Court of Action for disability upgrade and claim


Ebenezer

Question

Hello, 

I really appreciate any help I can get. In 2005 I was rated 30% disability (10% Left Foot achilles tendonitis, 10% Right Foot achilles tendonitis, and 10% for my left knee RPPS). 

Question 1: I heard achilles tendonities and claimed that back in 2005. I was given free VA Health Care and my doctor ordered an Xray, he said that I had Heel Spurs (2005 to 2006) and that is pushing on my Achilless causing the pain.   I just recently found out I can get a rating heel spurs, is that too late (12-13 years) to put in a rating for heel spurs that was discovered 2005-2006?  

Question 2: Also, I am older now, both legs are just completely messed up. I can not walk normally, I am in constant pain, when I took my family to Disney World, I had to sit down because my feel were just completely swollen, painful tendons, and walking with a severe limp. When I sit down and rest, I stand up and tendons are so tight, I have to stand there for ten minutes and literally try to stretch it out. I literally will not be able to walk.  Is it okay to apply for at least a 10% increase for the achilles tendonities for each foot  or is it too late? 

Question 3: Can I file for bone spurs, and achilles tendonities increase all at the same time or do it one by one? 

 

I can thank you in advance for any help you may give.

It is never to late.  So depending on if you had them documented in service. 

If not sounds like they can be rated as secondary to your other conditions. I would get your claim going even if you don’t have everything connected yet but you will need a doctors opinion linking the conditions and how your service connected issues affect your secondary conditions.

Agree.  Its not to late.  Apply for all conditions, and let the VA rating specialists do their job and rate you.  

Dont ask for "10 percent" for each leg.  Ask for the maximum allowable by law.

I agree with shrekthetank1 and bronco

 you should check the rating criteria for these conditions  and in your claim quote these CFR 38 Criteria ratings back to them.  or like broncovet mention ''Ask for the maximum allowable by law.''  

but if you know the rating critera for each of your conditions...quote them back to them.  one by one   they will know there dealing with a Veteran that is on top of his claim!!!! or should anywayz...😉
