Due to a 2007 change in VA regulations, as a veteran, you have the right to hire an attorney anytime once an initial determination has been made and you have filed a Notice of Disagreement on your case. So, if you hire Cuddigan Law to appeal your VA disability ruling, what will it cost?
Unlike many other professionals, we do not charge any upfront fees when we take your case. We work on a contingency basis which means we only get paid if we win your case and VA pays you a lump sum in back payments.
In VA disability cases, fees are limited by law to no more than 20 percent of the back payments. Fees are withheld and paid directly by the VA to the attorney
Typically there are a few minor incidental costs, separate from attorney fees, which we incur on your behalf as we prepare your case, like the costs of getting of independent medical exam if necessary, for example. Those expenses will have to be repaid at the end of your case whether you win your case or not.
Getting started is also free. For a free evaluation of your case, call us at (402) 933-5405 or email us at [email protected]
