  • 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'm awaiting now to schedule two C&Ps one for a skull fracture where the first doctor opined 7 years ago that the doctors from my sTBI where incorrectly dx with this because they could second guess not one but about 6 or 7 other doctors from my from my intial injury and the months that followed with rehab. It's all Bs that made me wait years to get what I should have originally have gotten 7 years ago. They are now scheduling my exam for my DVT since I was just at the doctor two months ago they wanted to check the severity. Both of these issues were just for service connection so I hope that's a good sign. Then I had two for july 6th but the provider canceled and rescheduled on the 20th of July for increases for PTSD and my TBI review since the Chronic AD doctor separated my symptoms now they want to look at the other two again. I really don't care I'm canceling I'm not going to give them anything they just made me Permanent and Total with that exam in the decision so my opinion there is no reason to waste my time driving 2 hours for nothing to gain im already 100 p and T.

Just from the appeals but my attorney want me to write a letter to withdraw like I said, but still haven't spoke to him just his secretary he's been in court all last week. I'm still curious if he struck a deal.

Sounds like he's dodging you. "In Court all Week long," really? Court doesn't start till 9 am and is done by 3 pm. He doesn't have access to a Cell or Email, please.

Have you sent him an Email regarding his recent Legal Advice? When he told you to withdraw your Appeals, did he articulate his reasoning for the Withdrawals?

I didn't ask at first that's how i feel now if he doesn't respond soon I will be going to my 3 different C & Ps. He has nothing to do with my new claim so when he asked me to close it I should have asked he just said you know you can only get one rating and when the doctor seperated the symptoms that's when my PTSD and my new TBI review was ordered by the VA. At the same time I was just found Permanent and Total for both the PTSD and TBI residuals which are lumped together. I don't know if he thinks. If they are seperated that could void the P and T based on the one rating. I am just worried about losing it since my wife and kids all have VAchamp now and DEA benefits.

Was "No Future Exams Scheduled," noted on your recent (Date?) IU Award Letter?  What SC's are listed as the Nexus for your IU Rating in the Award Letter?

Are you 55+? When was your TBI sustained?

A friend age 72, IU T & P (NFES) since early 2015 due primarily to his PTSD, filed an FDC for A & A in early 16. The Denial Letter indicated that a Review of his VMC Med Recs resulted in a determination that his PTSD (SC 70% 2011) had improved from 70% to 50% SC.  The Denial Letter also stated that his IU Award would continue.

    • 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...
