  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Range Of Motion And Another Question

Question

Have a quick question about the C&P range of motion. Are you supposed to stop when you feel pain? What if the examiner asks if you can go farther, do you? Even though it hurts?

If the examiner misses some questions should you politely call him on it? My examiner acted like my best friend and screwed the heck out of me by his notes.

I got as far as I can go then I say that's all your getting not to be mean but you are not crippling me to break records on my range of motion and when it hurts either you can't do it or you do it as far as you can but for my condition I stop as it goes in to the red or the pain gets worse because I am the one who has to live with the pain when I leave there and you remember they think you are a contortionist when you go in for your c&p.

Yoggie, what did you ask them? When does the feeling return to your legs??

That is still number 1 in my book.

Yes, take a check list with you a long with your wife or someone this is an attempt to keep them honest, also you must do the range of motion or they will fill in the blanks them selves and you wont like the results.....Just to add what I posted earlier....

Yes as a Joke I asked when the the feeling would return to my legs and it got very serious because he thought he had just hurt me badly and before I could tell him it was a joke he was gone to get a real doc to assist him because he thought he had screwed me up ROYALLY and when he got back with the Doc I explained it was a joke and the real Doc lost it. He was laughing so hard he had the giggles and couldn't even talk because the play doctor freaked.. Yog

I wasn't meaning to imply that I wouldn't do the test. I just went all the way even though I was in a lot of pain because I thought that is what I was supposed to do. My compliant was spine condition and he didn't ask me half the questions.

Thanks for the help. Have a private doctor appointment on the 11th and after that I will be filing a NOD, or request for reconsideration. Whatever it's called. B)

Move as far as you can, but stop at the point of "real" pain. If they tell you to go farther, tell them to go to hell.

    • 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...
