  1. Never happen! You telling me the VA is going to practically double my compensation. That is good for a laugh. Where did you get this information? Did your local tea party give you this? We would have heard about this already. You should not publish such bullshit. It is cruel and a hoax. Actually this came from an VA insider. Someone whose given me VERY reliable information in the past.
  2. Good News folks, I have received and advanced copy of the Disability Rate Increase effective December 2010. I believe everyone will be quite pleased. H R Veterans\' Compensation COLA Adjustment ACt of 2010 (2).pdf
  3. I probably used the wrong word "New", which I suspected has always been going on. The point was for all folks to please read. I have a "very close" person who works there and they inform me of what new is coming down the pipeline. They also agree that in terms of not doing the right thing, they also believe it's done at the Rater's point and whoever is signing off has been schooled on the process. Again my point was for everyone to read those because another friend of mine had the same thing happen to her and she was about to just "let it go" she was tired of fighting, but with the help
  4. Not sure if anyone has noticed the new MO that the VA has set forth. Please be sure to check your VCAA letter thoroughly. Read it over and over and again. They are now picking through the Regs to make the Denials fit. Not fully reading the C&P exams or reading them and choosing to exclude the parts that are in your favor. I've had this happen and now my NOD is in. I don't think they will like the letter and it will be apparent that they will try to deny something else or lowball again. Remember READ, READ READ!!!
  5. Congrats!!!!! They can't beat us all.
  6. Thanks JB, I have submitted the paperwork, and you know I realize this is a stall tactic, but when I was a supervisor and I wanted to get people to do more, I would pick the person I knew would do it. Sometimes you just have to let some of these go and say "Well we won't win this one, let's move to the next." But it seems they try to win them all. That's my next step looking for an attorney. Because I was also denied the 1151, which the C&P doctor and my medical show they caused my RSD/Nerve Damage. They never cease to amaze.
  7. Bergie, I do have a copy of the C&P exam, in fact, that's what I used to quote what their doctor was saying, and I have also submitted the paperwork for DRO hearing. It just boggles the mind how they think we are all stupid. I really hope more of us VETS get on this site and use all the information provided to beat these guys. It's like war all over again. Thanks!!!!
  8. I recently got my rating back and was denied IU. Although the C&P exam Dr. wrote that I was unable to work due to my SCCs. I also sent paperwork from the treating Doctors saying I was unable to perform my duties/job. This rater also decided not to use any of the things the C&P doctor said, because it would have granted me IU. I have filed NOD, but this shows how broken this system is and why there is such a "backlog". They are so busy trying to deny us. Now I guarantee had that Doc wrote there is no reason he could not work all the information would have been used. Just MHO. Any
  9. First of all Congrats on the increase, 2nd, it was no mistake, I have noticed that is their new MO. I have also noticed that they are now doing a lot of 20% increases and making Vets appeal for the correct again. And they wonder why there is a backlog. Guess it's called Job Security. I would immediately NOD them. I'm doing the same thing as I saw where they picked through parts of the Regs to make the Denials fit or read only parts of the C&P reports when in your favor. Keep fighting!!!!
  10. Anyone know where to start looking for Tort attorneys?
  11. I have not worked since the injury. The total is 70% 30% Right Achilles Tendon Ruptures 30% RSD (Reflex sympathetic dystrophy) Right Wrist 20% Right Shoulder Fracture 10% Left Achilles Tendon Rupture 10% Fracture Right Wrist I had claimed the RSD (Nerve condition) on 1151, so they tried to just pay me as SC. And the right wrist injury which was secondary to the Achilles Tendon Rerupture. The C&P examiner wrote that the surgery was "Failed". Trying to figure out what else I need to submit. Any help? Thanks!!!!
  12. Got my brown envelope, got increase to 70%, They low balled medenied IU. Also, they denied my 1151, which the C&P examiner wrote that the surgery caused another injury and that the surgery was botched. Well I guess it's back to the drawing board.
