    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 On Multiple Iu Claim


Hello I have a claim in for IU which I had finally got my civilian Surgeon write a letter for me stating that I because of my SC Back am unable to obtain gainful employment, also stated that I did infact need the surgery as a result of my back injury while on active duty. I submited this as I appealed the IU denial the first time.

It is now at the raters board here is my problem. Seeing how if they deny my IU appeal it will go into the round file or I appleal it and it takes forever to get it remanded back. Should I put in for tempoary IU for the back surgery I am having next week 3 level lumbar fushion I am told it is a year to recover from the surgery but my wifes job is now in danger again for taking anymore than 2 weeks off after the surgery to help me after the surgery. I am stuck in bed for several weeks at a time and she has really sucking employers so this injury has caused me more than physical pain. We have lost a vehicle with her missing work never able to get caught up after getting behind.

I just wondered if I should put in for the tempoary IU submiting the paperwork from my Doctor telling the VA how long I will be under his care. I also had another surgery last year for a nerve stimulator which had me down for 2 months for my SC back. Just wondering as you all have seen and done it all before. Have a good day..

Why not wait to hear what rater says should not be to long now. I would also submit the medical evidence to support your claim ASAP.

Good Luck

Thanks I got a call from an IRIS inquiry (really works thanks Hadit) and was told that they indeed had recivied the letter from the surgeon and the VA rep told me to go ahead and apply for the temp since the surgery is intense and would require up to a year to recouperate so that was why I asked you all. I was also told that my claims file was going to the raters after they finnished up the iris response is this normal for IRIS operations? 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...
