Yes, they do it all the time. They pass the claims around from one maxed out VARO to another. I guess this shows action. If they send it to the ST. Petersburg VARO fall on your knees and pray to the good Lord that your claims comes back.

Ditto on John999's post.

If you are currently 30% SC'd - in my opinion you have a long way to

go prior to getting IU granted.

I only know of a few claims for IU being granted as extra-schedular,

by way of another Hadit member, as it does not happen often.

Probably for you to get IU granted you will have to get increases in your

current level of SC first.

It's like climbing up a ladder --- v e r y s l o w l y.....

jmho,

If the VA really intends to grant IU they will first bump you up to 70%. I filed when I was 30% and they bumped me up to 70% and eventually granted IU. Not without a long drawn out fight, however. I started at 10% and got bumped and lumped all the way to IU.

Initial claim in 07' was for ptsd got rated at 30% SC in DEC. of 08. I Filed for IU in Feb. first just based on ptsd asking for 70% plus 30% for iu. however In april I added the TBI and residuals after finally getting a TBI screening and a mri. my doctor told me to file for it. I am aware of the ladder to climb hoping the tbi and residuals get approved with no problems and help my % along. Stress of waiting on the descion now i getting to me a little.

zollie,

Have you actually had a C&P done yet for TBI, this is different from a TBI screening.

Have you gotten or requested copies of your exams, MRI's,any C&P's etc...

that have been done.

Have you ever gotten a copy of your claims file ?

    • 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...
