A hearing is a critical component in the appeal of your VA disability claim decision. For help filing a request for a hearing, speak to a veterans’ disability attorney. A lawyer can help identify errors that were made in the processing of your claim which resulted in your denial. An attorney can also help you obtain the medical evidence that is necessary to file a successful claim, or enhance the quality of your claim.
