    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

Giving Up is Success for Me

Recommended Posts

This is my SUCCESS STORY!!!!  

I’m through with the fighting!!! I can’t do this anymore! I don’t want to fight the va and their screwed up system on my own! I hired an attorney to do this for me. He works with a Doctor that does IME’s and said that with all the information and paperwork I have, 100% is very good. I should have listened to my wife and did this years ago!(23years of fighting) The attorney works on a 20% contingency basis which in my book is well worth the headache and heartache!!!! I will have to pay for the IME’s upfront but with this attorneys win rate and positive ratings it’s worth the shot. I want to thank all of the great people who for many years have provided me with great information and advice! Without your help I would be crazier than I am right now and still sitting at 30% instead of the 80% percent. Again I’m done, but not through! The war is with a stronger and smarter army now!  Thanks again for everyone’s help!!! I’ll keep you posted on things!!!!

I hired an attorney also.  I completely get it, it is very exhausting.  Berta says if you dont have PTSD, you will after dealing with the VA for a while.  As I have explained before, you dont always even have to pay for the attorney, because EAJA will likely pay the fees when you go to the CAVC.  

This is my 4th trip to the CAVC.  First, a writ of mandamus because VA shredded my claim.  Second was NVSLP represented me at the CAVC in a board appeal.  Third was Julie Glover at the CAVC.  Fourth is now and Chris Attig represents me at the CAVC.  In each time, for me, I won at least a Remand, and wound up with additional benefits.  It will be a few months before I know how this one will turn out.  

     The VA wants us to make a career out of fighting them for benefits.  You win a little at a time, and dont often win the whole enchilada.  

     This isnt giving up, its bringing out the big guns we should have been using earlier!!!

It reminds me of a cartoon.  IN the cartoon, there was a man who sold machine guns.  The general was fighting a war, and the machine gun salesman came up to him to sell him his product.  The general told him he didnt have time to see the saleman..couldnt he see he was fighting a war with the Indians?  (They were fighting them with muskets, and reloading).

Lol, yeah, like bringing a knife to a gun fight! Making my PTSD, PTSDX2!!!! I know that it’s a big game for them but, I’m going to let the guys with the degrees shoot for awhile! My last C&P was the last straw! I’m going for the IME’s from someone with more clout to shoot down the NP’s opinion. Bull- - - - !!!!! That’s all it is!! I just wish we could hold them responsible for their incompetence!! For instance, 2015 x-ray for my neck said bulging disks but disk space equal in distance. Fast forward to 2016 MRI says disk bulging with congenital disk fusion! Really no joke! It’s just crazy incompetence!!! Like I said, time for the big guns!!!!

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
