    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

How To Obtain Stressor Coroboration

Question

filed a unemployablity claim in 2006 denied....had 60 % before filing also included was the claim for ptsd denied.... had a 60 % rated before i filed reduced 10% for sumthing i had for over 15 yrs va claimed error in a 40 % rating for leg .any how gave me service connection for (3) heniated disk 10% so award was the same 60% i thought a 70% disability rating was necessary to file for unemployability? as described by army Dr's when incident occured ie. Traumatic laceration of achilles tendon and nerves r/ leg claw foot deformity when struck/attacked by a power lawn mower from rear by unknown active duty soldier....hence i was 17@ the time delayed entry program. Dad had to fly to Missouri as I was not of age to decide..to operate etc?ie according to army? i believe the chronic pain is secondary to the injury? also substance abuse is secondary to injury and chronic pain? PTSD direct result of injury? herniated disks secondary to injury(caused by unbalanced ambulation) Plz advise where do i go from here... have been in phsy wards all over the US for suicidal ideation, anixity, depression, insomnia, flashbacks . currently seeing VA in miami behavioral clinic for meds. and emergency room doc stated PTSD? how do i obtain Stressor coroboration? is a cue involved?

You need to get the incident report from the accident. The Hospital report also will verify the stressor. Delayed entry program only counts towards pay increases. You may want to file for depression as secondary to the alreay service connected condition.

rikkor,

Welcome to Hadit.

Please do us all a favor and when posting, break it down into paragraph for.

As posted above is confusing and difficult for many of us to read. Thanks.

You are currently SC'd for what disabilities and at what percentages for each.

You say VA reduced a 10 % SC'd disability that you had been granted over

15 years ago - what was the disability? In the Rating Decision that promulgated

the reduction, what are the exact words in the Reasons and Bases Section for the reduction?

You also posted,

"i believe the chronic pain is secondary to the injury? also substance abuse is secondary to injury and chronic pain? PTSD direct result of injury? herniated disks secondary to injury(caused by unbalanced ambulation)".

What exactly have medical doctors put in your Treatment Reports and/or Progress Notes

regarding your 1) chronic pain, 2) herniated disks, 3) inbalanced ambulation

(which probably deals with your gait) - are you RX'd any prosthetics like a cane

or walker?

You say, Emergency room doc stated PTSD.

What did ER doc put on paper?

What exactly have Mental Health doctors (Psychiatrist, Psychologist, L.C.S.W.)

put in your Treatment Reports and/or Progress Notes in regards to PTSD?

Treatment report should be in your service medical records (SMRs). You can also use lay statements from individuals who knew of the incident.

    • 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...
