  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Multiple Sclerosis & Coolvests

Recommended Posts

I thought I was going to have to get a referal to see a neurologist for one of these coolvests.

Any heat over 80 degrees makes me very sick, so i'm hoping this will help.

I wanted to share with MS vets how simple & quick I recieved this.

Last Monday I asked my VAMC PCP for one. He said he would check into what they are & see if he could get me one.

One week later I recieved one in the mail.

All I can say is thank you VA for this type of care & hope Vets with multiple sclerosis will look into this if they are having trouble with heat.

What is a cool vest? Sounds like something that I need.

It's a blue sports vest that covers your torso & has pockets for frigerator packs to keep you cool in the heat. There are sheets of 2.5" X 2.5" pillows of jell that come with it to put in the fridge.

I hope it keeps me from getting sick at the lake or river when we're out with the grandkids. As it is now, I try not to be outside during the day.

    • 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...
