transcripts from bva hearing

Question

Hi I am new forgive me. I have TBI. PTSD and dementia. I am computer illeteriate. I had my bva conference hearing at my local VARO in Nashville Tn. The Judge was great it was short and simple about 30 minutes. My Hearing was Jan 19 2018 this year. The Judge said it will take 6 to 8 weeks for a copy of transcripts. I am advanced on dockett and flagged homeless. As of today the BVA still does not have my transcripts. Does any body know what the delay is? My email is ricktn40@yahoo.com I do not think I can log in and look at answers. Please help and advise. Iraqi freedom vet 4 years USMC semper fi.

 I assume you had an informal or formal of record conference Hearing review?Those transcripts should already be of record.

Call your R.O. And ask them about the transcripts 

Contact your VBA (veterans benefits Admin) at your local VAMC and request a copy of those transcripts...CUE may be involved  because they should have sent them to you along with your SOC

If they failed to send them to you   it could be a CUE on the VA. If it would change the outcome of your claim?

I had a informal DRO Hearing at my RO And the DRO Mention before the hearing started if I wanted an Informal hearing or a formal hearing?  he opt for me to have the informal hearing and would turn off the recording devise...

However there was a Transcriptionist at my hearing & a Rating Specialist..after the hearing was over the DRO mention I would be receiving my award letter in about 4 weeks......4 weeks passed and I received my award packet in the mail just like he said and it had the complete transcript of my hearing word for word.

I still have that in my records folder here at home.  this was back in 2002 .

So things maybe different now as I have heard from my buddy that his DRO Hearing was in formal and he never recieved the transcripts. i believe his Hearing was in 2013/ 2014

Transcripts would be Secondary, what about the BVA Decision? If you had POA-VSO Representation at the BVA RO Hearing, that Rep should be of great assistance, but then again maybe not. Don't you have an RO Homeless social Worker? He/she might have some RO Rating Dept contacts that track everything down.                 Forget about the Judge being "Nice," you or anybody with you, have an opinion as to how the Judge was leaning Decision wise? Any discussions regarding the need for Remands?

i have went thru the gauntlet, my claim is at the BVA the schedules a video confernece hearing before a veteran law judge at the Nashville VARO. I had an attorney. The Judge was in DC. After the hearing we went on record asking for a copy of the transcripts The Judge says it takes about 6 to 8 weeks to prepare transcripts. And he will get me a decision quickly because I am fast track. It is an outside scource that does the transcripts not the BVA.. So far no transcripts. I called the Bva weekly and they say the contractor doing transcripts is back logged. All VSO and even my attorney has never heard of such a long delay. You think Trump screwed something up? my hearing was jan 19th 2018 this year

Maybe, you just need to take a few deep breaths and relax. Your VA Lawyer doesn't have the Decision yet, probably isn't anything you can do. Wringing your hands over something you have no control over, is counterproductive.                                You actually have a VA MH DX of Dementia? Just my opinion now, but I think you need and will receive a VA Fiduciary Appointment, regardless of the outcome of this Appeal. Is your TBI and PTSD SC'd, what percentages?

what exactly do you mean''the judge was great it was short and simple about 30 minutes''??

Do you mean you' think '' the judge was favorable to your claim  or sounded positive that the judge  is going to award you? for these claims?

are these claims for PTSD -TBI, AND DEMENTIA ? First time claims on APPEAL?

meaning you were denied on all these claims and you filed NOD and had this video conference that lasted about 30 minutes.

Did you recieve a SOC (statement of the Case) from the first denial from your R.O.?

And you have not heard a word since you had the hearing in Jan 19th 2018.

What does your VSO say?

why are you interested in the transcripts? you was there for your vedio hearing with the judge  right? you know what was said, the transcripts is not going to decide this or give a decision one way or the other. THE TRANSCRIPTS ARE  A MATTER OF RECORD IN YOUR HEARING.

you need to present medical evidence and Dr's reports to the judge thats in your favor  the judge needs to see this type of evidence and you need to present it to him/her.

Ask your VSO or your Attorney  or who ever has access to your files  ask them to check on this matter for you , ask whats up with your claim that supposedly had a decision made by this BVA Judge.

Anyway we need more information as to what you need  besides the transcripts.

and Welcome to Hadit.

    • Sleep apnea- does the DBQ cover the "medically necessary/required" language?
      Hey everybody! Long time lurker, first time poster.

      My question is regarding the sleep apnea language that specifies that a prescription of a breathing assistance device is "medically necessary" for a 50% rating:

      Assuming that a vet is already prescribed a CPAP/APAP by the VA, does the sleep apnea DBQ portion under 2B "IS CONTINUOUS MEDICATION REQUIRED FOR CONTROL OF A SLEEP DISORDER CONDITION?" fulfill that language requirement?

    • VBA testimony and GAO report-C & P examiners
      As you all know, C & P exam results control almost all types of claims. VA employees have no choice but to go along with a negative C & P exam that will deny a claim. Some vets are quite willing to rebutt faulty exams and ask for a new C & P exam. For others, it will take a costly IMO/IME in most cases.

    • Lumbosacral Strain and Vertebrae fractures caused by osteopenia
      Hi.  I have a couple questions and welcome all recommendations for my disability claim.  I am currently 10% disabled for lumbosacral strain and deferred decision for this and vertebrae fractures caused by osteopenia.  I had a MRI February 2018 and results include moderate compression fracture of L1, mild to moderate compression fracture of L2, moderate to severe compression fracture of L3, mild compression fracture of T11.  Additionally, L3 moderate spinal canal stenosis, L2 mild to moderate retropulsion with mild spinal canal stenosis, multilevel degenerative changes, multilevel disc bulges, disc herniations, L1-L2 mild broad-based disc bulge with mild spinal canal stenosis, L2-L3 mild broad based disc bulge with mild to moderate spinal canal stenosis,  L3-L4 mild to moderate broad based disc bulge and severe bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing.   I have read that these malfunctions should have been claimed individually.  Will the VA evaluate/rate each condition separately?  If not, I may have to appeal or submit a new claim.  What are some thoughts and suggestions.  Do these disabilities belong in the lumbosacral strain or the vertebrae fractures caused by osteopenia.  I am totally in the dark on this stuff.  I am pretty sure no diagnosis codes have been assigned.  What can I do to support my claim?  HELP!!!!!
