From the terms and conditions, it sounds like they are a "we help do the legwork" type of entity, but they don't represent you in the same capacity of a regular VSO or law firm. I'll stay with Hadit.

Thanks Vync! I didn't even know that there were places out there that operated in that space besides a VSO or a Law Firm.

Like many others here, I have personally helped friends and family with the VA claims system nightmare. I guess someone put together a similar business model and ran with it. I don't know anything about that company and cannot tell if they are good or bad, but I remember Carlie (R.I.P.) telling me that regardless of who might help with my claim, the responsibility ultimately belongs to me. At that point, I stopped accepting a VSO typing up a one sentence "fire and forget" claim and took control of my own claims.

Agreed, that time commitment can get tiring at times though.

I recently discovered Had-it! and I really like it. My VA Comp claim is over 5 years old now. Two denied claims (VARO checked the NAVY & AIR FORCE first ( I was ARMY 1973-1979 ) my appeal denied with NO reason given and my NOD was filed successfully 12/28/2015. IT is lying at the VARO according to eBenefits. I was contacted by the attorney for VA in Kentucky and told me to cease communicating with the VA and move to a VSO. He asked which one I was going to use but I didn't know at the time. I went with the DAV but they have to have Power of Attorney to get my files from the VA. I suppose I should get an attorney as well. 

My oncologist (Vanderbilt-Nashville) states in his letter that I am 100% Disabled and goes on to mention that pancreatic cancer normally strikes men in their late 60's, I was 49.  He also states it is "at least as likely as not" that the radar radiation(s) caused my pancreatic cancer. For 8 & 1/2 years after the 9 hour Whipple Procedure I took 1200MG of morphine capsules daily, 60MG hydrocodone and a 100MCH Fentanyl patch changed every 3 days. When those started to cause damage to my heart, bones and brain he moved me over to the Interventional Pain Management Clinic where I was hospitalized for 30 hours and they implanted a "pain pump" in my lower left abdomen. IV tube runs around to my spine where they made a 3" vertical incision and pushed the diffuser tip up around the T3-T5 area and it flows 24/7. It helps a little but I still think I am at about a "5" on the standard physician smiley chart. I am homebound, can't drive more than a mile, 100% neuropathy in both hands and feet and have zero balance. My vision is fuzzy and I am diabetic due to the removal of over half my pancreas. 

 

Up to 6 surgeries now on my abdomen. Two were to implant rubber/steel mesh across my whole abdomen, the Whipple incision was so long it split open twice plus, I got a Staph infection during my 9 day stay in the hospital. Went home with a wound vac and a port in my upper RH chest for 6 months of IV chemo.

So, my stomach looks like a map of East Tennessee country roads. Along with everything else it sorta' sucks. But would I serve my country again? YOU BET!

Rick

    • 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.
