  • 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

This gives me something to live for then. I have to stay alive for at least two more years. If you die while your claim is at the CAVA does it die with you or can your widow pick it up. My lawyer says he is going to pursue the case at CAVA and I don't have to do anything except maybe sign some papers.

John,

My case went to CAVC in June/2009.

According to my attorney, timetable results from 3,000-4,000 cases filed each year, seven judges to deal

with them all.

It can take up to next summer before my case gets before a judge. Another year sitting in remand is likely after the judge sends it back to the BVA . New C&P's will likely be ordered, if favorable another year or so at the VARO waiting to be rated. Another year after that with a NOD because of the low ball ratings is also likely.

It's either delay or deny. Why is there such a back log of claims? Mine should have never taken 13 yrs to get to the CAVC.

Sorry, John, but probably 3-4 yrs before you get a decision from the court but as you say it gives you another reason to live longer. I'm not sure if the court case survives your death but I kinda doubt it . . . but then what do I know. It'll probably be another 6 yrs before it's resolved, if you win at the court. The wheels of justice turn slowly, if and when they turn at all! jmo

    • 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...
