Your Local Michigan Veterans Benefits (VA) Attorneys

If the Department of Veterans Affairs has rejected your claim, you are not alone. Securing proper benefits from the VA can be a challenging process, but it is achievable.

At Bahrie Law, PLLC, we offer assistance to veterans from all military branches in Michigan in obtaining the necessary support. Whether it’s the initial filing of your claim or crafting a compelling appeal, our goal is to ensure our clients receive all the VA benefits to which they are rightfully entitled.

We are a local Michigan firm. From our offices in Metro Detroit and Lansing, we serve clients throughout the state.

Do I Qualify For VA Benefits?

This question is on the minds of many disabled veterans.

To meet the VA disability eligibility requirements, it must be shown that the veteran has a service-related illness or injury that was caused by active military service or was made worse by active military service. Vets who were sickened, injured or wounded due to military service qualify.

However, these claims are routinely denied. When this happens, veterans can seek help from a veteran benefits attorney. At Bahrie Law, PLLC, we can help gather evidence to show that the disabling medical condition is related to the military service. Sometimes there is a direct link – sometimes there is not. We can help determine if there is a secondary service connection.

How The VA Disability Rating Impacts Your Case

You will receive a disability rating from 0% to 100%. If your VA disability rating is at 0%, you do not qualify for tax-free monthly payments. However, you may still be eligible for other benefits such as health care. With a 100% disability rating, the maximum monthly compensation is granted. If your combined rating falls between 10% and 100%, your monthly benefit increases in increments of 10% based on the VA combined disability rating.

If the VA has inaccurately assessed your disability or your condition has worsened since your initial rating, you may qualify for an increase in your disability rating, leading to a higher monthly benefit. We can apply for four legal options to obtain your rating increase by filling:

  • An appeal to raise your VA rating
  • A new claim to seek an increased rating
  • For Total Disability Based On Individual Unemployability (TDIU)
  • For secondary service disability

When you have a denied veterans benefits case in Michigan, choosing a local firm like Bahrie Law, PLLC, offers key advantages, including in-depth knowledge of state processes, personalized assistance and familiarity with local resources.
