    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

Va C&p Audiologist And Va Ent And Va Treating Audiologist Disagree

Recommended Posts

C&P doctor ignored my MOS and testimony in orginal claim, the C&P examiner gave the opinion in that my hearing loss and tinnitus from old age at age 58. After two years, 2 NODS and 6 audiomoligy visits later, got a different opinion from VA ENT and VA treating audiologist, that hearing loss is from acoustical trauma (loud noise) many years ago. I now have hearing aid being made. I fill an urge to reopen my claim, of course I will lose all my back pay if I get sc'd on this condition because I got pnuemonia right after the SSOC, was very sick, hospitalized and screwed up and reponded with my NOD 6 days late over the new 30 days deal. Got another SSOC saying we have decided not to accept your NOD due to timeliness. It would have went back to 06 if granted. What a killer!

:P Danang 1969, I had a C & P Hearing about a month ago for hearing loss and tinnutis. I'm still waiting for the results. I got a copy of the report yesterday, and the examiner mentioned the tinnutis was caused by working around the noisy P-3 aircraft. The reort states"Regarding his left ear (deaf in right), Veteran should be given the doubt as he does have hearing loss in his left ear. It is as least likely as not as not that Veterans left ear hearing loss was contributed to by military noise experience. Also have a new program that works with an I-Pod - plays 4 songs - two classical and two new age - that have a scratching type noise in it. She says that it trains the brain to block out the ringing. Very expensive to VA, and must use two hours daily for eight months

I have listened to classical music from time to time and I haven't ever noticed any improvement in the tinnitis. I don't know about that tinnintis prescription, what do you think about this? The VA audiologist told me as soon as my hearing aid was made and I wore it awhile it would help my tinnitis some.

    • 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...
