  1. His attorney pretty much losing the case for him because the attorney is inexperienced. https://scholar.google.com/scholar_case?case=6651099112084686325&q=ftca+veteran&hl=en&scisbd=2&as_sdt=6,34 This isn't the 1990's anymore. The VA made the news for settling too many claims, so they are not settling unless you prove your case. If you don't know how to file your SF-95 then you are screwed. Even an attorney can mess up. You have 6 months to file a lawsuit after it is denied by the VA. You use up 3 months and the US attorney uses up 2 months and the

  2. https://www.va.gov/oig/pubs/VAOIG-17-04966-201.pdf In part from VA OIG Press Release: "The VA Office of Inspector General (OIG) reviewed reexamination requests by the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) and estimated that, from March through August 2017, VBA spent $10.1 million on unwarranted reexaminations. The OIG estimated that VBA would waste an additional $100.6 million over the next five years unless it ensures that VBA employees only request reexaminations when necessary. According to VBA policy, employees can request reexaminations for veterans when there is a need to veri

  3. I feel some veterans can use this information to their benefit-if they feel they are being given an unnecessary C & P exam.

  4. It is supposed to start from the time you request or are referred for an appointment. If you do the math and it is over 30 days, request the Choice program. Don't count on them to proactively bring up the Choice program option, however I have had them bring it up a couple of times.

  5. Gee Whiz. It takes an inspector general to figure out what we already knew.

  6. Destia22, There are many MST Survivors who don't play well with others. I am one of them. I believe it is mainly because people believe that you should be able to "Just get over it." I like to use this scenario, Say most people can close their eyes and transport themselves to permanent memories of previous Christmas or Thanksgiving Holidays. They cheerfully remember the taste of Grandma's yams, Aunt B's stuffing and even Uncle Bob's Cajun Turkey. They can remember smiles from family, friends and other pleasant events regarding those holidays for life. Now on the other hand, in an MST

  7. How in the World did you get from May 17 opt-in to a decision in just two months? This sounds like a RAMP record to me. I am a VSO in Texas........to answer your question file now for Appeal Board Lane, As I understand they will start looking at those Appeals in October 2018 as a test-run leading up to releasing the full model in February 2019. That is the way to go and the sooner you file I would assume the better and earlier your will get in front of a Judge. I would recommend asking for a Hearing....might take longer but you then get to make your case in front of a Video Judge or maybe

  8. Notice how they tout working X number of appeals, but never include metrics showing how many resulted in approval, denial, or remand? In the end, it sounds promising. Now they just need an appeal estimate tool for RO level.

  9. Start a new thread and I'd answer that Buck. I don't want to get any warning points or teach bad habits to newcomers about "taking over" a thread. Suffice it to say, after 5 years, they'd better have a darn good reason to schedule not one-but two exams- spread out over six months/year to show you have not only improved but maintained the improvement. If they don't, I win them at the BVA for not doing two exams. But with my new-found knowledge and techniques, I don't even need to get in that 4-year backlog nightmare. It's easier to spend $2 K of my client's money and get that IMO to rebut VA's

  10. Someone (VA?) is blowing smoke up your rear end. I can get anyone SC for anything at any time regardless of how many times or when they got denied or in which order. Here's a pertinent example. My Vet goes to Vietnam and loads caskets on departing C-141s at TSN for 8 months. He helps unload wounded from Dustoffs. Finally, it warps him and he begins snorting smack. The AF pulls him aside and gives him a one-time shot at rehab and a clean sheet. They evac him to Wilford Hall MC at Lackland AFB in San Antonio. He is cleaned up but his psyche is irreparably damaged. They 86 him and give him a DD
