Veterans Disability

I have been reading allot of rating decisions from the VA lately and I am amazed at how the Veterans Administration has handled some the claims for compensation and pension. I can clearly see why many veterans have been pushing to have the right to hire lawyers. Many of the ratings decisions show that the VA did not get all the medical and service files before making a decision. In others, I noticed the veteran was never sent for the proper exam or the decision maker flat out disregarded the opinion of the doctor who did the exam for the VA. I strongly believe that lawyers will help to make sure the files are properly worked up and ready for a decision before one is made.
