  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Major Paperwork Foul Up On Claim


I submitted this statement to VA today and I wanted to get some comments by Hadit members to see if it makes sense and to get your comments.

I have been informed that my head injury/TBI claim is in line to eventually be decided by the rating board, but my PTSD claim is still at the pre-determination section.

I completed my head injury/TBI C&P in January with Dr xxxxxxxxxx. About a week later, I then completed my PTSD C&P with Dr xxxxxxx xxxxx - also in January. Dr xxxx ordered additional neuropsychological testing that I completed in March.

For some reason, MES solutions combined both the results of the head injury/TBI exam with the results of the PTSD exam and the results of the neuropsychological testing into a single 32 page report and submitted it to XXXXXXXXXX VARO in April. Upon receipt by VA, it was then placed into the virtual VA section of my head injury/TBI claim. None of the results were electronically placed into the PTSD claim. Additionally, an independent PTSD evaluation completed by Dr Warren Palmer was placed in the head injury/TBO claim instead of the PTSD claim.

I'm uncertain if the two claims have been combined in terms of their submission to the rating board or if this is simply an unintentional error that needs to be corrected. I felt that the matter was significant enough to be brought to attention of XXXXXXXXXXX VARO to determine if corrective clerical action needs to be taken to place the documents in their proper, respective claims.

I have no additional information to submit for my claims and I would respectfully request that XXXXXXXXXXX VARO decide my claim as soon as possible.

Respectfully submitted,



(xxx) xXX-xxxx

It appears they are going to do both at the same time as it is their perrogative to do so. Dont worry about the info being combined together as it usually is done that way. The RO just have to look at it. I dont think it is a bad deal, Maybe a good one.

Hang in there.

    • 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...
