What Kind of Help Do You Need? Select One:

  • Apply for Social Security Disability Benefits. When we submit an application on your behalf, our disability lawyers can ensure that your benefits claim is not denied due to an error or for incomplete information. From there, we’ll manage the entire process for you.  Depending upon your situation, it may include filing an appeal all the way to a Federal Court suit if necessary.
  • Fight Denied Disability Benefits & File for Reconsideration. Even a social security claimant who has a  legitimate illness or disability may get turned down before successfully obtaining benefits under the Social Security Act. You have the right to appeal your denial and recover lost benefits.
  • Request a Hearing After a Second Denial If your claim is rejected after filing a reconsideration request, our social security disability attorneys can appeal and continue to seek benefits on your behalf by requesting a hearing with a Social Security Administrative Law Judge.
  • Appeal Hearing Decision If a Social Security Administrative Law Judge rules against you and denies your claim for Social Security benefits, we can appeal by submitting a legal brief on your behalf. The brief will be reviewed by an Appeals Board.
  • File Suit in Federal Court. If previous appeals are denied, the next step is to file suit in Federal District Court. We will review your case to determine if this is appropriate for your claim.

Securing Benefits for Veterans

 South Carolina Veterans’ Disability Benefits Lawyers

Vet Benefits AttorneyStrom Law Firm, LLC is centrally located in Columbia, South Carolina, just minutes from Dorn VA. We help injured veterans throughout South Carolina appeal or fight a disability rating that is too low.

In many ways, disabled veteran’s benefits claims concern issues and challenges similar in nature to what we experience when helping non-veterans apply for and obtain Social Security disability benefits.

Did you know that disability ratings determined by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs are not permanent? If you think that an initial disability rating given to you by the VA is too low, there are steps you can take to appeal the VA disability decision and fight to have it changed. Likewise, there is also a process in place to address the needs of disabled veterans whose disabilities have worsened over time.

Establishing a Claim for Veteran’s Benefits:

To be entitled to service-connected benefits, a veteran must prove that his disability was the result of military service or medical treatment by the VA hospital and was not the result of his own willful misconduct.

To learn more about the VA disability process, contact Strom Law Firm’s South Carolina Veteran’s Disability lawyers.  The veterans administration benefit attorneys at The Strom Law Firm, LLC  can provide you with representation and services needed to deal with either of these situations. This may include a careful analysis of reports from your initial disability evaluation, gathering documentation from new medical providers and healthcare experts, and using other resources as needed to prove that a change in your rating is warranted.

To talk about your veterans’ disability benefits, your current disability rating, or what our veterans benefits lawyers may be able to accomplish for you contact us today for a free consultation. All veterans’ disability and benefits cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. We receive no attorneys’ fees  or costs unless we are able to get your rating and your veterans’ disability payments increased.
