  • 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

Veteran & SSN

NOTICE OF DISSAGREMENT

I totally disagree with the Regional Office Decision dated April 13, 2010 and I intend to dispute the decision with a DRO Review and then appeal it all the way to Washington with an attorney if I’m not happy with the DRO results.

The issues are as follows:

Issue #1 I totally disagree with the C/P examine due to the fact she stated she was new and not to sure of what she was doing and to please bear with her. She did not use a measuring device through the complete exam, she eyeballed allot of it. She forced my head and measurements to get readings she wanted causing extreme pain and the C/P report that I obtained are not the answers I had given her. No repeat motions of any kind were asked of me during the entire exam nor did she ask me to walk.

Issue #2. I also dispute the fact that there is nothing granted for my Thoracic region of my spine, maybe that’s a separate claim I need to make? (Please inform me).

Issue #3. My Dr. that performed my Cervical Surgery indicated I stay on Temporary Total Disability for a further two months during my follow-up visit September 4, 2008 in which my total disability pay is not accurate and I expect to be compensated for. It should go until November 4, 2008.

Issue #4. I am providing more medical records, doctors reports, ROM, bubby letters from my sister and a customer from work and detailed information on my conditions and a Statement Of Facts from me in which if I’m not happy the DRO’s decision I intend to take the Statement Of Facts letter to Tri-State Polygraph Associate Inc in Cincinnati, OH to authenticate my facts before appealing with an attorney.

Issue #5. I am also providing X-Ray photo of my Cervical Fusion and I expect the highest rating for that alone in which I have barely any movement at all because of it.

Issue #6. I further expect the max rating for my Lumbar Thoracic after reviewing all my evidence, there are people who are getting 50% and only have DDD and I have an enormous amount of problems.

Further if a DRO can not see for him or her self I warrant max ratings I expect nothing less that a new C/P exam at a different location with a different doctor and a different rater so there is an unbiased evaluation and decisions.

Mr. Veteran & Date

any advice would be greatful

Well, I'll tell you this:

You aren't getting anywhere with that letter. Why, you spend more than HALF the letter threatening someone. If I got one like that, it'd go DIRECTLY to the circular file.

just sayin'.................

Your request should be for a NOD based on an inadaquate exam. Request a re-examination based on the fact that the doctor manipulated your range of motion and that is not allowed.

How's This??

NOTICE OF DISSAGREMENT

I totally disagree with the Regional Office Ratings dated April 13, 2010 due to the fact that the C/P Examiner did not follow protocol. I intend to dispute the decisions and ratings with a DRO Review first because of the following issues. I am asking that a DRO review my issues and reevaluate my issues and ratings and provide me a new C/P exam if needed.

The issues are as follows:

Issue #1 I totally disagree with the C/P examine due to the fact the doctor stated she was new and not to sure of what she was doing and to please be patient with her. She did not use a measuring device through the complete exam, she eyeballed allot of it. She forced my head to get measurements she wanted causing extreme pain and the C/P report that I obtained are not the answers I had given her. No repeat motions of any kind were asked of me during the entire exam nor did she ask me to walk.

Issue #2. I also dispute the fact that there is nothing granted for my Thoracic region of my spine, maybe that’s a separate claim I need to make? (Please inform me).

Issue #3. My Dr. that performed my Cervical Surgery indicated I stay on Temporary Total Disability for a further two months during my follow-up visit September 4, 2008 in which my total disability pay is not accurate it should be until November 4, 2008 and I ask for that to be corrected.

Issue #4. I am providing more medical records, doctors reports, ROM from a recent chiropractor and a Statement Of Facts letter from me. I will at anytime if requested of me I will take my Statement Of Facts letter and have it authenticated at Tri-State Polygraph Associate Inc in Cincinnati, OH. I can provide buddy letters from family, friends and even customers from my past.

Issue #5. I am also providing X-Ray photo of my Cervical Fusion and I believe I should have highest rating for that alone in which I have barely any movement at all because of it. According to the accurate ROM I am providing and the General Rating Formula for Diseases and Injuries of the Spine I warrant a 50% for my cervical.

Issue #6. I further believe I should have the max rating for my Lumbar Thoracic after reviewing all my evidence, there are people who are getting 50% and only have DDD and I have an enormous amount of problems and suffer tremendously. I believe with all the problems with my Lumbar Thoracic problems combined and recent accurate ROM I warrant 50% .

Further: I have no problem with a DRO requesting a new C/P exam however I only ask that it be at a different facility and different doctor to obtain an unbiased examination. I only ask to be treated, examined and rated fairly; I did not ask for all the problems that I have.<br style=""> <br style="">

    • 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...
