  • 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

Difference Between Mild, Moderate And Severe Tbi

Question

I was looking at my C&P and see the statement "suffers from a mild TBI". I had a 3 inch by 4 inch piece of skull removed and documented underlying brain damage. My question is, II lost a large piece of skull, have brain damage, disfiguring scar, chronic migrains and numerous sequal problem and the C&P states "mild TBI" what does it take to be classified as moderate or severe?

Just doesn't make sense, I would have thought I have at least a moderate TBI if not severe.

Thanks

VA has proposed to punch up their definitions of TBIs as mild, moderate and severe,

as within this link:

I didnt post the whole regulation.

It would be great if you might be able to comment on this reg, I am working on my comment this afternoon, as you,in fact, are one of the disabled veterans these proposed new TBI regs could help,in getting a proper rating.

This is the past TBI rating schedule:

Are you unemployable solely due to your TBI residuals?

Did the C & P doc make any statement to that effect in the C & p results?

Did the C & P cover all the residuals you mentioned here?

("suffers from a mild TBI" "mild" my butt)

Brother,I am in complete agreement with you. I think it is past time vets stopped looking at the va the same way the American public at large Views them. In my humble opinion, the entire va system is a facade the politicians set up to permit the rest of our non-serving citizenry to sleep better at night believing they have done a righteous service to those who bear and have Bourne the brunt of the nations wars, nothing more. To the veteran however this system serves the real purpose of separating the vet from what's due him to the extent possible or at least delaying just long enough for them to make the most interest on what they do pay out . Basically the excuse of war gives the politicians access to the slush fund while delaying payments to the vets gives them more time at the casino gambling with the cash. Both the public and the vet lose in this deal while the politicians laugh all the way to the bank. It's a sad game, but we have to endure it because its the only game in town.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
