Just because your claim was denied does not mean you are not eligible for disability benefits. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) commonly makes errors in its determinations. The denial can be a combination of not analyzing the facts of your case correctly, and it can also stem from not having proper evidence available.
Denials Commonly Result From These Areas:
• Not enough medical evidence to support your disability;
• Agreeing that you have a disability, but not finding enough evidence to show that it is connected to your military service;
• They may agree that you have a disability that is service-connected, but they might assign a rating that is too low for your actual symptoms;
• They may agree you have a disability, but find that is was pre-existing to your military service and not aggravated by your service.
