  1. I don't think an attorney is going to help you fill out the forms for a claim. It is my understanding that an attorney can't collect any money from you unless they represent you in front of the BVA. I don't think you want to pay an attorney their hourly rate to help you fill out the claim form. You can lots of free help here.

  2. well the virginia department of veteran services have them on retainer to ask questions. if you need to appeal, to the VBA, they will get a lawyer to accompany you(i had one at my hearing with the Judge) and it is free!

  3. @Foxhound6 Did you get your HLR decision back? I just contacted the VA, and the representative told me that mine is "ready for a decision so should be anytime now". I tried not to laugh....

  4. The Virginia Department of Veterans Services advocates for Virginia veterans and connects them to earned benefits and services they have earned. Information on current federal, state and local veterans’ programs, entitlements and referral services is available in Virginia through a network of 26 benefit service offices. All services are provided free of charge. http://www.dvs.virginia.gov/benefits/

  5. Go to the Virginia Department of Veteran Services. they have lawyers on retainer and will help you out man. dont waste your time with DAV or VFW. i tried them both in the past and couldnt even get a return phone call. guy i work with now calls me back pretty much the same day if not the next every time! he always returns my emails. if you live in virginia, and you want a VSO, this is the way!

  6. Okay guys and girls, gather round the fire. This is a bit of a read, but THIS is the best private doctor submitted opinion Ive come across while Ive been 'on the inside'. Most of the ones I see are a paragraph or two, wishy washing around about the condition, and the doctors opinion- with no WHY, other than "I'm the doctor, and I examined them and this is why I think so.....". That doesn't really cut it. Yes, I know that C and P docs don't do anything this extensive, either, most of the time, and I can't defend that either, but this particular condition that they are claiming is already thorny

  7. If A Veteran don't have good representation he can go to the BVA past decisions of record *BVA DOCKETTS) past cases FIND A Dockett/Case that the Veteran won his claim with that best fits in with what he/she is claiming. Read it get the CFR# that make the favorable statements to what they are claiming and past cases that have been approved by the board & THE VETERAN WON HIS CASE it will help Veterans, it may take a lot of reading on the Veterans part but it will certainly give him/her an insight of what or how they want or need to make their statement or their point of

  9. I would fire that MH provider. I would start with the Veterans Advocate and request thru him/her a new provider. State specifically what was wrong. There is a lot to be said for 63 Charlie's advise, if you can afford it. The main reason is if you are continuously seeking treatment, even from an outside source, you'll be ok providing you are submitting those treatment records to the VA system. If they aren't favorable, you don't down load them into ebenefits, but you have the option to go out and get a new provider who is on the same page with you. The main thing is you are in control.

  10. Allan Eddy Well if you are really unhappy that there were inconsistencies in the exam, contact your RO and tell them why you believe your exam was in adequate and that you want a new one right away. Write down what was not asked or done depending on your disabilities and symptoms. They may have broken off your new disability claim and it is being evaluated separately, more than likely. Be specific in what they missed. For example, you went for an increase on your knee. The examiner didn't use a tool to examine your flex but just did a visual. You can't get a copy directly from the contractor.

  12. Hey, I've been on LTD for about two years due to mental illness & chronic pain. I had done multiple surgeries to treat endometrial cancer, which has left me disabled from work. My psychiatrist had helped me out with the medical questionnaire since my physician was reluctant to doing so. But I received a letter from my insurer saying that they need my physician to fill out a questionnaire for them; if not, they would cut off my benefits. Later, I asked them to send the forms to my doctor; however, I didn't follow up on that. Now they have been withholding my claim for three months. Do I h

  14. Not sure about any legal resources but you can have your psychiatrist refer you to a medical physician and request an IMO (INDEPENDENT MEDICAL OPINION). Even if you contact a lawyer, they are going to need a medical opinion of your condition and your ability to work. If this is a military disability you can always put in for an increase. Also, you can have your psychiatrist refer you to a VOC Rehabilitation Specialist for a Vocational Occupation Opinion of your working ability and submit that to your insurance. Others may chime in.
