A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.

I think there are bilaterals there. Right and Left lower extremities. I make it 76 rounded to 80.

I should have explain this better, the:

30% left tibia with osteoarthritis is for left knee

30% recurrent subluxation is left knee

10% scaring is left knee

20% cervical spine condition is for his neck C3-C4 fusion

10% left thigh atrophy

10% right knee

I hope this helps. If it is bilateral does that mean you get rated more?

I dont think there is a Bilattarel issue here. looks like both extremities have their own conditions rated. I could be wrong.

Ok JBASSER you totally lost me. If the paired extremities have conditions affecting them then they fall under bilateral. I have pasted the paragraph from the CFR below.

"The use of the terms “arms” and “legs” is not intended to distinguish between the arm, forearm and hand, or the thigh, leg, and foot, but relates to the upper extremities and lower extremities as a whole. Thus with a compensable disability of the right thigh, for example, amputation, and one of the left foot, for example, pes planus, the bilateral factor applies, and similarly whenever there are compensable disabilities affecting use of paired extremities regardless of location or specified type of impairment."
