Ptsd Claim, Can't Use Attorney Yet

Question

Hello,

I posted a question on this board a couple of days ago regarding a PTSD claim I currently have filed, have only had two responses. I did email a copy of the latest paperwork to two attorneys, however both replied back since the claim was filed before 2007, I cannot seek councel until the claim is denied, or if I am unhappy with the award. They did both however ask me to contact them at a later date, I did email them the latest remand I have from VA. This has been going on for over 7 years, needless to say I am a little frustrated. I have pretty much filed everything on my own to date, I know this was not the smartest thing to do now.

Is there anyone on this board that would be willing, to look at my claim for me and advise me in what direction to go. I would of course be willing to pay you for your time, if interested please be somewhat qualified, and obviously privacy is of the utmost concern.

I just need some direction and advice, thank you for your time.

Brest Regards,

WH

Post all the information and you can get advice for free. If your claim is waiting for a decision you might just wait and then hire the lawyers. They have a legal responsibility and liability to do the best possible job.

Actually. Iam scheduled for another Comp. and Pension exam. I am currently working overseas. the VA called my home in FL last week and scheduled one for Sept. 12. I obviously cannot make it. I called and told them I could not be there, they said no problem to call them back about 30 days out and they would schedule another appointment. I would like to post more information about the claim on here but due to the nature of events and the unit I was in it would not be too hard to figure out my identity, I definately do not want that on a public forum.

Thanks for the replies.

I wouldn't necessarily agree with the above - but that's irrelevant.

You don't need to post anything about your unit or anything - just post what issues

you have submitted for service connection and if they were denied -

what exactly is stated in the Reasons and Bases Section to support the denial.

If you have had a "remand" from the VA - then you're at the BVA level

and can certainly have a lawyer.

It would be against the law for anyone here (or elsewhere other than a lawyer or law firm)

to help you for payment.

If you are that concerned about privacy, please don't ask people on a public web site

(definitely do not ask here) and do completely investigate qualifications.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
