  • 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

Need Help With Iu Claim Question

Question

Hello I was disabaled from Civ Job as a result of PTSD Non SC but the question I have is that the PTSD affects my SC connected Hypertension to the point I get stressed out and boom my blood pressure goes through the roof. I also was retired due to headaches Listed as Vascular in nature (migraines) I am SC for that also secondary to SC hypertension. I try not to submit a claim tough as it is getting it through with the wall I have to climb now trying to get IU. I am 80% now 60% Hypertenisive heart disease 30% Mighraines 10% Degenrative disc disease and 10% Hearing. I have fought the Iu for 2 years so far and I recently had a C/P exam since I am waiting for Surgery on my back through the VA as I have 4 disc that the VA is wanting to replace and fuse with rods and hardware. I was diagnosed with IVDS as my back got worse about two years ago and my pain meds really wipe me out. I hope to get a civ nuero surgeon to write me an IMO looking at my current back condition pre surgery to get the people at the VA to look at present condition. I explained to exam doc that I am limited in bending over (checked with Gynometer) and no range of motion forward or sideways due to pain. I can understand why people get so pissed off with the way the VA tries to deny claims that are so obvious. Any Ideas on if I should put in claims for the headaches and Effects of PTSD on my hypertension. I have like 3 or 4 migraines a month. I know it is common sense claim but common sense does not seem to be widely used when it comes to some claims. If I get do get the surgeon to help me with the claim I think I am okay just not to sure about the other claims. Adios and thanks.

I was hurt pretty bad in a fight thought I was fine until I started having problems with crowds got the shakes violently ill projectile vomiting pretty nasty. I starting walling myself off from others the whole nine yards. I had always thought it would happen to others but not me. Now I am on the outisde of life looking in. Hate to say it but it kind of makes life simple for me. Sucks for the family old friends but after a while it eats you or you eat it. I have tried everything only thing keeps me in check is a strict schedule and I read a lot. You can live a life inside a book. A cop that can no longer handle crowds is about as useless as a screen door on a sub. Now I am handling life one day at a time. I do know now what so many others go through everyday being one of them myself the effects of PTSD do not go away with the issuance of a check or for me only 9 years worth of time still have my good and bad days. Any ideas shoot as I have a free schedule. Adios..

    • 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...
