    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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

Federal Tort Claim


Mcafee

Question

Hello All Hope All Is Well

If not to much trouble I need an Attorney whom can handle this ,reason I have contacted all (VA) Various Agencies sent correspondence to substantate my claims and yet they have been dismissed Ignored Redirected my Favorite,or just plain no reply.

This is NON PRODUCTIVE to say the least?I also contacted HOUSE SUBCOMITTEE in WASHINGTON DC and they too have not responded.

The VAMC Refuses to Address falsified Consults,Progress Notes, Examinations,Sleep Studies,Mental Health,Orthopedic,ETC I think you get the idea.

I also sent this amendment of record to General Counsel the only thing I have recived is that in process no correspondence.

According to a Mr K Pierce at the VHA for the Under Secretary due to unresolved concernsto file a FEDERAL TORT CLAIM and let the attorneys handle it UNQUOTE.

Which have a reflection of rating and entitlement reason VARO utilizes these records for DECISION before any other documentation is even considered.

Thank you all for your Input

The recent US CAVC case Cushman and Shenseki might help you-as the veteran proved at least one medical entry had been falsifed and his claim is on remand.

Also if the VA lost critical evidence for your claim you can write to them citing the October Incident. The procedure for these letters is at VA WAtchdog and also on the VA web site.

I regret I dont understand the basis of your FTCA claim and can only advise googling lawyers and continuing to seek one who would help you.

You can certainly file the FTCA yourself.After 20 NY lawyers turned me down I filed FTCA and succeeded without their help.

However that was a malpractice claim.In those days -pre google- I could not find the specific type of lawyer I needed.Google has made that easy these days.

There is plenty of info on FTCA on the net as to the types of FTCA claims.

I think lawyers are turning you down possibly because they do not foresee any money damages.

Regardless of FTCA or not- you should continue to appeal your VA claims and try to seek the evidence they ask for in the VCAA letters.

If you were refused VAMC care and treatment- there is a reason for that which might have nothing at all to do with a FTCA claim.
