  • 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

I feel like I can see the denial


Is it possible for the doctor to say at

Sure, but that may be just as good for you.  Any form of SC (direct, presumptive, secondary) pays as well.  When you go to the grocery store, they wont say, "Wait..is the money you are paying for this milk

"Direct" compensation or "secondary"?  The law requires Va to consider "all forms" of comp.  Otherwise, they could just ignore the presumptive if you did not know about it and ask for it.  They have to give it to you anyway, even if you dont know what "presumptive", "secondary", or "direct" even means.

Thank you just confirmed with case management my C&P is in as direct service connected. By technically Chronic Adjustment disorder is another mental issue which I've already have residuals of a TBI and PTSD at 70%... she said it might increase it but not counting my sheep in my sheepless night. They said the same was it was at 70 before they threw in the PTSD...She said she would find out and to call on Friday seriously these guys are a blessing to us all and there's only 3 people there in this office. Sad how 3 people can help us so much at the VA yet the rest delay our claims... I'm still confused with how my TBI is a MH issue..

We never know what or how they will rate things   their suppose to go by the RATING TABLES to what it is your claiming the severity of it and the symptoms 

this could be a good thing for you I would think?...just relax and wait and see what they say.

    • 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...
