    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

There is a group of Attorneys,(who kick Butt) located in Montgomery,Alabama. I just eMailed them to see if they would be taking on the VA-helping us with our claim.

Might help if Vets would sent them eMail asking for there help.

You can check them out at BeasleyAllen.com

webmaster@beasleyallen.com (eMail)

We really need to try to get Attorneys who are willing to learn VA Law,to be on our side.

June 2007 is just around the corner.

I cant agree more-

I am going to try to collect a data base here in New York State-

maybe if others volunteer by the state they live in we can get one going-

then again- if I was a lawyer, interesting in this new reg- I would start advertising at all the vets sites.

ALLSUP, Inc- the SSA people who have been mentioned here -called me the other day and were very interested in all this- they aren't lawyers but still a good potential source to pass this info on- as they see many vets with SSA applications-who could potentially have SC disability too-

and vice versa- they liked this site and want any SC vet who might be eligible for SSA to access their site and they can give an assessment on their potential SSA claim in a very short period of time.

I couldn't help but say to the nice woman Ruth who called me from ALLSUP- that I wished she worked for the VA-she and the firm at ALLSUPs are disability specialists who view disabilties in a different way than a ten-fifteen minute C & P exam could possibly cover. They have a fee and therefore are quite thorough in reviewing the records.

If they take the claim- and the claim must fulfill the work credit etc SSA criteria- their success rate is 97 % for SSA awards.

I dont really know why they were so interested in the pending lawyer regs but still-

anyone who can pass this info on might reach lawyers who would access our site as she did-

I am glad this is a separate topic because more info is sure to come out before the regs are in affect.

I was a federal civilian employee and I got hurt on the job. There were just a handful of lawers nationwide that would handle federal workers compensation claims because the feds had made sure their was no money in it like with VA claims. This was supposed to make it non-adversarial, ha, ha. I did a lot of reading and talking to other injured federal employees. Finally, I started getting phone calls from lawyers who actually did federal workers compensation asking ME for information. Some injured employees who had taken disability retirement started working with other current employees with injuries on a fee base.

I bet something similar will happen with VA claims. Those who can work and have a lot of knowledge about the VA system could possibly make some money helping these lawyers work claims. I can't work because I get IU but someone out there could maybe make a living helping lawyers get up to speed. The VA lawyer connection will become an industry just like the SSA/disability claims business. You know the lawyers will probably hire ex-VA claims raters to help them defeat the VA. This way the lawyer can charge a big price and pay the ex-VA rater to do all the work and still make money for doing nothing except showing up at hearings. Just watch some law firms hire VA broken down DRO's to work as consultants to beat the system.

I would like to know if anyone knows if there is a lawyer in or near Houston Texas that will fight for me?

I read all this lawyer talk on the board but, I am still confused. Can I hire a lawyer or not? Where do I find one? I am sick (literally) and tired and I do not remember things anymore. I cannot fight them anymore as I cannot maintain cohesive or cognitive approach. Hell, I can't even remember what I did last. I do know (as my wife has pointed out) now that I have had 3 or 4 VSOs and I can't tell you who they are. Well that's enough complaining. I just need to know who what where how to get a lawyer involved.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
