    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

C & P Exam Diagnosis

Question

First let me give a little back ground, I have had knee pain, ankle pain, back and neck pain, and a digestive disorder for about 10 years now. I just recently filed a claim with va 3 years removed from service. I was diagnosed in the military with numerous sprained ankle and later chronic ankle pain and attended physical therapy. I was also diganosis with ITB strain of the knee. Also was chronic mechanical neck pain which I also attend physical therapy and was given a TENS unit, and finally gastoenteritis.

The va doctor for my C & P diagnosed knee tendinitis, ankle tendinitis, early degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine, and Irritable bowel syndrome. He said that all 4 conditions were at least as likely as not to be service connected.

Are these conditions compensatable? Does it look good or bad based on the diagnosis?

Thanks in adavance your your responses.

Yes, they are.

You could not ask for a better C&P for all of them.

"The va doctor for my C & P diagnosed knee tendinitis, ankle tendinitis, early degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine, and Irritable bowel syndrome."

After another ongoing discussion on the hadit board today, I would advise you to file SEPERATE claims for each of the above.

You can go to the official Dept of Veterans Affairs site on the internet and file online, using what they call VONAPPS.

If you have any questions as to what to put in any of the applications, just minimize the VONAPPS on your screen and get on here and ask, we'll be glad to help you out. You can also "save" the VONAPPS application(s) and come back to it/them anytime within, like 30 days, I believe it is.

MAKE SURE AND REFERENCE YOUR CURRENT DISABILITIES WITH THE SERVICE MEDICAL RECORDS OF YOURS THAT REFER TO THESE PROBLEMS IN THE SERVICE AND MAKE SURE AND TELL THE VA, ON YOUR VONAPPS APPLICATIONS, THAT YOU HAVE HAD C&P FOR EACH OF THE APPLIED FOR DISABILITIES, WHEN YOU HAD THE C&P AND WHERE YOU HAD THE C&P................sometimes ya gotta take these folks by the hand and lead them through the day, doncha know.

It sounds real good for getting SC'ed for these conditions. I think since you already had your C&P for all these conditions the best thing to do is just wait. It will probably not be long before you get decisions. The only questions will be the precentage ratings you get for each condition. When you filed your original claim did you file for all four of these conditions, or did the doctor take it on his own to say they were service connected? Either way the C&P doctor has made the case for you for SC.

You are just in shock over that federal court decision about denying claims and not telling the vet. That is pretty shocking.

You got that right. And, yes, I'm shocked. Just when you think that you have seen or heard some of the most ridiculous things.........ooooops, along comes our VA.

I'm so shocked that I don't even want to pet my dog........

    • 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...
