    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

Complex Mingraine

Question

Recieving 20% for HTN, suffered a stroke 8 weeks ago, had several since TIA's which now they tell me I having Complex's Mingraine which leaves paralysis on my right side up to 3 hours at a time. Any ideas on the rating on this? Now 8 weeks after the stroke I vary from 50%-90% as for recovery. When my body stresses I'm at the worst. Going to the VA tomorrow. Have not been to work in over 8 weeks, almost out of leave.Also been in and out of the hospital those 8 weeks.

Have you filed a claim for them?

These would be a slam dunk and immediatly ask for IU . Also consider your retirement options fromthe USPS.

Disability under fers is fairly quick.

Time to make plans. You will never be your old self again.

I file tomorrow with the VA. I have to look into my options with fers and the USPS. I'm not sure if thier still have the early retirement at 50 still. Just got all the medical records copied today and briefly talked to a DAV Rep. I'll find out more tomorrow. This just has me so worried, heard so many bad stories. This stroke has really changed my life.

Went to DAV got interviewed and he filed the claim. He wants me to have my doctor to write a letter that

1. State that the stroke and migraine is secondary to HTN.

2. All residuals that I have after the stroke.

3. Alittle bio of her self.

He mention if may take any where up to 9 -16 months!

If you have to quit working USPS make sure that your records state that your medical problems are affecting your ablility to continue working are the reasons for leaving.

Good luck!

    • 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...
