    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Question

Hello all I have been reading through these threads for a few days and have not seen any one on here with my same situation. So here is my story I entered Navy boot camp last December and was separated In March of this year. While in boot camp I got injured. The doctor told me i had 6 stress fractures.after this i started having problems with knee they also told me i have flat feet which i never knew. After being on medical hold i returned back to a division for a weekend and i was told i will have to go back to medical hold because my knee worsen. I ended up getting medical separated for flat feet. after i put up a fight because they where not sure how long it will take me to fully heal. i was told by someone that i should file a claim with the va because when i returned home i walked with a limp and could not walk or stand for 5 mins with out needed to rest. i was awarded 10% for knee pain and 0 for both left and right tibial stress reaction which the c&p doctor calls posteerior tibialis tendinitis. which all are service connected. I am not trying to beat the system or anything i know techinially speaking i never became a sailor. All i really want is medicial help so i can go back to doing the things i love in life which is cooking which i also have a degree in. My knee is still in constant pain i can not wear shoes most days of the week because it causes my feet to sweell and hurt. I still can not walk or stand for long with out rest. when i say long i mean your avergae 5 - 10 min. When i went to the C&p exmam the doctor look at me as if i was lying when i told him the promblems but with out any medical eveidence besides my boot camp records its hard to do anything. I did not have any health insurance and i just found out that i can start going to see my knee. any advice on what else i can do to help me. Like i said all i really want is to be able to do the simple things and be able to fully persue my cooking and right now i can't do that.

BDD = Benefits Dilevery at Discharge, something like that.

PEB = Physical Examination Board, something like that.

MEB = Medical Evaluation Board, something like that.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
