Thank you for considering Southwest Law Firm to assist you in your VA disability claim. Here is how the nexus statement process works.
A VA Nexus letter is a detailed report created by a neutral, third-party doctor that explicitly links a Veteran's disability and current medical conditions to one or more injury events that occurred as a result of their military service. Its purpose is to help a Veteran appeal a previously denied disability rating increase claim. For this appeal to be successful, a Nexus Letter from a qualified medical professional is crucial when it comes to obtaining service-connected disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Getting a high quality medical review, or Nexus Letter to help increase your VA disability rating can be a complex process. Southwest Law Firm will coordinate with a well qualified medical professional to review your disability status and help draft documentation that you can present to the VA with your disability claim.
We'll coordinate with a medical coordination company (MCC) that we work with. Work on gathering your medical docs and private evidence. The MCP will explain what they need. They will provide you a free initial assessment about your case and what is needed to move forward with an actual action plan from a doctor. This is where the doctor will review your case to determine if they can or cannot support your claim.
Complete and sign an Independent Medical Agreement between you and the MCC. You will be sent an agreement via email for you to sign.
Pay the fees for an action plan.
Review the action plan and proceed with IMO fees to move forward. The MCC will discuss pricing. It all depends on the complexity of the case.
Once the IMO fee is paid and the evidence is ready to go, the doctors will then take the information, documentation and answers they obtained from your MCC contact and work on a detailed report regarding your case, symptoms and disabilities. This report usually takes three to four weeks for completion.
The MCC will provide the final report to your attorney to use with your VA disability case.
VABenefits4Vets helped me develop the medical evidence I needed to win my case. Not only that, they also included a legal brief. I feel both items helped my case have an edge compared to what was previously by my VSO.

I had a few complicated claims that I had been working on for over five years. The DAV initially helped me and they missed a lot of claims that I could have applied for years ago. Attorney Jason Mendoza was willing to tackle my case. Within five months I was increased to 90%. I was previously rated at 10%. The Nexus Statement fee was worth the investment. So happy I decided to finally pay for one. Thank you VABenefits4Vets.com

What a difference an IMO makes! I was able to get approved for claims I was denied for in past years. If anyone is on the fence about paying for one, do it! My back pay easily paid back the credit card I put it on. :)
