  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Desperately Need Copy Of C&p Exam

Question

Hello,

I just completed all three C&P Exams the VA set up for me through QTC. I am seeking an increased PTSD rating, a TBI rating, and TDIU. The first exam I had was with a doctor contracted by QTC who, after about an hour, told me in her EXACT WORDS: "Do not worry about anything. I will be recommending 100% disability for your PTSD and TBI symptoms." Naturally I was glad to hear that but I would feel even more comfortable SEEING her report.

I am also in the process of appealing my SSDI and a positive report/evaluation like that would GREATLY benefit that claim as well. How can I get a copy of her C&P exam?? It was not done at a VA hospital so that makes it harder. I am told that QTC likes to keep a tight lid on their exams.

Any suggestions based on experiences would be much appreciated as time is of the essence in regards to the Social Security Disability claim.

Thank you!

LC

I personally do not feel you will be able to obtain a copy of your

C&P exam/results, done by a QTC examiner, until after a rating decision

has finished adjudication and decisions have been made.

Thanks for your reply. You're probably right.... but I still wonder if there isn't a way around it. I've got to believe my VA case will be moving to the next phase soon since all the C&P exams have been completed and I have submitted every possible shred of evidence I can think of to help my case. Maybe, luck will be on my side and the decision will come down in time so I can get that report sent to me and submitted to Social Security before they rule on my appeal for disability...crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.:unsure:

When you filed for SSD did you include a medical report saying you were totally disabled for at least a year? Did SSD send you for an exam? I think your VA claim is in the bag if the QTC doctor does what she says.

John,

I filed for SSDI on 2/12/2011...I stated that I became disabled in early February 2011. They never sent me for an exam because I was advised to submit the attached "Document of Clarification" (see attached file for form letter I used). According to the SS regulations, nothing says a person has to have been disabled for a year...only that their current condition is LIKELY to be disabling for a period of 12 months or longer. I submitted Doctor's letters, etc. stating that my condition was not likely to improve and that I was not able to maintain gainful employment.

I was disapproved for SSDI on 9/16/2011 and filed my appeal on 9/21/2011.

I welcome any advice or comments you may have...Hadit.com has been a wealth of info- BETTER THAN AN ATTORNEY in my humble opinion!

    • 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...
