    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

Post Tramatic Epilepsy:


I've had epilepsy since 1975 awarded service connection in 1984

I have been looking over my medical records from the neurology clinic

at the VA medical center and found several notations stating that my

seizures are secondary to head trauma recieved in the military also

several statements acknowledging post traumatic epilepsy secondary to in service TBI. I feel i should apply for TBI since they agree my seizures were caused by my head injuries in service.

All comments would be appreciated: :D

Makes sense to me. You should go for it.

Why did it take 9 years to get service connected for this problem from 1975-84. Did you file a claim in 1975 and get denied?

Apply for TBI - DV 8045 - Post Oct 2008 regs.

Seizures and additional conditions from head trauma

are to be rated separetly.

What is your current level of VA SC'd disability

and how is it broken down?

Yes John999: I was denied several times also back then things were a lot slower without computers finally i made it to the Court of veterans appeals and it was remanded and denied again at board and regional level I made it to the court again this time it was remanded with a Joint Motion and advised to expedite my claim ASAP...I Won .. :D

I have chronic severe peripheral neuropathy and radiculopathy in

all extremities i have been told in was most likely caused by my TBI and seizure disorder..I think if i can get service connected for TBI it would be easier to obtain secondary service connection for my added disabilities I am rated at 100% seizures,50% pes Planus, 50% bipolar, 20% cervical strain and 10%lumbar strain at the SMC-(S)rate I am going for Loss of Use at a higher rating..

Thank You

    • 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...
