Question

air1    13

I filed clam 02/2012,denied and DRO denied,08/2015 I-9 certified at VBA-09/2015 VLJ hearing,while siting on decision I continue to go to my psych MD for Meds (4)and csw every month. I suffer from nightmares which they treat with Meds from beating from Military police while n service because I try stop fight between Arab trained on base and off duty MPs, I then was beaten later. My question , in April 2017 I had a nightmare were police were chasing me and I try to run from the police and doing so I jump out of bed and rupture my Achilles , which for 2 months waiting on MRI. Can I file a claim for his injury because my hip now bothers me with the walking boot and my foot is not the same as the other foot its stiff and atrophy in muscle loss.Will this hold up my case at BVA.Thanks!God Bless

A New Comp Claim should have no effect as to a  BVA Hold-up. What is the Denied Issue?

You've never filed for PTSD, why? Evidence of in-service incident?

VA in denial admitted that in-service incident happens but denied for PTSD and depression, at the hearing the judge just said she would look at all mental issues and consider acquired mental consideration for all. I now want to file for my injury to my Achilles tear and I have no surgery but my foot and ankle is totally different from left ankle with the stiffness and hip.How I file, related to my nightmares which I have continuing to this day.

My first claim waiting on  judge to review for decisIon so I might have screwed up claim, it also requesting total temporary.

Let me help you decide whether to file "now" or "wait for the BVA decision":

1.  It depends on whether you need money or not.  If you have all the money you will ever need, then wait.  

2.  However, if you need money, file right away.  

3.  You can calculate how much it will cost you to wait.  Lets say you think you will get 50 percent for PTSD.   Each month you delay filing will cost you about 978 if you have a spouse and child.  Less if you are single.  

4.  So, ask yourself, "how much can you afford to lose by delaying filing"?  

5.  For me, the answer is "zero", I cant afford to lose anything by delaying filing, so I would file now.  

But, lets say you can afford to lose 20,000 dollars.  Then, just delay about 20 months, and "poof" you lost your 20,000 dollars and you did not even need to go to a casino!  

How do I know this?  Because I made the stupid mistake of delaying filing for about 5 years.  If I had not done that, maybe I would not have lost my home to foreclosure.
