  • 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

Medical Studies/Treatise As Evidence revisited


Well after reading hundreds of BVA and Veterans CAVC court decisions plus Federal Appeals Circuit decisions over the past many years since at least 1999 it is clearly evident to me and many others as stated in those public decisions granting veterans their disability benefits appeals that the BVA and courts consider reputable medical studies, research, treatise as reliable probative evidence in granting veterans their appeals and often without a doctor's opinion on the matter of the particular study or treatise.  I will cite just a few of these decisions below after I say this. 

There are jealous hearted dip sticks on another veterans benefits forum (VD*) that are constantly insanely railing against the veterans use of these studies in their claims and appeals as evidence to support their claim with or without a doctors opinion supporting the treatise or study.  For some unexplainable reason these dip sticks heads are exploding over this issue when in fact it is none of their damn business if the veterans enters this information along with other information and evidence with their claims and appeals. 

I suspect that these mostly former military lifers, VA raters, VSO lifers are jealous that many vets are winning their appeals at BVA on same evidence that was denied at the VARO level and are also bypassing the lifer VSO system that has failed me and other vets in the past many years.  I became a successful DIY on my claims and appeals since 1998.  And no dip sticks the veterans name does not have to be mentioned in these medical studies/treatise. 

The dipstick who runs the other forum braggs about banning Hadit Veterans members from his forum and his profile is that of a loser/joker and he is a self confessed weed head. That should tell you something about their forum right there and they sure don't like competition from other forums or they wouldn't be exploding their heads over this issue. One of their moderators who calls himself Mick referred to these reputable medical studies as garbage.  Another responder known as Broken Record called these studies crap.   I suggest they take two aspirin and call me Dr. Dustoff in the morning.

They also rail against veterans using paid for outside doctors opinions to support the vets claims and appeals when in fact Broken Record the VA adjudicators routinely use outside paid for doctors opinions who have never examined the vet or interviewed him/her to render an opinion on the vets disability claim.  What is good for the goose is good for the gander for you  dip sticks.  The lifers also gripe and complain about non lifer vets with VA disabilities are now allowed to shop at onbase military PX and Commissary and to use the base recreational facilities. Here are just two of several Federal Appeals and CAVC court decisions written in plain english agreeing with what I said above.

Federal Appeals Circuit court in Hensley v. West, stated:  "A veteran with a competent medical diagnosis of a current disorder may invoke an accepted medical treatise in order to establish the required nexus; in an appropriate case it should not be necessary to obtain the services of medical personnel to show how the treatise applies to his case."  Hensley, 212 F.3d at 1265 (citing Wallin, supra).  

End of story and my advice to the jokers on the other forum is to get over it and get a  life.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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.
