    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

C&p A Done Deal

Question

I want to thank everyone for your info and help.It was most useful when i had my C&P exam today.

She was a very nice doctor and listened to me carefully ,writing and taking notes.almost all the time.

She asked me every question on the PTSD practice manual i got from this web site,it really helped me.

The doctor said that i articulated the stressor event very well and that she would recommend to the VA that the get me on some medication as soon as possible,

she could see that i needed it.

She also said that my report would be favorable[whatever that means.

the exam took 1 hour and i percieved it as one of the good exam.

So , the question is. what is next?

Do i need to get ready to fight or just wait until i get a letter from the VA.

Does the VA take the DR's reccomendation?

I am truly hoping this is a good sign for the future of this PTSD claim.

I said i would let you know how this exam went so there it is.

GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY VETERAN

Doogie, The VA rater looks at your smr, any other evidence you may have sent, and also reads the C&P exam notations...many times the examiner may offer a hint as to the possibility of receiving a grant but they do not make the decision, but may feel as in the past, others have received favorable results with answers to the questions you offered. Also they may have written documentation that you were more likely than not or most likely affected by the stressors you claimed. With these opinions and statements it would be more favorable for you. Good luck and be prepared to wait a while too. Some have been received notification within a few mths of C&P's and one I know had his positive results 8 days post VA receiving exam results(with a weekend in the middle too).

Personally I waited mths for the results back 6 yrs ago and faster with more current claims...

By the way, where did you find the PTSD practice manual?

I would like to read it before my next visit, even though the VA doc said I had PTSD.

Thanks

    • 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...
