    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

How To Reopen Denied Ptsd In 2006


I was denied ptsd in 2006. Did not at the time know the process. After being on this forum for months and months, I have learned so much. I Thank all my brothers and sisters for your care and concern for all of us.

I was in the Signal Corp in Viet Nam with the 4th Infantry in Ankhe and the 1st Cav in Pouc Vinh For the issue at hand, I want to pursue my ptsd claim. I was diagnosed in 2006 at my C&P exam for ptsd but was denied because my stressors were not validated. I am currently 30% Anxiety, 30% AO(diabetes) with a 60% total rating. I had a C&P in March for NOD and came out with a new diagnosis for Depression. Still waiting on decision from VA.

I have been for the last 2 months going to outpatient PTSD classes every week and seeing my shrink once a month. I have many stressors but my main one is no doubt related to my PTSD. On base camp, my captain told me to burn the foilage on the perimeter line. As I was doing this, unexploded ammunition started going off and I believe one of them was a claymore mine. I came back and reported the problem but was ordered to go back. I refused for my safety and was arrested and jailed in a Conex trailer for over a month for Court Martial (I believe AR-90 disobeying a superior officer and assult). I WON MY CASE IN COURT! My commander company was embarrassed and immediately demoted me and shipped me out to a different part of Nam.

My question remains, what is the best approach to reopen my PTSD claim? Will it be retroactive from 2006 since I didn't file an NOD or will I have a new file date? Appreciate your feedback!

Do you have any combat action badges, medals like a PH, Bronze star?

You may be able to go the CUE route if you have a valid claim.

According to the VA the answer is no. I did receive a combat certificate from the 1st CAV

    • 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...
