    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

Bva Remand Decision

Question

I recently received 10% from the AMC on a Remand decision from the BVA.The award should have been 20%,because their was two or more major or minor joints involved.I sent the amc evidence that should have clarified this.They gave me back pay from November 2005,when I initially filed the claim.I have three more issues.On my second c& p the doctor said it was definitely service-connected on one issue as well as the first doctor said it was service connected on one of the issues.They said it was a very compelling case,but they said I was not on the master list,whatever that means on my ssoc.They denied the other issue,and the final issue I changed my claim at the traveling board they granted that,and i am still waiting for my initial c&p.The amc sent my case back to the bva,and I am on the dockett.The Judge seemed to be amicable to me at the traveling board,and on my remand decision.Chief Justice Roberts in a meeting with Mr. Yang interupted him,and said a"are you saying that 60% of the decisions from the bva are judged eroneously with no legal merit.Mr. Yang said Yes.72% of the decisions are overturned at the CVA.Between philadelphia and the amc the denials are really a joke.They are trying to wear me down.How long will it be until I get a decision from the bva?Should I hire a private attorney if the claims are denied and appeal to the cva? I served during Viet Nam,Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom I was with Special Operations.I didn't just fall off the turnip boat.Any help my brothers and sisters can give me will be deeply appreciated. coolbreeze

Make sure that the BVA has all pertinent evidence.EVen if you have to re-send it all to the BVA.It sounds like the AMU overlooked some of your proative evidence.

I think the AMC makes plenty of errors but that statistic is overwhelming. Where did they get those figures?

"Should I hire a private attorney if the claims are denied and appeal to the cva? I served during Viet Nam,Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom I was with Special Operation" etc.

If you filed this claim after June 20, 2007 you can hire an attorney-but at this point best to wait for the BVA decision-in my opinion.

If you have to file at the CAVC, attorneys will most likely contact you.

Can you give us a link to the BVA remand and/or can you scan and post as an attachment -the recent decision as to their reasons and bases? (Cover any personal stuff)

.

"but they said I was not on the master list,whatever that means on my ssoc"

??? DO you mean there were issues you didnt formally claim? I rerally dont have a clue as to what the /master list/ could be.

It would help if we could see the SSOC and have a link the remand.It has probably been put at the BVA web site by now.

Welcome, I think it might be of some help for you to break down the issues. Please do not post personal information just the specific information pertaining to the claim. I have found since the VA will go after this issues by issue we need to do the same to them.

    • 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...
