What Is This Going To Cost?
You know your veterans disability claim has been denied. You know that the next step is to appeal this decision. And you know that hiring a veterans disability lawyer will make the appeals process simpler and less stressful. But did you know that hiring a veterans disability attorney here in Greensboro, N.C., will cost you little to no money out of pocket?
The Department of Veterans Affairs strictly enforces regulations on how much a veteran can be charged for legal representation in disability appeals cases. And the veterans disability lawyers at Ward Black Law understand how tight finances can be when you’ve discovered your initial claim for veterans benefits has been denied. That’s why our compensation is contingent upon the success of your appeals case.
If we don’t win your case, then you don’t pay. It’s that simple.
The only time legal representation by Ward Black Law will cost you anything is when we have helped you win your appeal. To understand how the payment process works, you must first understand what occurs once your claim has been approved.
Upon approval of your claim, the Department of Veterans Affairs will verify the date your injury or disability was first documented. Once this date of injury or disability is determined, the VA will then calculate any and all back pay that you are owed. For example, if your appealed claim is approved in July of 2013, but your injury was initially sustained in July of 2008, then the VA will determine that you are owed five years’ worth of back pay. As veterans benefits in NC are paid on a monthly basis, these months and sometimes years of back pay can result in a substantial amount.
It is from this back pay that a veterans disability lawyer is compensated. Upon successfully winning the appeal of your claim, your veterans disability lawyer will receive a fixed percentage of the back pay awarded to you by the VA. More often than not, this percentage will be removed from your back payment before the back pay check is sent to you. As a result, you don’t have to undertake the extra steps associated with paying an attorney fee.
