  • 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

Looks like the rules of the date of filing your NEW AO IHD claim will prevail

Looks like that is correct but, "I feel," with two exceptions. One would be if the vet ever filed a blanket claim, for AO, years earlier and the other would be if the IHD was diagnosed earlier. I feel the case can be won but obviously the VA wouldn't publicize it, as it would cost too much. I think Nehmer would cover that but bow to Berta's expertise on the subject of Nehmer. jmo

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

If you were diagnosed, but failed to file a claim...... for IHD , theVA could care less I had IHD when I forst went to the VA...

I never filed any Heart or Heart related things.

13 days after the AO presumptives were announced I filed.... we are not talking of Prior filings and the Nehmer ruling.

This question is about on the 13Octt2009 the day the first filing could be made for the very first time...

What is the date these new claims start retro, the day one filed on or after 13Oct2009........

or

The retro starts the day the Proposed rules were published, or worse yet.... the day the retro starts is the day the FINAL

Rules are published sometime on or past AUGUST 2010 ?

Forget all else

I believe when i filed for hep.c and was denied i asked to consider any and all future discovery of causes for infection ,such as air guns ect.

I cant remember if i put similar wording as far as agent orange goes,but if i did would that qualify as a claim if i had ihd ?

    • 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...
