    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

Yip! It definitely seems that way doesn't it!

My husband is more than a little pissed about this right now, I won't even tell him about it, in fact I won't let him do anything VA right now!

He just get really angry and it screws with the PTSD really bad, it just easier if I tell him nothing.

I have no idea why the government has this need to mess with people. Haven't the Vietnam Vets been through enough waiting! It's almost cruel I think. especially when they sort out the Persian Gulf Presumptive's so quickly, and that's after the AO presumptive's were announced.

I don't understand what is so difficult when it comes to writing the regs. They just apply the same AO regs as other AO presumptive's and you the rating schedule for Arteriosclerotic Heart Disease, because it is pretty much exactly the same illness. Then right a little spiel about why they are writing it and who agrees with it. Add a few signatures and ask people's opinion and tada! There's a new set of regs!

It's good to hear that others feel as I do. If they want to automate claims, fine...but get started doing something now! The need to get regs done and get to work on the claims that have already been filed. Vets and families have been waiting for far too long!

*****************************************

The VA knows as we all do, they wait for the Vet to die, whoops, no award.... how terrible....

If the Vet were to get 100% and then 10 years later ddie, the wife gets some of the award, so if they put off the award... that pushes the ten years farther out... whoops, no wife benifits after the vet dies... whoops...

I think that many feel that VA waits for Vet to die but I think that is something that they don't want either.Once you win your award the VA delivers pretty good service.

    • 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...
