On What Grounds Can The Denial Of My Claim For Benefits Or Services Be Overturned?

If new and material evidence has been presented that affects a previous denial of a claim the secretary can reopen the claim for review and possibly reverse the previous decision to deny the claim.  Also, if the Board of Veterans’ Appeals or a court of law finds that a denial of benefits by the Department has been made because of a “clear and unmistakable error,” the decision can be revised or reversed.  If a decision regarding a benefit or service claim by a veteran has been remanded to a regional office for reconsideration by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals or a court of law, the regional office must expedite such a matter to make the proper decision regarding the claim in a timely manner.
