    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

Ptsd C&p Exam

Question

Well this old Marine Vietnam combat veteran had the C&P today for PTSD, Dr. seemed pleasent, only asked about one stressor incident the normal "what happened". Asked about enemy combatants whether mostly VC or NVA, how they were dressed and what type of weapons they used, told him VC dressed in black pajamas and carried either an SKS or AK47 or whatever they had available. He talked to my wife about the nightmares and the other problems like always vigilant, jumpy, grumpy etc. Asked how long we have been married, told him since 2001 but wife knew me when I came back from Vietnam so he really started asking her about my mental then and now, she told him the only difference is the PTSD "ruined his life and he is older" but he still has the very same problems. He asked about work history, told him have had 10 different jobs in the last 5 years because I keep getting fired due to "challenging my superiors" Session only lasted 40 minutes, when it was over he shook my hand and stated "Thank you for your service to your Country". Guess we'll see where it goes from here!!

It sounds as though you had a typical c-p exam, albeit it being typical he seemed pro-veteran. I hope it is in your favor.

"Guess we'll see how it goes from here." I've heard that one before from an examiner. Next thing I knew he lied about my treatment history. Good luck on yours though and the sooner you get a copy of your exam the better.

gotta think positive though.

    • 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...
