Winning Ptsd Claim

Question

met up with a VSO from american legion and got everything submitted for my ptsd claim...to date i am 80% rated and EVERYTHING has been linked back to the same incident (also the same incident that separated me) and the ptsd was of course apart of the same incident...he said we have no issue winning this in his personal opinion. im so pumped, at the same time we submitted my request for IU....if the ptsd doesnt rate me high enough for 100% (anything over 30% to 60% will rate me at 90% overall) that they'll grant the 10% for IU. ontop of this i got everything submitted before nov 4th (my separation date) so everything will be retroed back to the day i got out!!!

Best wishes for you. Glad you and the VSO are staying on top of things. Now you know the lingo and the effort it takes to get the compensation - come back and help others. Good your process is going quickly, many have been at it for years and with long stories of changed lives.

Sorry that you need to get IU so soon after service, thank you for your service - keep in touch!

Pete i have to thank u the most, since day one since i joined on here u have helped me probably more than u would know.

Thank u cowgrl for the kind words.

I have a new beast to conquer now...my vso did some digging for me and came up with some helpful information. Like i said 1 incident caused all my issues, the major issue while in service was the loss of use of my left ankle...i got separated due to the ankle (the military didnt rate anything else) at 10%...he said i can bring this to the attention of my congressmen and show him/her the facts between ehat the va is rating me and what the military did, and possibly appeal my 10% and request for higher to be medically retired, so i had asked what the difference would be being 100%va or medically retired and he stated "tricare for life is far better than campva" haha but he also said to play it safe, that one day it could come about that a retired vet could possible "double dip" per say by collecting retirement and va compensation together

    • 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...
