  • 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

Someone answered your question yesterday, in a different post. They gave the link to the DBQs.

Has VA ever given you a Nsc diagnostic code yet for your condition? (  One for heart and one for HBP?)

reason I ask is that hypertensive vascular disease can involve cardiac vascular disease.

This is a brief but good article on hypertensive cardiovascular disease.

Do you have an inservice nexus?

Hello all, I am 10 % SCD for Hypertension. I have had a history of high blood pressure and High cholesterol.Last year I had 2 stent's put in my heart after taking the Nuclear stress test. I do not know of any codes the VA put in my records. I was at 0% SCD when I got out of the military and was increased to 10% a few years ago. My doctor asked me if I ever submitted a claim for Hypertensive Vascular Disease-Service Connected and I said I never thought about it.She I should submit it.  I just recently submitted for this through my VSO.  Any feedback on if I will receive a C&P and what to expect.Please reply back.

Is your "my Doctor" a VMC Cardiologist, get a copy of the Dr's Treatment Notes from your MHV and attach as a pdf to your FDC. Should Seal the Deal.

How about posting a redacted copy of the Clinician Treatment Notes for the day she made the statement regarding filing the claim.

After the Stents, you were temporary 100%. right? Did you get a New or Increase Cardiac SC after the Temporary 100% Comp increase?

Hello All, I was not rated a 100% after my stents. My primary care doctor suggested I file a claim for my stents due to it being related to Hypertension. Please reply all.

    • 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...
