    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

Welcome aboard, and know that you are not the only one this has happened to. Please post their reasons and basis for denial so we can pick this thing apart with you.

the main reason there saying i was denied was i was a barber when i had my bypass, in 06 and i quit working and havent looked for work, it says my cad is noted that it effects my ability to engage in physical employment,and no effect to engage in sedentary employment. it says the va physician noted that my ptsd causes me severe impairment in my ability to maintain employment, but i do not have total occupational and social impairment due to my ptsd .and at the end it says a high rating in itself is a recognition that the impairment makes it difficult to keep employment. i owned my barber shop, and sold it ,i cant stand up all day with my arms in the air , i went to barber college, but i only have a 9th grade education, and barber shops dont make you fill out applications, but since my last heart attack 8 weeks ago,i was in the va hospitial for 4 days and they did a heart cath and told me 1 of my grafts had blocked and killed my heart where the artery was and cant be fixed, and i also have blockages in my legs called pad .the va sent me this month to a c&p doctor and he also told me i have a surgical hernia from my chest to my belly button, i also have sleep apnea ,i would have thought my 70%sc ptsd would have been good enough for iu. and now i have light heart attacks 2 times a week the va told me i would eventully be on oxygen, thanks, and i hope theres something in here we can pick apart.

i know now why i was denied, because the va said i was able to do sedintary work, i just went to my va primary care doctor for my yearly physical and he put it on record that i can not do any type of gainfull employment due to my sc conditions, i am 90%sc now ,i had a 4 bypass open heart in 06, just had anouther heart attack feb 09 ,they did a heart cath and told me 1 of the bypass grafts had blocked and killed my heart where the artery went ,and cant be fixed, they also went into my legs and told me i have blockages and my vascular system looked like rotten bicycle inertubes, i have ptsd 70% sc and coronary heart disease 60%sc , they denied my sleep apnea as sc i have reaplied for that since i did the sleep study after my open heart surgery in 06 i was found to have sleep apnea and put on a cpap unit, they told me at the va regional office they have my sleep apnea rated as 50% nsc, and i have asked for a increase for my heart due to the damage from the artery that cant be fixed, and pad for my legs. thanks for reading

    • 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...
