A similar thing happened to me and they shot it down very quickly- In my NOD -....
I made a specific bullet point paper listing the dates of the connections to dx./ treatment dates and any doctor information- - "bolded and underlined for clarity" - Good Luck
I emailed Keli too-
Since the DRO recently called with my new decision and stated"I have never seen an MST case as violent and ongoing as yours, I just had to call and tell you". Seriously - after 2 NOD's you call or .... finally read my claim!! My complaint : this statement was made to me, it was the same evidence the DRO looked at that was submitted in the low ball rating back in 2010!
I had an NIS reports,with crime scene photos and schematics of room- Sheriff Reports, 15 witness statements, the offender's confession of the attempted murder and rape, his court martial & discharge then me as a Prosecutorial witness at the same offenders murder trial of his next victim 3 mos after my assault........The only things I added was an IMO and the blocking of the parole hearings, now in the present day. ($5,000- out of pocket expenses) so a delayed decision was in error.
I am up to 90% on my own, but I am tired - I have an attorney that is processing for backdating pay due to the above, and it is going very well with all the evidence.
What if I had not been so persistent? The VA loves that!
I have my retirement benefits,- due to serving 22 years - but that was never the point for me getting 100%DV - Just 100% of what a true evaluation is for my circumstances!
This is my first post after looking for similar situations. My C&P exam for spine issues was in June and it seemed favorable until an addendum was made this month which turned everything around. They denied my claim for aggravated spine issues and had inaccurate information stating my condition didn't progress until after service. Is the best way to go about this by filing an appeal or by making a new claim for low back pain?
Yes, she specifically referenced the 2002 Navy Medical Center Sleep Study and went on to say that " it showed OSA in the mild degree. Therefore, a continuing worsening symptoms of his sleep apnea that was already noted since 2002. This is in support of claim of his medical condition that has exacerbated thru time". Yes, It could have been worded differently and even better, yet I think it's as good as the canned statement that it's more likely than not a result of SC blah blah blah. It shows that it was DX'd on active duty and has worsened. But, you have seen more of these than I.
