    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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?”

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

    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

Delta pointed out the good part of the decision..here is the bad part:

Altho the Veteran "won" his point that the VA has to consider all the medical records, his case was remanded (back on the hampster wheel). The net effect of this is as follows:

When the VA does not follow regulations, the Veteran bears the burden with additional delays. There is simply no penalty for the Va to fail to follow its own regulations, and there is no reason to see them start doing that anytime soon. This is a terrible injustice. Even when the Veteran wins, he looses, and is subject to even more delays. Even if the Veteran ultimately wins his case, he still winds up being forced to make an interest free loan to the VA of money that is rightfully his.

Actually a remand is not always a bad thing as the BVA sends instructions to the RO about what it wants them to do. Many remands end up being an award a few months down the road.

few vets win on remands.

Broncovet is correct. The VARO's will not likely follow their own laws or what the BVA instructs them to do.

A remand after a vet has had a favorable C&P or IMO turned in, will likely open the door for doctor shoping opinions by the RO's on remand. You can almost bet money the VA's IMO from their contractors will not be favorable putting the Vet in a position to obtain yet another IMO. When the BVA recieves that one, it will be remanded back to the RO, not to award, but will likely obtain another unfavorable IMO to deny with.

There are two years or more between these actions stringing claims out for decades.

While i'm here. I would like to apoligize for being a jerk to you the other day broncovet.

This is a great case that says V.A. must obtain all service records prior to making a decision on the severity of the veteran's mental disability. Could someone put up a link to it?

The case I listed was the federal circuit case. Thank you Allan for posting this link. The case you posted was the lower court which had one brief quote from the federal circuit case. Could someone post the link to the federal circuit case.
