Can Bva Go Against Their Own Prior Decision?


JT24usn

Question

I found a previous BVA decision the mirrors my gall bladder symptoms yet mine was rated 10 by the RO and BvA granted the other vets at 30. I submitted this BVA decision with my BVA appeal. How could they go against their on decision if they deny mine?

T8r,

BVA decisions do not set precedence.

It's real easy for two different decision makers to come to

different conclusions .

That BVA decision will apply only to that claimant.

So it won't carry any weight or be used by comparison to my claim? I figured it could be used as a reference and my previous cp exam done last month. I jut find it crazy that one rating will be 30 and another 10 because under eating guidelines for gall bladder there is no definition I mild or severe. So how do they know other than to submit someone else's BVA decision with less symptoms than mine that got 30 percent

Thank you for the responses. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. I don't see a need for an IMO. What food woul that do when the cp pretty much had most of symptoms right. The rater just didn't use them.

You can submit it but they don't have to accept what's been decided. Now, if you can find something like it at the court, that could help. When I did mine, I used much of the text I found, both at the court and the BVA, that was like mine, in proving my claim.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

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

    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
