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

    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

Question

I don't know if this is the right forum but I was reading and decided to seek information regarding my situation. In 2007 I was hospitalized in Perry Point, Md. with a diagnosis of severe PTSD. I attended an intense program to help me. I finished that and was told to put in a claim for the dx. I did so and never got anything back from the VA. I moved to another state and asked a VSO to check into the claim and found out that my claims had been included with the Haas V Nicholson case (Blue Water Navy). It didn't matter that I had submitted evidence that i had been in country and had been diagnosed with the PTSD. Eventually I was told by my VSO that I had been denied my claim for PTSD and I had waited too long to appeal. The problem is that I had proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that I had been in country. (DD214 +DD215 with orders and medals and previous stressors submitted.) After consulting with a local Congressman's office and getting a disability rating for one of the presumptive illnesses, the VA still has not even mentioned the PTSD. I have sent in a notice of disagreement in that regard however they denied that as well. Recently I went through another intensive 8 week course at a local VA for PTSD again and was determined to have gotten worse. I am wondering what else can I do to get some kind of decision on my case. I submitted the results of the latest hospitalization findings to the VA again. Any information or suggestions that anybody can give will be highly appreciated. Thanks

First of all you can have ptsd, but to get service connected for it three things have to happen.(1) Be diagnose with PTSD by a medical professional (psychiatist of clincal psychologist)(2)Have vertifable inservice stressor (unless you have a purple heart,Combat Infantryman badge,combat action ribbon of any medal that was rewarded to you for being in combat with the enemy)and (3)your ptsd corroborate with your inservice stressor and it is ongoing.

Yeah they make it really tough on Veterans and it should be more common sense based in my opinion.

But Pete we all know that many times they don't follow their own rule book, they play a game that isn't listed anywhere, thats why T Bird started "hadit" I imagine many of us here came because we had been screwed by VSO's and the VARO's and by many veterans and some great people Mike Harris, Alex, Berta, T Bird, you, John etc there are to many to list Flip and his road trips to many times the RO decides they don't want to play by the rules even I ended up getting a lawyer to win my heart claim against them despite being on SSD for heart problems they rated me at 60% fighting them again to get it to the 100% doesn't change anything I am SMC S now but they play to many games.

    • 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...
