    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

When did you make your PTSD claim?  That is probably when you will get your benefit date.  However, if the VA knew you had PTSD and did not assist you in getting your claim they have that duty.  I don't know if it applies in this example, but I would try and get it.  I had Agent Orange Registry exam in 2000 and doctor said I had three AO conditions.  It meant nothing until I filed claims.  I got no retro back to 2000 date.

When did the VA grant the 50% for a different MH disability?

I AM OIFAND OEF VETERAN, I GOT OUT THE SERVICE IN 2005, I WENT TO THE VA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2006, MY PRIMARY DOCTOR DIAGNOSED ME WITH PTSD BACK IN 2006 " 

What did you do then,..... did you formally file for PTSD?

Did they deny the claim?

If so can you scan and attach here (Cover C file #, name prior to scanning it) the denial due to the 2006 claim?

The Reason and bases part and also the evidence list.

I suggest you remove or try to delete all of the personal identifying info in the pfd.

Please do same for the 2007 decisions if you can attach it here:

" I AM OIFAND OEF VETERAN, I GOT OUT THE SERVICE IN 2005, I WENT TO THE VA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2006, MY PRIMARY DOCTOR DIAGNOSED ME WITH PTSD BACK IN 2006 " 

 

It is the 2007 VA decision that we need to see ( cover any Personal identifying info prior to scanning it.)

    • 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...
