  1. I have an attorney appealing my TDIU claim. I want to know if l can I file a secondary claim for my back and hips as a result of my TKRs ? Do submit the claim myself or do I need to go through the attorney? Can filing a claim during an appeal upset the appeal process? Thanks
  2. What are the proper procedures to request a copy of my c file? Thanks
  3. I have hired an attorney and want to know if I or he can receive my file faster? Also has anyone went this route and what is about the average time line for an attorney to submit an appeal on your behalf? Thanks
  4. Thanks, All The Way. I was rated at 30% after the temp 100%. My range of motion and flexion is no problem. There's just a constant pain that is kicking my but and none of the meds relieves it. My Orthopedic Dr is very good, but I can't seem to get the C&P examiners to understand about the pain. Revision maybe my only option, I just wanted to know if the VA pays the temp 100% after the revision surgery. Is there a reg that covers revision surgery? Thanks for all your help.
  5. What is the VA process as far as pay for revision surgery. After surgery two years ago I was rated at 100% for a year. I'm having problems with my TKR and the Dr may have to revisit. If he has to replace some of all of the knee do you receive 100% temp again?z
  6. Thanks pacmanx1, my SSDI letter states that " There are no jobs that exist in significant numbers in the national economy that the claimant could perform". Should I appeal to the board with option 2, so that I can submit more evidence? Such as IMO etc.
  7. Can anyone comment on post I posted yesterday at 2:45 yesterday. I tried to upload decision letter. Thanks
  8. I received my denial letter. In the evidence it doesn't mention SSDI, I sent the award letter with the packet. The SSA states that my knees are the only reason I'm receiving SSDI. I also put in my right knee for secondary because they replaced it when they did my left knee which was SC at the time. They didn't mention the right TKR, they mention palpation and patella tendon, but it has been replaced and that's what I stated on my claim. When I submitted my TDIU I was rated at 30% left TKR and 50% major depressive disorder, I ask for a secondary on my right TKR on a separate claim. They combine
  9. I'm not technically proficient with computers. How can I up load a copy of denial letter to get some feedback? I don't have a scanner.
  10. Are appeals just long in general or does it depends on the evidence you are submitting and what route you are talking on your appeal? Is it best to get an attorney during this process? I've been reading and it seems daunting.
  11. How do I show that the failure of my right knee was caused by the injury I sustain to my left knee. I injured my left knee during a bridging accident in Bosnia in 2001. I had Surgery to fix the damage in 2002 at Fort Gordon. It was never the same and got worse causing me to put more weight on my right knee. In 2010 the VA sent me to have orthocopic surgery on both knees and they assigned a 10% rating to my left knee but nothing for the right knee. In 2018 the VA replaced both knees and assigned a final 30% rating for the left knee only. What options do I have as I was denied a secondary claim?
  12. I reviewed my 21-8940 and it ask if you receive Disability Retirement Benefits. Is that the same as SSDI? I marked no in that box , but I sent a copy of my award letter with my TDIU packet. Should I file a NOD and submit that as new evidence or what route should I take? I'm sorry if I'm asking too many questions. I've learned a lot in these last 2 days from all of your comments. I should've joined earlier, but I'm technology illiterate. What forms do I use or should I go to a VSO. They weren't much before I got this far on my own. Thinking about an attorney, what do you know about Hill and Pon
  13. If I file a NOD do I need to bring it to their attention that there was no mention of SSDI in the evidence section of my decision. How do I no if they considered it?
  14. I checked my decision letter again and as I said before there is no mention of SSDI anywhere in the evidence section. I know that the VA had it because I sent the judge's ruling as a part of my packet. I appreciate all of your help, but I'm new at this. I've gotten myself this far but now I need assistance. I've got to look up all of the abbreviations you used to further understand. I have no way to scan my decision letter is there any other way? What is the difference between CUE and NOD, and do they both require new evidence?
  15. I haven't worked since 2009 and was awarded SSDI in 2014. When I filed for TDIU I included my award letter from the SSA. There is no mention of SSDI or SSA in the evidence that the VA used to make their decision. I know they had it because I included it in my claims packet. The awards letter states vocational expert opinion and only include my service connected condition as the reason for me being granted SSDI. Should I see this in the evidence the VA used to make their decision?
