  • 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

Ftcaers

Question

There is a lot to FTCA claims.

I have been watching the Conrad Murray trial diligently.

The prime focus of a FTCA case is to prove that the VA did not meet a 'usual standard of care'=that being the same standard of care in the 'usual medical community.'and that these 'acts' or 'omissions of acts' caused additional disability or death to the veteran.

That was the sole focus of each FTCA charge I made in my case.The VA Peer reviews concurred.

AT first they denied but I aggressively fought back-I had good weapons (the medical records were all I really needed)

The Murray trial had a cardio doc and a Sleep Study expert on last week- as witness for the prosecution (regarding Michael Jackson's death)

Monday the state is calling their last witness but the testimonies have been re shown on CNN this wee3kend.

The cardio and sleep study doc gave a step by step statement as to 6 areas in which Jackson's doctor (Murray) did not meet a reasonable standard of medical care.As a matter of fact the doctor made "gross deviations" from that care.

My chilling Sec 1151 award letter ends with a statement that makes this same point.

Anyone with a med malpractice case or Sec 1151 claim before the VA should watch this trial.

After last state's witness, the defense will lay out their case.

These televised trials can be great learning experiences.

The standard of proper medical care is the same standard for the VA as for any private doctor or hospital whether the malpractice victim is Michael Jackson or anyone else.

I dont agree with those who think the charges against Murray should have been murder one or two.He had no malice of forethought when he treated MJ. MJ was his cash cow.There was no intent.I dealt with negligence/malpractice and then a VA cover up of that negligence- a different ball game.

But still

this trial reveals exactly what proof is needed to prove negligence/malpractice for Section 1151s as well as FTCA cases.

Some 1151 claims succeed because of an unexpected serious medical result from a med or a surgical procedure.

Some succeed because there is medical evidence outside the VA that a specific procedure has caused additional complications known to the standard medical community.

Some 1151 claims should be also claimed as secondaries to an established SC as well as under 1151.

"deviations" from standard medical practices, with serious results are bonafide malpractice issues as the Murray trial shows.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
