  1. I’ve got another one in the works. My lawyer submitted it after he noticed it; Status of Your Claim Submitted: 06/21/2018 (Compensation) Estimated Completion: 09/19/2018 - 11/25/2018 Estimated Completion InfoTooltip with additional information Disabilities Claimed: CLAIM FOR CLEAR AND UNMISTAKABLE ERROR FOR FAILURE TO GRANT SERVICE CONNECTION FOR RIGHT HAND ARTHRITIS ON AN AUGUST 1998 RATING DECISION (Reopen) Representative for VA Claims: CHUCK R PARDUE Current Status: Gathering of Evidence I can take a picture or scan the decision letter back in 98 in which I claimed pain in my right hand. The VA In their infinite wisdom looked at my little finger that got crushed and never examined my pain in hand claim. After reviewing my smr it states that I complained about it and they diagnosed my hand with arthritis x 5 months. Here is the evidence on my CUE;
  2. As I said in another thread, I have a doctor that did my DBQ and he worded it as (due to or aggravated by)! The (aggravated by) is the wording that I have researched to be affective in explaining the connection between SA and your existing condition. This is going to be secondary to my depression and anxiety with medication and also my back condition. I was not even aware of SA while I was in the army and not until a few years ago. This is why it would be better to connect it to my present conditions. Yes, I do think I had it while I was in because of my loud snoring and other soldiers making fun of it but, since I never complained ( I wouldn’t have even known about SA) about it in my SMR it would be next to impossible to connect it that way.

  4. Hey hamslice, first of all thanks for taking the time to do this for me. I appreciate you spending the time! I see you figured in the bilateral factor, but why only once? Maybe you did it twice and I just can’t tell where the other is (math was my enemy)!!!! I have two bilateral factors, knees and leg nerves. The whole reason I even bought this up is, I hired a lawyer Thursday and when we met, he mentioned that my percentages didn’t look like they added up right. I guess it was just wishful thinking on my part. LOL Thanks guys for all the help!!
  5. When is the bilateral factor figure in?
  6. I got 83 without bilateral ! Isnt 20&20=36+10 bilateral and 10&10=19+10 bilateral?
  7. Buck, is that with the bi-lateral factor figured in?
  8. Ok I think that the VA is adding up my disabilities wrong if I’m doing this right, but I’m not sure, so could one of you guys please help me with this please? Here’s my disabilities 50 MDD 20 BACK 20 R leg nerve 20 L leg nerve 10 L knee 10 R knee 10 Sacroiliac 10 BP VA IS BEEN PAYING ME AT 80%!!! This isn’t right is it? They forgot to figure in combining of the nerves and knees right?

    Giving Up is Success for Me

    Lol, yeah, like bringing a knife to a gun fight! Making my PTSD, PTSDX2!!!! I know that it’s a big game for them but, I’m going to let the guys with the degrees shoot for awhile! My last C&P was the last straw! I’m going for the IME’s from someone with more clout to shoot down the NP’s opinion. Bull- - - - !!!!! That’s all it is!! I just wish we could hold them responsible for their incompetence!! For instance, 2015 x-ray for my neck said bulging disks but disk space equal in distance. Fast forward to 2016 MRI says disk bulging with congenital disk fusion! Really no joke! It’s just crazy incompetence!!! Like I said, time for the big guns!!!!

    Giving Up is Success for Me

    This is my SUCCESS STORY!!!! I’m through with the fighting!!! I can’t do this anymore! I don’t want to fight the va and their screwed up system on my own! I hired an attorney to do this for me. He works with a Doctor that does IME’s and said that with all the information and paperwork I have, 100% is very good. I should have listened to my wife and did this years ago!(23years of fighting) The attorney works on a 20% contingency basis which in my book is well worth the headache and heartache!!!! I will have to pay for the IME’s upfront but with this attorneys win rate and positive ratings it’s worth the shot. I want to thank all of the great people who for many years have provided me with great information and advice! Without your help I would be crazier than I am right now and still sitting at 30% instead of the 80% percent. Again I’m done, but not through! The war is with a stronger and smarter army now! Thanks again for everyone’s help!!! I’ll keep you posted on things!!!!

  13. Tiffany, you should remove your name and other pertinent information from your post. You never know what information people can use!!!
  14. Ok, help me out here please! I just saw another Vets disability ratings and I’m confused about how he got what he got! Can you claim different nerve root radiculopathy in each leg? I guess you can but, how do you get it separated into each different nerve roots? Look at the second rating with different nerves rated. Then look at my ratings for the same radiculopathy but it doesn’t define which nerve is impeded. How can you get these nerves separated into two different ratings?
