  • 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

Finally! Ptsd Presumptive Monday

Question

I heard the news while riding to the VA to see my doctor this morning. I could not believe it. What we have been fighting for will be realized Monday. No more proving; no more stressors; no more triggers; and no more of the same games. Don't know all that is ahead but this I do know; "We have come a long way baby!"

Thanks to all the brothers and sisters for their emails to their congressman and to the legislators and to the VA demanding our rights and benefits for the service we have paid for with blood sweat and tears. This time it is tears of joy. Let us all celebrate. It is just a beginning but this time we win!!!!!

It may upset some, but I see it as an easy way for people to commit fraud and win benefits they did not earn. I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this ruling.

At this point, it really does not matter what you or I feel. The law is the law. We dealt with a law of inequity for years that was biased to deny the rightful veterans of their benefits. I don't share the burden of those who cheat but only the justified. For all of the veterans who have been denied unjustly, there was no recourse except through the courts. The burden of proof was always beared by the veteran. Now the table is turned. The VA is now faced with the truth of denial. I would be mindful not to throw the baby out with the wash.

Peace and continual love,

Bergie,

I agree with you. I am going through the process now and even though I hope for a positive outcome, I support doing the right thing. We all know there are a ton of people out there who are abusing the system which I believe adversely affects honest veterans with valid claims. Now apparently you can be on Camp Victory sipping a Latte and eating Pizza Hut, then come home and file a claim because you were in a combat zone even though you never left the wire. I think the VA should use their resources and money to improve the process so deserving vets are processed more efficiently.

It saddens me to hear you make that statement Bergie. There are tons of brothers and sisters out there that need the new rule assistance because of their DX's of PTSD but were having problems finding someone 40 years ago to help. Or other things that were there but could not find. Of course there are some who will try and game the system. There always is and always will be. Just look at the Banks, BP, your own Congressmen/women etc etc etc. But the ones that need the help the most now get a fair chance to get what you and others get. Peace at last and the chance to start over with a life without fear and hopelessness that has been eating away at them for over 40 years. I say Bravo for this new ruling. JMHO :lol:

Bergie and Humble,

It's a disappointment to read these posts.

I'd have to say I'm glad neither one of you are VBA decision makers.

    • 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...
