Once a Veteran’s claim for service connection is granted, VA will assign a disability rating based on the severity of their condition. This rating will establish the tax-free monetary payment the Veteran will receive each month. If a Veteran is not satisfied with the rating VA has assigned, they can appeal the decision within one year of the date on the Rating Decision.
A Veteran can also file for an increased rating for a service-connected condition if the disability has worsened since the original rating was established.
Filing for an increased rating does not guarantee that VA will award one. Bergmann & Moore has been successful in winning claims for increased ratings.
If you’ve received an unfavorable decision from VA, Bergmann & Moore may be able to help.
