    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'm still working on getting all my stuff together to file my claim. My therapist told me it would be great if i could get documentation of treatment rcvd outside of the VA. well, seeing how i have been pushing the issue aside for 20 years, i never kept records. just out of curiosity, i called the insurance company i had with fedex at one point. they had a record of a referral from 2000. wooohoooo! now if i could just remember who fedex used in the mid 90s....it just made my day to hear them say they had that pc of paper. after all these years, i may get some long over due relief. its almost as if my pain has been validated.

How long have you been out of the military? What is your disability? Have you had continuity of treatment since military? Do you have documentation in service?

These are just some of the issues that VA uses to grant claims.

Its not that bad PTSD is a horse of a different color most of your fellow vets here are very knowledgble in that area but I am not one of them. You are headed in the right direction this is a marathon and its all about preperation and that starts with evidence. The PTSD heavyweights are watching and the will speak up when you need them. Good Luck!

I don't make the rules. The VA does. I could have boosted you up but that would have been wrong of me to do. Just posting some facts dude.

Didn't mean to ruin your excitement.

    • 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...
