Submitted multiple claims in 96'
I was told nothing in from VA office multiple times.
Fast forward to May 2017, I visited VA again. They scheduled physical exam and was given a 10% disability. Based on my prior claim for only 1 of my issues.
I was back paid from 96' but all other claims were denied. I went back to appeal and was told that there wasn't a "time limit" even knowing my papers said i had 1 year to appeal.
I came into active duty with a prior jaw injury, while in service I had a complete reconstruction of upper jaw with bone grafts from hip and 4 implants to upper maxilla which took over 2 years to complete.
This is now causing me pain and smelly discharge from my implants, What can i do since i missed my 1 year window of appeal?
I also want to appeal the 10% rating...What would you guys recommend?
