  • 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

Conflicting Examiner Decision

Question

Hello fellow vets:

Wording from the examiner was "Can do moderate physical labor with his diabetes, but "Would have difficulty using his fine motor skills, requiring light touch sensations. Also has

bi-lateral hand weakness. (regarding my bilateral upper/lower neuropathy). Was a letter carrier for many years.

I was denied TDIU. 

My NOD was carefully written out by a wonderful VSO; still waiting on final decision.

Could there be a conflict on the decision?

Thank you very much 

Make sure to call your mom if you can!

"Can do moderate physical labor with his diabetes, but "Would have difficulty using his fine motor skills, requiring light touch sensations. Also has

bi-lateral hand weakness"

Classically, the VA would use " Can do moderate physical labor" as an excuse to deny. This comes from the "old days", when physical labor was all that the VA really considered.

As to appealing, I likely would. But, I don't know the exact details of this case.

Frustration and the VA seem to go together. My lawyer sent a letter to me saying that they no longer represent me concerning VA claims.

I suspect that it's a matter of the amount due them (not large) if I prevail. What irks me is that they were very happy to take a cut of appeal awards that were really based upon my previous actions, and the Nehmer court rulings, without much in the way of work on their part. Then, just to add insult, the VA EBennies will allow you to appoint a representative, but there is nothing concerning "UN-appoining one".

**d damn it chuck I hate to hear that from you.  Please contact "Legal Help for Veterans" they will help anybody nationwide who has a solid claim or a solid appeal and I'm sure they would love to take over for your jerk lawyer.

If you've got a lot coming to you, though, please consider calling not one but many lawyers because LHFV may ask for 20% (or more?) and you may not like that if another lawyer asks for 10%.  On the other hand consider that their time is actually valuable.   But yeah, http://www.legalhelpforveterans.com/ is legit.

    • 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.
