  1. thx all.....I can swear that I read a law that says the VA has a duty to provide complete medical exams for claims but maybe I am wrong. I am thankful for all of you who responded, I will keep you posted on my results.
  2. thank you GBArmy...

  3. I won my CUE but the VA gave me 0% from 2004 - 2009, then 10% 2009 to current. Is there a CFR that the VA must provide complete medical exams during C & P's...I got the 0% because the VA said I did not have xrays. I think they should have provided xrays during the C & P...I had to pay for my own xrays in 2009...I won the CUE because the VA said in there 2004 decision, in their Statement of Case that I failed to go to that C & P....I provided a copy of that C & P where I was diagnosed with several disabilities; High blood pressure Chronic low back strain Chro
  4. I filed in 2009....but I thought that since the VA found it in 2004 it would be granted then???
  5. thx for responding Berta...the docket number is 14-02 999...here is what it says exactly.. On service examination in March 2004, the Veteran's blood pressure was 135/57. A VA examiner noted in March 2010 that the Veteran's hypertension was less likely than not caused by his service. However, a VA examination report from August 2004, within 1 year of the Veteran's service separation, contains a diagnosis of essential hypertension and indicates that 3 blood pressure readings at that time were 110 diastolically. Under 38 CFR 4.104, Diagnostic Code 7101 (2014), this was hypertension manifest to a
  6. do you know where I can find the law on the 110%...not sure if I should file a NOD on the connection date and back pay...or request re-consideration?
  7. The BVA granted me service connection for hypertension with "3 blood pressure readings of 110 diastolically" from 2004. My local office here in Florida gave me 10% from 2010. I thought I read somewhere that a 110 diastolic reading was 20%? Also, if the order from the BVA says 2004 why wouldn't my local office show service connection from 2004, rather than 2010 as they have? jhilly

  9. thx john999....do you recommend one??? do most of them charge like civil ones do, 33%???
  10. I had a c & p in Aug 2004 when I returned from Iraq. I was told that the ringing in my ears is tinnuitus and I complained of hearing loss. I didn't know that was a claim and then the VA denied all my claims in Nov 2004 falsely saying I failed to appear for the c & p. I was never given a hearing test. I thought that was it. After receiving advice I later re-opened my case om 2010. The VA granted me a hearing test which shows hearing loss. Now the VA is saying it is unable to tell when I loss my hearing. Do I have a case because the VA never assisted me in 2004 with this claim a
  11. just rcv'd a letter from the DRO that my Form 9 has been "certified" and is being sent to the BVA....Im hearing that it will take another 4 - 5 years???
  12. are there separate forms to file an appeal to the BVA and NOD to the local office? if so, how can I get an outline to start working on my appeals?
