Bergmann & Moore Wins 17-Year Long Appeal for Veteran

Bergmann & Moore Wins 17-Year Long Appeal for Veteran

Earlier this month, Bergmann & Moore won a case at the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA), which resulted in more than 12 years of retroactive benefits for the Veteran.

The appeal for entitlement to Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU) was pending at VA for nearly 17 years. After more than 11 years of fighting VA alone, the Veteran hired Bergmann & Moore.

Despite BVA issuing three more denials of the Veteran’s claim for TDIU, Bergmann & Moore prevailed each time at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC), resulting in the case returning to BVA for a new decision. The case was recently granted in full due to the supporting evidence and argument Bergmann & Moore provided on behalf of the Veteran.

This grant resulted in more than $200,000 in retroactive benefits for the Veteran.
