Review Officer:

Question

I recieved a call today from the review officer in baltimore today

advising me that after going over my files i do have loss of use but

i should forward my claim for peripheral neuropathy to the BVA because

he dosn't have the power to award loss of use for my lower extremities

I have seizure disorder 100% 50% pes planus 50% bipolar and (20% cervical 10% lumbar LowBalled) also he informed me that a doctor at the

VA stated my motor sensory neuropathy was more likely hereditary this is the first time I every heard of this...I have read in my medical records were it states head,neck and back injuries caused my being thrown from truck that is not hereditary and my seizures, radiculopathy and peripheral neuropathy I feel that is the cause and if not it could be due to my epilepsy Over the years i have had severe falls and injuries .

Where is your claim now? You can solve all your problems at the VARO if you have the evidence. You don't need a two year trip to the BVA if you have evidence to support SC for PN. What you need is medical evidence to show nexus between military injury and your PN.

Do you have family history of SN? If not I don't see how they could say it's hereditary. Just get an IMO from a specialist or whoever you see connecting your PN to your truck incident. It looks like it's pretty clear according to your medical notes you presented. You just need that IMO.

It looks as though you already are rated 100% P&T or is it TDUI? You already have the "golden egg."

Congrats on that

    • 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...
