Yes. If you are not happy with the answer you received from the VA Regional Office, you can and should appeal. To appeal the decision, you would need to complete a Notice of Disagreement (NOD). This document is your opportunity to explain why you disagree with VA's original decision. Once you have completed the NOD you can request a hearing with the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA). If you still don't get a favorable answere from the BVA you can take your case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. It is statistically beneficial for you to consult with a private attorney, who is experience with Veteran Affairs, during the appeals process with the BVA and/or the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
