The BVA Hearing — Veterans Law Judge At The Board Of Veterans Appeals

The Board of Veterans Appeals conducts hearings with a veterans law judge. At the hearing, the veteran will testify (or refresh testimony from the decision review officer hearing) concerning the details of the disability and the precipitating event. After the hearing, the board will affirm the denial from the regional office, send the claim back to the regional office for a new review and ratings decision, or reverse the decision and grant benefits.

If the case continues to be denied, a further appeal can be taken to U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.

If you believe you have a claim for veterans disability compensation benefits or need a lawyer to appeal a denied claim, call 888-534-6016 to make an appointment at our Greensburg, Pittsburgh, or Latrobe offices with a Quatrini Rafferty veterans disability compensation attorney.
