  • 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

SPO won his CUE claim!!!!

Question

I try to highlight the winning claims here but I forget to....

The CUEs that succeed here are the best templates to use to see how the veteran has advanced their CUE issue.

They are very encouraging for others to see.

***************GOOD JOB BERTA***********************************************

I read over your advice to SPO, and, you nailed this one again.  Your advice was so good, it bears repeating:

(Please allow me to paraphrase Berta's advice):

+++++++Most Cue Claims that are denied are denied because the VETeran failed to allege the specific regulation that was violated.  ++++++++

     Cue seekers need to tatoo this on their arm.  Your cue claim needs to have the number of the 38 CFR, M21, MR,  or USC that VA violated.  No number, no cue.

I appreciate all the help!  I actually ended up submitting a statement of my own along with the DAV statement since they didn't identify a specific regulation.  I'm not sure if that made a big difference overall, but worth the time to submit it for sure.

SPO did a great job...all I did is give him support.... it was a prime facie CUE.

But you are right to repeat that Broncovet.

My SMC CUE was primarily based on their violation of the SMC Mandate.

I even sent them a brief copy of VBM (NVLSP) as to how they described this mandate.

They can violate everything from a diagnostic  code to a Fast Letter,OGC Pres Ops , and anything in M21.

M21 is a good way to bolster CUE claims because once you narrow down their legal error often M21-1MR will support what they didnt do right as well as have citations from the CAVC and other references to VA case law, to support what the VA is supposed to do.

I even used a page from the 1988 M21-1MR for doctors to win my wrongful death claim.I found it at the Corning NY law library.

I had spent hours there looking over their legal stuff and finally sat on the floor to rest.(no internet then)They had VA stuff mixed in with all sorts of other legal articles and cases...and suddenly something caught my eye...a folder marked M21 VA Physicians guide.....within minutes I found superb evidence to support what I already had.

One page dated 1988..... malpractice does not need a proof of intent but just in case, I now had proof of intent and it was dynamite...and written in the same year  they began to malpractice on my husband.Dynamite.

SPO, any chance you could post a redacted copy of your Recent Award? What is your new combined SC? An appeals timeline would be helpful.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
