  • 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

All Claims Sent Back To Development

Question

Very up setting to find all my claims were sent back to development. Last friday my biggest claim with my neck strain flex motion 0-10 % that would be rated a minimun of 30% sent back, today a smaller claim for acid reflex sent back. I was expecting that I would be receiving an brown envelope in a few weeks-now back to square one. I think the development board or someone didn't review this folder after setting for months and sent it straight to the rating board where it was sit on it for another month. The 800 asked if I received another letter-no-then they said it is an internal matter subjective to however long it takes for them to act on it. If this is like what one ex-rater-stated-then my folder is on the bottom of a pile growing by the hour. You could say I'm really vetting as I followed everything your supposed to do on this site-even sending a e-mail out no response to that either.

I appreciate that response-I had such a big let down lately. I have 3 claims pending. 1 for dependency back pay when I went over 30% last February-still sitting in development from May, 2 other claims, one which I threw everything but the kitchen sink at them and this is a large claim that will increase my claim to 60% or much higher based on the flex rating that the comp doctor wrote amoung other things for the neck. One claim which was denied in May for acid reflex and high cholestrol-the VA made another claim, I didn't do this. It will be disapproved has cholestrol is a lab finding, the acid reflex which I am on a lot of drugs now-I submitted info from my medical report-it actually needs to be submitted with a different name.

"one which I threw everything but the kitchen sink at them and this is a large claim that will increase my claim to 60% or much higher"

Ah, yeah, and I think that this is where you may have made a mistake. Often times, when you "throw things against the wall, hoping something might stick", then one thing outta the whole mishegas will hold up the whole mishegas..........er, well, you know what I mean (English, it's such a "limiting" language..............oy vey!)!

Actually I had a whole bunch of defered claims from last year. They rated my back which gave me a combined total of 30% and deferred the rest. This June I had a comp exam for the rest-got the results and then this sat in the rating area for 2 months before someone kicked everything back to the development. Now I guess it will set there until the fiscal year begins to settle this. A e-mail response has not generated any response from the VA-possibly they are furlough days till next year.

    • 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...
