  • 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

C&P concerns

Question

VETERANS...I wanted to express to all that we must stand up and united against what continues to be wrong with the Veterans Association. Specifically I want to talk to all about C&P exams. I recently had a C&P exam which in the end has me doing whatever I can and searching for information regarding what happened. During the C&P exam I from the beginning requested a form 10-5345. The examiner stated they did not know what that was. So I was from the beginning ready to let the examiner I was aware of what was going to happen. As the exam was completed I made sure I in fact turned in the release of information form 10-5345. As I read the notes I could not believe the examiner had written false information. Basically the examiner quoted things I never said which would hurt my claim. Today I received an email to complete that had to do with my recent C&P visit. This was sent by the VA. Since all of the scandalous exposure of the VA there has been a string of these surveys sent to Veterans. I can only hope these surveys will in fact be read and acted upon. I completed the survey explaining what happened and am in hopes that someone that has integrity from the VA will contact me to discuss further. I am also going to go over this with my VSO and further fill out paperwork on this incident. My point to all is DO NOT sit around and allow these things to happen. Lets all be proactive and keep pushing as has been the case now for about 3 years. I can see us gaining ground, but we must not rest on our laurels.

Those were my thoughts and I'm still OCD about little things. My advice is emailing people at the VA works when you know who to email at the present moment 2 years ago was Ms Hickey Ted Ebert and  they answered me every time maybe in two weeks but always a reply. And now even Shulkin responds to emails by either emailing you or in my case having the Regional office reach out and explain what's going on...

You just received the VBA's version of " duty to assist ".

I contacted the WH hotline over my last C&P experience.

Waste of time.

Don't quit fighting.

The Modus Operandi of the VBA is to send the surveys out to the veteran BEFORE you find out how awful their decision was.

That is only a very small taste of how the VBA will cover their ass.

    • 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...
