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?
