Can I File A Cue?

Question

My claim is from illness from Petroleum chmecials, Jet Fuel, Gasoline, Diesel, and I also worked with trichloroethylene. In my denial letter, they only stated Jet Fuel in the denial letter and reasons) and left out all the other chemicals. Can I file a CUE because they ommited important parts of my claim for illness? Note, these chemicals were also clearly stated by a doctor that did my IMO.

thanx..

One of the most important documents that you will ever deal with, with the VA, is your original claim. The wording in your original claim can cause the VA to wander down unintended pathways. How, exactly, was your claim "worded"?

retiredat44 - didn't you just recently get your decision or am I confusing you w/someone else?? CUE is reserved for claims that are final, in which the 1 year appeal period has passed.

Cue claims are very unique, It depends on all the evidence in your file and the decision made at that time. It also depends on if you had met a certain rating at the time of the decision. Can you post the reason for VA decision. I suggested to one member on hadit that he may have a Cue claim because it appeared that he had evidence that VA was aware of but for some reason did not give it any credit. The veteran also had doctor statements and claimed symptoms that met the regulation but VA only gave him a low rating in my opinion. I may be totally wrong but, I think he should look in to it. We would need more information from you.

Not to hijack this thread but that is exactly what the VA is doing with my current claim. Is it possible change how your first claim was worded? Mine says "claiming back condition secondary to altered gait" The "altered gait" is getting me, its also all movement patterns requiring my knees, squatting , climbing stairs, lifting objects etc.. that hurt my back due to my sc knees.

hijack over =)

    • 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...
