Did you present your self to the best you can?

Before calling did you have all your claims nicely laid out similar to a glossary in a book? Or was it gibberish, a backed up toilet, and for them pulling teeth, and or guns blazing, shooting from the hip.

Did you expect them to know everything about you instantaneously seconds are dialing the number? 

Were you hostile? Or were you cool, collective, and calm?

Why are you angry about Ken Carpenter not having a website? It's cost a lot to maintain a business website, there is software security updates, backups sent to another out of state server, email, web pages, bad code, broken links, hardware replacements/failures, and a dozen other things maintaining it. Ken Carpenter is old school.

You have been on this site for a number of years, so you know where to look for an Advocate, and your first choice may not accept you. Just as you found out that he does only "TBI claims."

First impressions matter, cover your 6, loose lips sink ships, among other saying we learned from the military.

Lawyers are not there to hold your hand but to represent veterans.

Have you consider paying a broke college senior who just graduated to help you organize your "shit" so its completely more saleable to top VA advocates.

Ken Carpenter has such a fabalous success ratio, he does not need to "even pretend" to be nice.  

As for me, I would be fine with the lawyer being rude to me, but working hard and getting my benefits.  

I have experience having been "rude to", with decades of experience with the VA.  He does not need to be nice..he just needs to win.

      I am trying to find competent contact for legal advice on an FTCA claim. Vet went to VA for help and they failed to diagnose lukemia. Vet went to non VA Dr and was properly diagnosed many months later. Treating non VA Dr stated in medical file that if it had been detected earlier, the vet would have lived much longer. He passed in June 2017.  VA failure to diagnose and treat issue.
      Need consult w/atty to see if she has a case, if so what course of action to take. Been helping her with a claim for DIC but the VA denied SC  and generally "really screwed up" the decision. The non VA medical records (300 pages) and the nexus letter from the specialist (oncologist that treated him till he passed) were completely ignored. Both were faxed and mailed w/return rect!!
      Spoke to widow this AM, she is ready to take the fight to them. Anyone w/experience  with FTCA and knows a competent atty please refer us.
      Thanks in advance for helping!!!

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
