Stark & Stark Shareholders Vicki W. Beyer and Marci H. Jordan Co-Authored NJ.com Article

Shareholders Vicki W. Beyer and Marci H. Jordan, both members of the Workers’ Compensation Group, co-authored the article Veterans Disability Benefits: Navigating the VA’s Complex System, which was published on NJ.com on October 9, 2015.

The article explains the appeals process for denied VA benefits. Veterans who have served our country and are now suffering from disabilities can apply to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to receive benefits and compensation for the injuries they incurred during their service. Unfortunately, the process can be complicated and overwhelming, and sometimes veterans are denied benefits or awarded benefits at an incorrect rating as a result. If this happens, there is an appeals process, which can be equally convoluted. A veteran can increase his or her chance of succeeding on an appeal by selecting an attorney to represent them.

That being said, the most important aspect of this is that the attorney chosen should be accredited by the VA. “The accreditation process includes screening attorneys for their character and fitness, and requires them to be trained in representing disabled veterans before the Department of Veterans Affairs.”

Furthermore, “[i]t is also important to note that, as a veteran, the individual will not have to pay his or her attorney until the end of their case, and only if he or she is awarded disability benefits.”
