  • 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 Results Question

Question

Just looked up my C&P exam results from Wednesday (6 Sept). Trying to figure out the results. It seems there may be an error in the first "B" and "C". Any thoughts? Thank you in advance.

 

TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED: [ MEDICAL OPINION FOR DIRECT SERVICE

CONNECTION ]

 

b. The condition claimed was less likely than not (less than 50%

probability) incurred in or caused by the claimed in-service injury, event

or illness.

 

c. Rationale: Based on interview and examination of the Veteran, review of

the Veteran's VBMS case file, review of the Veteran's VHA medical

records, and review of relevant medical references the Veteran's LEFT hips

conditions as described in the Hip Conditions DBQ are as least likely as not (50% or

greater probability) incurred during his military service as documented as

complaints of LEFT hip pain & assessment of LEFT iliotibial band syndrome

are documented in his STRs. As directed nexus is reasonably demonstrated the

secondary nexus question proximally is rendered moot.

 

 

TYPE OF MEDICAL OPINION PROVIDED: [ MEDICAL OPINION FOR SECONDARY SERVICE

CONNECTION ]

 

a. The condition claimed is at least as likely as not (50% or greater

probability) proximately due to or the result of the Veteran's service

connected condition.

 

c. Rationale: Based on interview and examination of the Veteran, review of

the Veteran's VBMS case file, review of the Veteran's VHA medical

records, and review of relevant medical references the Veteran does not have current

symptoms of plantar fasciitits. His current symptoms are attributable to

LEFT cuboid syndrome. The Veteran's LEFT cuboid syndrome is as likely as not

(50% or greater probability) proximately due to or the result of leg length

discrepancy due to altered gait biomechanics caused by the leg length

discrepancy.

I would take a guess they rate you at 50% and possibly 60%

the 60% from this, but I could be totally wrong on what this EXAMINER WAS THINKING.

''LEFT cuboid syndrome. The Veteran's LEFT cuboid syndrome is as likely as not

(50% or greater probability) proximately due to or the result of leg length

discrepancy due to altered gait biomechanics caused by the leg length

Thanks Buck. I was a little perplexed on the first opinion (hip) where he says "less likely than not" in para "b" and then "as least likely as not" in para "c".

I answered a different post from you today somewhere here -but  please disregard it-----I thought it was a possible grant for plantar faciititis- but this is a different C & P exam.

It is a better exam anyhow than the other one was. They should SC the left  leg disability. And any leg disability can cause a major foot disability. or even a bilateral foot disability.

Well.....claim is complete. Was hoping for a little more but at least they were all service comp. Not sure how I will proceed. Is the best option a "reconsideration" ? Does that have to be done within 60 days? I am preparing to have an "independent medical examination" before anything.

    • 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...
