Our client applied, on his own, for an increased service-connected disability percentage for his GERD diagnosis. He was denied the increase after a Board of Veterans Appeals hearing in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our veterans disability attorneys were retained, and they appealed his case to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims in Washington, D.C., where they successfully argued that the Veterans law judge failed to consider specific symptoms diagnosed by the client’s treating physicians. The Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims remanded the claim back to the Board of Veterans Appeals for another hearing and review of the medical evidence.
