Why Should I Hire a VA Disability Lawyer?

When beginning your VA disability claim, it can be challenging to determine whether you will need an attorney to assist you with the process. After all, lawyers are expensive and cannot promise specific outcomes. When making such an impactful decision, it can be helpful to know exactly what a VA disability attorney does for their clients and if they are right for you.

What Can a VA Disability Lawyer Do For You?

A VA disability attorney’s primary concern will always be representing their client’s best interests. After all, that is precisely the purpose of hiring them. A VA disability lawyer can help their client prepare his or her disability application and manage any denial, which is quite common.

They work to develop a strategy that prioritizes client needs and optimizes success. Some of the most common things a VA disability attorney can do include:

  • Explain the application process
  • Explain the types of disability benefits available for Veterans
  • Review a case to determine eligibility for VA disability benefits
  • Collect medical information to support a claim of disability
  • Help to complete and submit the benefits application
  • Attend hearings
  • File an appeal for a denial of Veteran’s disability benefits

Additional Factors to Consider When Hiring a VA Disability Attorney

Along with considering what a VA disability lawyer can do to support a claim, a few more things can help guide the search process. When hiring an attorney, it is crucial to confirm that they are accredited by the VA’s Office of General Counsel (OGC). These lawyers are specially trained to assist through the process, and when they are not accredited, they could likely overcharge or threaten the success of a disability application. The Jan Dils team is proud to be VA-accredited.

Similarly, it should be noted that most attorneys collect a 20% contingency fee for their assistance with disability claims, but the VA approves fees up to 33%. However, if the VA has reason to believe that a lawyer is charging too great a fee for their services, they can order a fee reduction.
