  • 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

Agent Orange Proposed Rules No Show

Question

Here we are, no Proposed rules on federal registry.

Anyone surprised ?

Will that lauded legal battle start soon, or is that a suspect artifact of all this ?

I hope not/ to be silent means you are part of the problem

Good luck to us that have AO IHD claims.....

No surprise here. Don't see how the threat of a law suit will make the VA move on these new presumptives any faster. By the time any law suit for not having the proposed regs written and published on time ever sees the inside of a court room they will have been published making the law suit moot. I would think the law firm that sent that letter to Secretary Shenseki with the Mar 12th deadline knows it would be a waste of time and money to pursue. IMHO the VA is taking it's sweet time on this so that they can cull out and/or low ball as many claims as possible before the new regs are published and then when they are published they will send out a mass mailing of denials and low balled claims and maybe only few will actually get a fair shake.

Being one of many that have filed the AO claim, I await a decision that I had originally figured to be.... July 2010

Now I am thinking more like May 2011 for first silly decisions.

Silly as in, did they read the reports, claims, or did the RO actually know how to rate the claims ?

I suspect they will low ball me, because they did not notice one particular thing in my medical file that is listed

100 times, or more, and 5 times in the C&P exam that ought to get me 100% awaard....

I see the future and it is laughable, and predictable in VA speak

Every day the VA stalls another group of AO IHD vets dies. This is good business model for the VA. Waiting for others to file legal suits means your epitaph will be carved on your tomb stone..."He waited for justice. He died waiting."

    • 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...
