    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

Do an IRIS request as to the status of your claim. A congressional inquiry would also help. Otherwise it is impossible to to answer your question without actually working at the RO and pulling the claim. If you have a Service Officer, inquire from them where your appeal is in the process.

my vso (American Legion) would not directly answer my question,, she only said it used to take 8 months... and that answer was about 4 months ago.. and she works in the same buidling as the San Diego regional claims office is located..

I can only extrapolate that she has no clue...

I always receive the same response that the claims are worked in the order that they are received. Too my limited knowledge on this subject I believe there is no computer tracking data that they use. It must be the old fashion way such as I used when I was in the military. I had about 5 in boxes and 1 out box. The to do file was stacked in boxes, under the floor, ect. We only had type writers, no computers or even zerox machines for years.

If this is the same system the VA s still using, then its quite obvious what happens when the cleaning person accidentally bumps into your file which places your file into another holding pattern.:rolleyes:

I keep hearing that calling them, and bugging people, asking for inquiries only worsens the situation.. so I will not call for investigations... call me parnanoid, but I blieve that people at the va will reatliate and throw your file away or lose it if you rock the boat... I am hoping that other vets who hear things or know things will speak up... I am in a bad situation, and don't know how long I have to live.. having an evil rotten disease like I have (I have many bad diseases), I can get very sick and die quickly... I am not exagerrating... I suffer greatly.. I just want justice before things can get any worse.. Other vets can help other vets just by passing on any info on what's going on at some offices.. if there was staight honesty I would most likely never have gotten so sick to begin with... the system is broken and full of bad people... I need the decent people to only say anonymously if the offices in question are processing what years... or whatever else..

I truly believe most people qwould be unable to deal with the suffering I go through.. most people have no clue what real suffering is..

I know there are some excepetions with people who have less to live for... but I try to keep my sanity and push on.. but feel that some people in power either don't give a sh*t.. or are stupid...

they get way with this ...

I just want fairnesss... too much to ask...

Even though I report most injuries on active duty I never reported all, I screwed that up.. but I still have more than enough evidence to win.,. I just need honesty from the va..

    • 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...
