Question

I had a C&P exam related to sexual trauma and I said to the therapist, I think he was going to try and rape me and she put that I said he tried to rape me. Then for my combat experience, she wrote down the location wrong. Both of these things conflict with my statements. Will this hurt my case?

The C&P exam results include a section where the doc opines whether or not it is service connected. What did they say? The answer should include something like "Is due to; more likely; least as likely; less than likely; is not due to"

Additionally, the VA will verify the stressor. Did you send in a stressor letter and other evidence? Do you know if the VA confirmed the stressor?

I requested and submitted the evidence from the case opened by CID regarding this matter and the combat incident is of course already confirmed due to the documentation kept nowadays, but yes I did send the stressor letter with my own evidence as well. and yes it was confirmed that it is service connected. The point is though, what the therapist wrote is not what I said.

I would wait for the rating. If it is not what you think it should be then you can raise these issues on appeal. It really depends on what the doctor concludes about your stressors and if you MST/PTSD is service connected. If the VA accepts your stressors then I don't see a problem.

cc- my medical records and C&P's have no small number of errors, omissions and downright fabrications, but I got mine.

If you see glaring discrepancies on your copy of the C&P that you think may be detrimental to your case, I'd submit corrections to the VA.

Many details that look huge to us are completely overlooked by the raters, so hang in there and we'll hope for the best. :smile:

Thank you and I hope you're right. What kind of errors are there if you don't mind me asking?

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.
