  • 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

Va Called My House

Question

I have 2 claims waiting to be rated ( before rating board as of 08 / 2010) and a claim on appeal to be called by the BVA.

All of my C & P exams was finished in May 2010. VA called my house today to schedule a C & P exam for a claimed which was denied in the past. This is the same claim waiting to go before the Board. This appealed was filed in 02 / 2009.

Is it normal for them to call me at home to schedule and exam? All of my other exams appts were made by the hospital and they told me when to come in a letter.

Thanks, Woody

It is not really normal but I would sure as heck attend the exam. The VARO should send you a letter for the exam. This way you get paid for milage also.

With the large number of claims pending the VA has begun to do a lot of telephone development. It has always been an options, as it saves time for the veterans.

It do decrease the time we veterans have to sit and wait for a decision.

The hardest time we have from the posting I have seen is not knowing what the VA is doing.

The idea of not knowing what is going on causes more stress and when you need help, You Need Help!

Yes I have been called a couple of times in the past from them to set up C&P's.

Now if this C&P is for the issue you have before the BVA on appeal. I see this as a good thing! Many times appeals get in front of the BVA and have to be remanded for a C&P. This really gums up the works. Also not to get your hopes up but if your claim is still at the RO and waiting to be certified to the BVA the RO also takes a look at it to see if they can grant it at the RO.

All of this is a good thing and shows movement.

I have an appeal in waiting to be certified at my RO that has been there since June 09. Wish it would move!

    • 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...
