Disabled veterans face an uphill battle in obtaining service connection for their service-related injuries. To win these cases requires a critical understanding of veterans affairs (VA) law and the strategic use of medical experts. Although the VA has a duty to assist that often requires it to provide medical exams for claimants, these VA exams often serve as a predicate for a denial of benefits. In this course, presented by experienced veterans’ benefits practitioner Eric Gang, you will learn how to effectively use medical experts in VA compensation cases in order to win your client’s case.
