduous task. Many veterans have spent an inordinate amount of time filing the initial claim, submitting supporting evidence, waiting, plus dealing with your health, only to find out the claim was denied. Unfortunately, this is a common occurrence that many veterans experience.
Where do you go from here?
The most important thing to keep in mind is that although this is extremely frustrating, it’s also extremely common. VA makes mistakes, evidence is overlooked, and while it might seem like the end of the world upon receiving the bad news, the truth is that many denials are the result of a simple error.
