  • 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

Second C&p Exam

Question

:D When I filed a NOD after the DRO denied my claim, I did what I was advised by veterans of this site. I got a copy of my C-file, Service Medical Records and went through them and pulled out all the information I thought was revelent to my case. I wrote a 12 page NOD and sent them copies of the revelent documents. The VA scheduled me for another C&P exam for my bilateral knee disability and the doctor had my complete file this time. I just got a copy of the rerport, in the Summary of Joint Symptoms section he write yes for the following: Giving Way; Instability; Pain; Stiffness; Weakness; Decrease speed of Joint Motion; Effusions; Flare-up of Joint disease; Severity-severe; Frequency-every 1 to 2 months; Duration-1 to 2 weeks;

Assistive Devices: Orthotic Inserts; Cane; Braces; Frequency of Use-Always.

On the Range of Motion: He states addition limitation after three repetition of Range of Motion is Left Flexion: 0 to 90 degrees; Left Extension: 0 to 20 degrees. Right Flexion: 0 to 90 degrees; Right Extension 0 to 20 degrees.

On the Diagnoses and Functional effects section, Left Knee he lists Quadricepts Tendonitis; Post surgical change suprapatellar tendon; Horizontal cleavage tear posterior horn medial menicus; Residual Osgood Schlatter's debridment with Degenerative Joint Disease and Chondromalacia. On the Right Knee, Quadricepts Tendonitis; and Residual Osgood Schlatter's ddebridment with Degenrative Joint Disease and Chondromalacia.

The doctor states the bilateral knee disability has significant effects on my usual occupation, and moderate to severe effects on my daily activities.

This doctor took the time to review my SMR and related all the condition to my time in the military.

My question is what does the VA use to rate all of this? The Summary of Joint Symptoms or something else. Can I please get an opinion on what will be rated and how.

Thank you again and for all the help on this web site. By the way I still haven't got the results from my second mental health C&P exam. Without this site I would have not been able to accomplish all of this because the DAV have not been any help at all. I was surprise at the DAV at the Waco Regional Office because the DAV in the Los Angeles Regional were really on the ball.

Thanks again,

nanaeris.

    • 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...
