WHAT IS THE U.S. COURT OF APPEALS FOR VETERANS CLAIMS?
It is a unique court that has exclusive jurisdiction over appeals of unfavorable decisions by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals. The Court determines if the VA followed the law during the adjudication of your claim. The review is limited to evidence that was present to the VA Board when the original decision was made. If the Court determines an error was made by the VA Board, the claim will be remanded or sent back to the VA Board for correction of the errors made.
