  1. I have a c&p on Tuesday, for “neuropathy hand”, and “peripheral nerves”. I have attached a letter from one of my Dr for service connection and description of diag.. My PCP is asking me for exact codes (dx)that he can input to help with diagnosis to put in my file. I am trying to get loss of use for left hand, I am already SC for loss of use for my right. So SMC comes into place as well. I have attached a letter for any DX codes that will help.2021-02-25_092138.pdf
  2. Can someone explain to me the bilateral factor, specifically when it comes to such issues as pes planus and plantar fasciitis? If you have pronounced bilateral pes planus, they give you 50%. Does a bilateral factor apply or is it already included into the 50% award? The same question with the new rating criteria for plantar fasciitis; when it affects both feet and not responsive to treatment, they give you 30%. So if I understand it correctly, you can have bilateral pes planus and get just a straight 50%, no bilateral factor added. The same if you have bilateral plantar fasciitis. The only time you would then get a bilateral factor is if you have BOTH bilateral pes planus and bilateral plantar fasciitis. Then it would go in order of severity, in this case 50% for the pes planus + 30% for plantar fasciitis = VA math + 10% bilateral factor = Total disability rating? Thanks for replies all.
  3. RT. Shoulder 20% caused secondary Lt. Shoulder injury 20% and secondary bicep injury of 10% and 10% for rt. clavicle and 10% for scar for some reason this feels like more than 50%
