  • 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

It looks like I may be headed to residentail care soon?

Question

Good morning everyone.

Over the past week or two I have been doing phone interviews for out of state residential long term care for PTSD-MST.  Yesterday I was called on told I was excepted and they had a sport for me as early as next week.  They admissions coordinator asked me how I would be able to get the the treatment center in Roseburg Oregon which is about six hours of non stop driving one way.  I am a 51/50 high risk patient and am not allowed to drive sent when I was released from BH-ICU lock down from the 4th thru the 11th, the doctor told me that transportation will be ultimately be figured out for me by the VA due to my sever panic, anxiety, SI and inability to drive.  Yesterday morning I told the residential treatment admissions coordinator, what my treating physician had said about travel and he said he would call him.   I did not hear back one way of the other.

 

This morning, I was looking over the appointment calendar on E-benefits and noticed a new appointment that I did not schedule located in Roseburg Oregon on the 26th..    I don't know if they plan to call me on the 26th of April or if my planned admission is on that date?

My thoughts are to give Roseburg and or Mather VA Hospitals, a call this morning and if they do not answer, I might try the VA transportation department at Mather Ca.?

Anyone have  experience or thoughts on this ?

 

Thanks in advance

    • 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...
