Veterans that appeal their claims tend to win. Of the almost 1 million claims pending before the VA, 300,000 to 400,000 are denied every year. But most of the veterans and families that have claims denied do not appeal. In fact, of the claims denied by the VA Regional Office, only 40,000 appeal to the Board of Veterans' Appeals. Veterans that appeal win their claims at an extremely high rate. Further, BVA statistics show that veterans with lawyers win at a much higher rate than those without.
