    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

Requesting Copy Of C&p Exam

Question

Question: My exam results were forwarded back to the AMC after completed. When I called to inquire about a copy I was told that if they had to pull the file to get a copy of the exam, it would delay my claim. Is this true? I thought I could get one after a couple weeks from the outpatient clinic where the exam took place, but was told it was no longer there.

Any ideas???

BB,

If the C&P was done at you VAMC - you should be able to go to

Release of Information at the VAMC and get a copy - they don't have to

pull the file or even have possession of the file as it would be in

their computer system in electronic records.

The reords are stored at the hospital where the exam was performed, then a copy is sent to the VARO. Contact the ROI Clerk at that hospital with a signed release of information. It should take about a week, if you FAX your request. Contact your nearest County Veterans Service Office or Vet Center for help, if you feel you need it. They are YOUR records, as per HIPPA.

BB,

In NC you have to go to the RO to get a copy of your C&P exam. I tried at Durham VAMC and was told the RO handles all C&P exams if you are able to get to Winston-Salem go to the front desk takes about 5 minutes.

kw34,

They told me that this info was sent to the AMC in Hunnington, West Virginia. This is where my remand went from the BVA. I guess the NC RO was too busy.

BB,

Maybe your C-file is in WVa but the Exam is in the computer. I stopped in filled out the form told the lady the date of the exam and she printed it out. I pick up both of my exams this way. was your exam done at the outpatient clinic a Winston or at Durham neither will give it to you I tried both said all C&P's are giving at RO.

    • 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...
