    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

Va Ptsd File Sent For Va Dr. Medical Opinion

Question

I have had a claim in for PTSD since 2004 when I returned from Iraq. It has been denied twice the first time for them saying there was no proof I was in Iraq.....lol. That was later prooved.

The second time they needed to VERIFY my stressors,

Finally here I am six yrs later still fighting. This is what I found out when I called them yesterday. They have VERIFIED my stressor OCCURED and the person whom was killed, at camp Pa but sate that I was at camp New York when it occured not understanding that the tent cities were in close proximity to eachother and I was a hummve driver and that I was in fact there.

I have two diagnosis of PTSD

Three stressor lettors

Admitted to Phych ward for Suicide Attempt

Signed letter from battle buddy stating stressors occured.

Letters from wife about my PTSD

Lengthy VA file of PTSD problems with gaf refrences 35-40

Pictures of my Hummve with bulletholes in it with my name and rank clearly on the window

The Person on the phone told me that as of today that they are in fact working my case and just drafted a letter to get a "MEDICAL" opinion from a VA medical doctor to look at my file to see if I have PTSD.

So my question to you all at this point is do you all think after all this time and the above evidence do you think this is a good thing that they are getting a VA doctor to give them a medical opinion as to if I have PTSD. I dont think I can take another denial.

well hell, how in the hell would you know that particular soldier died if you weren't there. Soldiers are routinely in accidents all over the world so I don't see their argument on this at all. Did you relay all this information below to them explaining the circumstances. Seems like you have already proven them wrong twice so why in the heck would they not believe you now. Bull shit is all i got to say.

shame on them making you go through all this but in the end it will be worth it. Hang in there.

Hang in there and be shure to give them everything that pertains to this. sometimes you have to wright a letter explaining everything in a time frame and take them by there hand and lead them step by step. do not give up on getting what you deserve.

    • 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...
