    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

Question On Remanded Cue

Question

Hello I had a claim that went to BVA lost case applealed it with help from a veterans legal fund (pro Bono) the claim was won on appeal after the facts were clear on about 14 points Clearly the VA assumed a lot of things we all know what happens when we assume correct? Is there a reason now that the case has ben remanded back to the state and is at the ratting board I submited new evidence also with a couple of IMO. Is it odd that the VA did not schedule a newer C/P exam prior to the rating board? Yes I am dreaming but It is cheaper than buying a lottery ticket. I would have thought that the initial orthopedic surgeon who said my injuries were SC at first would have won it but a PA shot me down claiming it was an Injury at work. Way too many things to list good bad any thoughts? thanks I really would love to win the case I kept the claim alive it is now 9 years old this month. Again have a good day...

The BVA will remand a claim back to the RO so the RO has to make an opinion consistant with the one the BVA came up with. They are supposed to give your claim expeditious treatment.

It is a heck of a lot better than getting remanded to the AMC or appeals management center. Can you post a Docket Number (BVA)

The question will be how they figure your rating in light of the remanded CUE. If you don't like they way they rate you hire a lawyer. They might give you some sort of graduated rating over the last 9 years. I have a CUE that goes back 40 years, but I don't know if the rating will be constant or a rating that is graduated over the last 40 years. You know I might get 30% for ten years and then 50% for the next ten and 70% for the next ten when I think I should have gotten 100% for the first 15 years and maybe 70% for the rest of the time up until I became unemployable. This is why I have a lawyer.

Yes I have a Law Firm out of DC through the veterans legal Defense fund They were the firm that took my case after it went through the VBA and fought to have it rermanded back to the state. The Cues on the claim were a whole page and I hope I will get an answer soon the claim is at the ratting board. 40 years is a long time you have the patience and determination to hang in there. Mine is only 9 years old. Adios....

    • 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...
