    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

Question

I went looking for a cardiologist to do an IMO for me as i have less than three weeks to submit new evidence before dead line before the board makes it's final ruling.While on my journey to find a doctor i thought i found a lawyer that was willing to help me.I sent him all of my medical records and he basically said that my claim would be exceedingly hard to prove.I will post the email that he sent to me.It was not encouraging to say the least.My claim is suppose to be heading back to the RO for an exam that was not given which had been ordered by admin law judge in a remand.The AMC said that the ratings officer was wrong to rate my claim again with out giving the exam.I figured i'd bought enough time to go in search of a good IMO.However i don't have the kind of money that it takes for Dr.Bash and one other Dr. i called out of Texas.Down here in st.pete fl there aren't a lot of social security lawyers that use IME's or they are not willing to give me the names of the ones that they use so i could at least approach them and ask for an IMO.Is it something that i am doing wrong or am i dead because i don't have a couple of grands lying around to get that IMO.

I went looking for a cardiologist to do an IMO for me as i have less than three weeks to submit new evidence before dead line before the board makes it's final ruling. While on my journey to find a doctor i thought i found a lawyer that was willing to help me.I sent him all of my medical records and he basically said that my claim would be exceedingly hard to prove.I will post the email that he sent to me.It was not encouraging to say the least.

My claim is suppose to be heading back to the RO for an exam that was not given which had been ordered by admin law judge in a remand. The AMC said that the ratings officer was wrong to rate my claim again with out giving the exam. I figured i'd bought enough time to go in search of a good IMO.However i don't have the kind of money that it takes for Dr.Bash and one other Dr. i called out of Texas.Down here in st.pete fl there aren't a lot of social security lawyers that use IME's or they are not willing to give me the names of the ones that they use so i could at least approach them and ask for an IMO.Is it something that i am doing wrong or am i dead because i don't have a couple of grands lying around to get that IMO.

If the BVA "remand" ordered an Examination, but the AMC did not follow BVA remand instructions (they often don't), then your issue should be that: the AMC failed to provide a medical exam. That's the evidence you need to send to the BVA. IMO. ~Wings

In Orlando, check out a Dr. within the Florida hospital system by the name of Dr. Todd Hardy. He did my IMO back in 1998 and was my privet Dr. from 1996 to 2001. He is a veteran also. One warning to you, he will tell you strait-up and frankly if he does not think you have a claim. So with that, if you truly feel your heart condition is service connect- contact him.

    • 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...
