  • 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

New Directive For Ao Vets

Question

Kurt Priessman-member of hadit and SVR radio -who won the first AO Thailand claim was -in my opinion- very instrumental in getting the VA to recognize the use of AO as defined in this new C & P Bulletin.

This news and the directive is so important that we did an additional SVR radio show on it last night and it can be found in the archives of the shows under the SVR link.

I suggested on last night's show and mention this again- it is best to contact JSRRC yourself as the VA is quick to say that JSRRC never verified the event,incident, stressor, proof of AO exposure etc etc when -in fact- sometimes JSRRC never gets a verification request from the VA to do that.And then VA denies the claim.

Van here and it isn't downloading the entire piece. Only the title.

But to opine on this, JSRRC doesn't have most of these types of records. If you're claiming exposure outside of Viet Nam and claiming you were exposed by way of the base use, storage and disposal there won't be any record. These records aren't archived and only kept about 2 years.

As for the VARO's asking over and over for these records I doubt it. But again this shouldn't go against you, the lack of records. When they say there's no record that is true but these types of records never existed for the purposes of law. They had been destroyed, at least in most if not all cases. Lack of records is just that, not pro and not con.

I'll take a look on the internet and see if I can find a copy of the bulletin.

I've always thought the JRSSC was nothing other than a dodge to deny because the DVA already knew the answer, that is in the case of base use. Base use records don't exist.

    • 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...
