  • 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

Nehmer Act Question

Question

In my origional claim in '06 I claimed DM II w/ CAD as secondary to DM II. Diabetes was granted but CAD was denied as being dx'd prior to diabetes.That decision is currently on appeal. Will that denial stand for readjudication under the Nehmer Act for the new IHD presumptive? BTW I have filed a new IHD claim.

I think you should send them a 21-4138 regarding the pending claim on appeal-mentioning that the new IHD regulations when published, should be applied to your new claim as well as used as evidence in support of your appeal on the denied claim.

(of course they will only award one way or the other-BUT if they ward for AO IHD on the New claim-they could easily give you the new claim date for the EED.

And remind them to fully apply all conditions of the Nehmer Court Order and Stipulation to the retro.

I think this might be the case for many vets with DMII previously denied for CAD as secondary to the DMII.

Based on the nehmer training letter you should be comped back to your date of denial. Take a read of my other post on nehmer and the sample scenarios they have for the raters. Your case fits right in there as a claim that was denied and should be retro ed back to your original date.

Good Luck to you!

    • 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...
