    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

Is My Nephew Entitled To Compensation

Question

Hi. I hope someone can answer this question and also place this into the proper section.

My brother was in the Navy. He was killed on Mother's day 1982. He has a son (jr) who was approximately 8 years old when his father died. He is now 34. Throughout his entire life (since his father was killed), he has blamed everyone for taking his daddy from him, acting crazy (I really think he is), going in and out of jail and prison, etc...

I know he has PTSD due to his father's death, but I need to know if there is someway I can file a claim for him to receive some kind of compensation.

Hoping someone can help with some answers. Thanks

What were the circumstances involved in your Brother's death?

And, the disposition of his service-members insurance, if he had any?

Ok - here we go. We still don't understand. My brother was in the navy attached to camp Le June. Now he had went to ministry school. It was Mother's day 1982. He called my grandmother and me and wished us a Happy mother's day. Went to Burdine's bought me a dress and had it shipped to me. He then went to church to preach his first sermon. All I know is when he got home, he was shot in the back of the head. He was boarding with a naval boarding place.

They first thought it was suicide until I asked what hand was the gun in, they said his right and I told them he was left handed. His ex-wife received his insurance in monthly installments. He was ex navy. She went to investigate his death and 1 year, on the same date they found her dead in her apartment with two gunshots to the head. Then my grandmother and I received the balance of his insurance money. So evidently it was not suicide. His children received military payments monthly until they turned 18.

    • 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...
