    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 filed a claim threw the DAV for 7 total conditions. I received one exam for my ears (which really wasn't one of the things I filed on). I never received any other exams and received a denial letter across the board for all things I claimed on. is this right? or even legal how can I be denied on service connection and disability without even being seen or examined?? PLEASE someone help. I have been out a considerable amount of time and have rarely went to civilian doctors as I could never afford treatment and was unaware I could go to the VA for treatment. Thanks in advance for any and all help

I filed a claim about 6 months ago threw the DAV in phoenix. I received one exam for my ears (which wasn't even one of my claims). I checked and wasn't scheduled for any other exams. I filed for 7 separate service connected disabilities. I contacted the VA and was told that they needed to check my records to see if any service relation was valid. Then they would schedule the other exams. I received a denial letter in the mail this past Friday straight across the board on everything. I don't have any civilian medical records as I have never been able to afford treatment and didn't have insurance. The handful of times I have gotten treatment it seems the doctors or clinics have since vanished so getting medical records vanished as well. I went to medical multiple times for the things Ive filed on and its notated in the paperwork I received with my denial. One of my main questions is this even legal how can they deny I have anything wrong if they haven't even given me a C&P exam for them. What would I need to do for my next move (NOD, APPEAL) I appreciate all and any help Thanks Dave

apparently your claims were weak enough to be fast tracked to the denial can. do you have a vso? you need to good one to help this along the way with good nexus and medical documentation . a good srtong claim is what triggers exams. resubmit with heavier proof.

You need to post the reasons and bases for the denial(s). There can be many legal reasons for the denial(s).

    • 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...
