  • 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

Question

I have come to learn my medical evidence was withheld all my life due to "ANTICIPATION OF LITIGATION", from what I gather, and the VA used a couple FOIA EXCEPTIONS OR EXEMPTIONS in withholding them. I am asking why the VA would anticipate me suing them before I even got discharged? Just asking. Thanks

Vic,

I would be interested in where you found "ANTICIPATION OF LITIGATION". Not because I don't believe you, but, can it be a real thing in ones file at a medical instatution?

The reason I ask is my wife had some poor work done to her by a doctor and we are having a hard time finding some of the records, that in this case, would prove he was at fault, etc.

Again, while I believe you, I just can believe that is a thing.  But then again, nothing suprises me much anymore.

Thanks,

Hamslice

PS, how about a court order for your records...?

VR, the "I have come to learn" and "from what I gather" statements certainly needs some in depth explanation.

Could you post whatever Evidence (redacted) and it's source that leads you to this conclusion of the VA  colluding over the past 35+ yrs, in "Hiding Medical Evidence" from both your SMRs and VMC Medical Records?

Without factual evidence supporting your post, this sounds like an all too often "Conspiracy Theory."

I had periods of depression and my medical records were witheld from me then.  Did you go to your "release of information" office at your VAMC and ask them for your records?  If you have not done this, then you should.  

If you remember VA is not a unified body, just "go to someone else" when employee A says no, and you usually get the deisred result, tho it may take several tries.

Also, it sounds like you are likely a "Nehmer" class Vet.  You can contact the NVLSP and they will help you, including attorney representation at no cost to you if you qualify.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
