Conflicting Examiner Decision



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 My lawyer sent a letter to me saying that they no longer represent me concerning VA claims.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.

    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.


    • 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.


    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.
