  • 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

1st C & P Exam Coming Up In Two Weeks!


Re: Prostate Cancer summary

In July 2000, PSA was 26. Biopsies showed Gleason of 7 4+3.

Radical prostatectomy 8/31/2000

August 2003, PSA had risen to lever to warrant Radiation treatments.

Sept 2003 thru Oct 2003 - 37 treatments over 51 days.

I did not know about AO presumptive conditions concerning Prostate cancer until I met someone on the golf course two months ago.

I sent my claim in on July 10, 2009.

Shortly after sending the claim in I met with Service Rep. and submitted a statement in support of my claim to cover some other bases and residual issues I have been left with.

I am already scheduled for my C & P exam down in Tucson on Sept 2.

At the same time I received a packet in the mail asking for evidence for a lot of things I already gave them. Is this pretty normal procedure for them?

Alot of the areas I requested compensation for I, as I'm sure alot of others, just don't discuss with their doctors. Such as: incontinence, ED, and other digestive and bowel issues that were a direct result of the radiation treatments. I have just learned over time what not to eat and when or when not to travel, and what fiber supplements help.

I intend on going to see my Service Rep again immediately this week concerning some of these issues.

But, I was wondering if someone on this forum can tell me what to expect at this C & P exam, and what kind of paperwork, if any should I bring with me.

On the subject of ICD (Ischemic Heart Disease), I have been being treated for High cholesterol since the early 90's. I had angioplasty and a Stent placed in one artery in 1996. I do not know if this is also something I should be requesting compensation for, as well as hypertension.

I'll appreciate any info anyone has from their experience.

    • 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...
