Through review of the foundational concepts of veteran's law and case studies we review basic errors made with the initial filing of claims for VA Disability Compensation benefits, the impact of those errors on the veteran, the process of disagreeing with a VA decision, and resolving issues outside of the VA appeals process if at all possible. We cover the filing of good appeals and obtaining supporting evidence, medical evidence, medical opinions, and legal arguments in support of the claim. Briefly discussed is dependency and issues related to benefits for the survivors of veterans who die of service related conditions.
