Appealing Denied Veterans’ Disability Claims

Serving Louisville, Kentucky and Jeffersonville, Indiana areas


If you're a disabled veteran or the family member of a disabled veteran who you believe was wrongfully denied Veterans' Disability benefits, the Louisville attorneys at the Karl Truman Law Office may be able to help you successfully appeal your claim.

Retired Lt. Col. Karl Truman and our entire team understand the importance of Veterans' Disability benefits to injured servicemen and their families. We also know that many legitimate claims for benefits are initially denied because applicants miss minor details in their forms or do not provide adequate medical documentation for their conditions, and we have helped many disabled veterans from the Louisville, Kentucky, and Jeffersonville, Indiana, areas appeal their denied claims and get the Veterans' Disability benefits they need.

Our experienced lawyers have thorough knowledge of the Veterans' Disability claims process and appeals process. At the Karl Truman Law Office, you can "Count on the Colonel" to accurately file your notice of disagreement and request that a Decision Review Officer reconsider your claim.

If this review is not favorable and you wish to continue to pursue benefits, our attorneys can request a hearing with a member of the Board of Veterans' Appeals. If this still does not result in a decision in your favor, your claim may be taken to the Court of Appeals for Veterans' Claims.

Due to a backlog of Veterans' Disability claims and the complexity of the application and appeals process, working with an experienced Veterans' Disability lawyer is the best way to ensure you have the foundation for a successful and timely initial claim or appeal.

If you believe you were denied a valid Veterans’ Disability claim, please contact the Karl Truman Law Officetoday to schedule your free consultation. We are proud to serve veterans and their families from the greater Louisville, Kentucky, and Jeffersonville, Indiana, areas.
