  • 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

Nod Done

Question

Finished the NOD today. I know I schould have done it a while ago but was so made I trew it in the closet and forgot about it. When I read thru it today and seeen they did not even look at the medical records from the VAMC got a little pissed off

Jim

So what do you guys and girls think I value your judgement

Dear Sir

Reply to xxxxxxxxxxx

1, I received a rating decision dated 2 August 2008. Consider this letter to be an official “Notice of Disagreement” (NOD) regarding the following Decision. I am requesting a DE NOVO review by a new Decision review officer. I wish that the new Decision review officer use Sec. 4.3 Resolution of reasonable doubt. It is the defined and consistently applied policy of the Department of Veterans Affairs to administer the law under a broad interpretation consistent, however, with the facts shown in every case. When after careful consideration of all procurable and assembled data, a reasonable doubt arises regarding the degree of disability such doubt will be resolved in favor of the claimant

2. My shoulder, Sinusitis and back condition have gotten worse. I received all of my treatment both scheduled and emergency room at the VA Medical center in Hampton Virginia. Yet when I look at the list of evidence used to decide my case my records from the VA medical records are not included/

3. My claim for tension headaches was decided without a C+ P exam or a review of my medical records at the VA medial center in Hampton

4. I have no other records other then the ones at the VA medical center please expedite this claim I have enclosed a copy of my DD form 215 which shows I am a Veteran of the Global war on terrorism

5. I fully intend to continue to appeal any further denials of this claim

V/R

Run it through spell check a couple of typos. Don't take this wrong but you need more evidence to get the VARO to take a second look. Perhaps you should go to the hearing. Take a good look at your C&P it will tell you if you need your own IMO.

Ask your Doc at VA to help you.

Get the IMO. You want to just destroy them with your evidence. You don't want to depend on benefit of doubt because you won't get it.

thats the problem the only C+P exam I got was for my sinuistis which went from 0 to 10 percent. All I want them to due is look at my medical records from there own Drs.

I receive 10 percent for cervical spondyloarthrothropathy. I don't know what that means I claimned neck and schoulder pain. Thats what they told me it was. I just know its gottem worse know up to 4 pills a day of oxicodine so I can get my butt to work

    • 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...
