    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

Last time I saw my Primary Doc she wrote up a request or consult to help me out at home with my Meds. All of a sudden I have a Health Aid who is scheduled to come twice a week for 1 hour each visit. She is rubbing and massaging my feet and legs and making me do exercises, taking my blood pressure and temperature.

Also a nurse comes and is going to come once a week. She take vitals and does a blood glucose test and organizes my meds for a week. She says she will come every Thursday.

The Aid says that she could come more and fix meals and do light cleaning. I am a little bervous about having to worry about strangers coming into house and having to be ready for these visits although I do admit that the massages and exercises make me feel better.

One time they sent a nurse over for a short time to help me get my meds organized.

This might be the basis of a higher level of A&A! Heh, heh, it all adds up. My nurse at the VA said I needed a cane. I told her I fell down a few times. Being screwed up translates into money in VA methodology.

Pete,

This sounds good.

I do understand you being nervous about strangers coming

over and having to be ready for them.

Hopefully they are all good and won't feel like strangers for too long.

Is this approved for a certain amount of time?

If it seems to be helping you - stick with it.

John's probably right on this supporting the A&A.

Give it some more time to see how it all works out.

    • 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...
