  • 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

CUE, NOD or WAIT ???


Filed for TDIU was denied however VA sent me for C&P exams for Cervical, Lumbar, Migraines and Mental Health, I was told even though my my cervical, lumbar and Migraines should all be increased (will show below C&P exam statements) the examiner will NOT use those contentions on making his decision because they are all 3 in an appeal status (dated 2013 still waiting on appeal) so it screws me out of TDIU.

Question?? Even though those 3 are in appeal shouldn't he of raised the ratings according to the C&P exam results immediately? or does that too have to wait for the appeal to go through??  If these increases are given to me i would be at 100% scheduler.


Was rated at 30% cervical due to ROM's this recent C&P exam states (Unfavorable Ankylosis of the entire cervical spine, that should go to 40%)

Was rated at 40% Lumbar Thoracic do to ROM's this recent C&P exam states (Favorable Ankylosis of the entire thoracolumbar spine, that should go to 50%)

Was rated at 30% for Headaches including Migraines and this new C&P exam states (YES to having very prostrating and prolonged attacks of migraines/non-migraine pain of severe economic inadaptability this should be rated at 50%)

Need Advice Please!

You were denied TDIU but have 90%?

Were you employed when they denied TDIU?

Have you started a different thread here recently?

I think he  means the 3 disability's he has been  S.C. & rated for and if he gets them  increase to 50% 40% 40%  that will put him up to the 100% Unfortunately this is wrong  if this is his way of thinking.

In my calculations with VA Math  those rating combined is a rating of 82%  so it would be a combined rating of 80%

    • 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...
