  • 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

Question

Hello everyone,

I just had a C&P exam done 2 days ago.

1.How long is the wait time to find out the results? Or at least an average wait time?

2. The examiner told me to mail all the papers (doctor notes) I brought in for the exam. He did review them (quickly) but is this the correct procedure?

3. Are examiners supposed to "hands on" move you in order to test your gait/flexibility when laying down? When laying down he moved my legs up/down, side to side, bent knees? He didn't do any hands on other than that though.

FYI This is my second C&P since 1998 when I did my first. This is for an change in 2 conditions (increase I hope) and to change a denial for another. I will post other questions I have on another area.

I thank you all who have shared your knowledge with the rest of us. I have observed and used the info on this site to give me knowledge in my own case and thank you all for posting your own personal experience with the VA, for better or worse.

You most liley can go to the Medical records department or FIOA office at the VA you had your c and p exam and request a copy of the exam.

Those are usually fairly easy to get.

As far as criteria for c and p exams, there is a list of exams and the criteria for each on our home page.

Aquabear:

Welcome to Hadit. Usually but not always cause the VA is anything but consistent you usually get an answer in a few weeks after the C&P. This has been my experience and many others on Hadit.

You should get a copy it will give you a heads up for the nect step in the process.

Thanks Pete53 an jbasser. Your info helps and fills in the blank spaces in my head.

During the PC exam have you heard that it is normal procedure for examiners to be "hands on" and move you in order to test your gait/flexibility when laying down?

I thought that all movement was done by the patient/examinee? But this is only my second one so I have no experience.

In case we dont chat again have a great weekend!

I believe they can do hands on as they have to measure your resistance,

but don't hold me to this.

Other's will chime in.

Last 2 C&P's Examiner had me walk staight line, toe-to-toe. For effects of my brain injury. I think also some resistance pushing on leg while pulling up.

So I guess so.

    • 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...
