Question

About a month ago, while riding my scooter to the local 7-11 store, I was going down a slight down grade, when the brakes locked up and tore up the drive gears. After I reported the incident to my Prothetics Dept who handles such things, they told me they had to decide if they would fix my old scooter or trade it out for a new one. After not hearing from them in a week, I called to find out what they had decided. They decided to trade out my old and damaged one for another.

I was told it would take about four to six weeks for my new scooter to arrive, yet it arrived today only about three weeks since they had given me the time table for its arrival. I had half expected it to be another used unit but newer than my old one, but it was a brand new Legend XL with a whole lot of bells and whistles on it and boy it it a pretty candy apple red.

Now I feel like getting dressed up when ever I ride it. I look out of place like a new suite and wearing tennis shoes. LoL

It's had a high and low gear, plus a power adjustment, turn signals and emergency flashers, head lamp of course, a horn although not as loud as I would want, is at least half again louder than my old unit, and the suspention is a whole lot better too. I only wished the charging unit was a part of the scooter instead of a seperate unit. I'll have to fine a way to properly carry and store the charging unit, so if need be, I won't be stuck someplace should my charge run low.

Just thought I might share this tid bit of info. The VAHA isn't all bad yet.

Great to hear Jim. Red is the color you need. Bright and shinny. Why aren't you getting any disability? Noticed you have 0% listed, are you getting a pension instead? I hope so. Be careful and watch out sometime people can't see red cars so you might be extra careful. Enjoy buddy.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
