  • $580,000
    Denied Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Claim

    Veteran received over $580,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). After previously obtaining a finding that the prior 1980 decision committed clear and unmistakable error in failing to find that the veteran’s PTSD was service connected, the recent award was based on our written arguments to the BVA that the veteran was entitled to 100% effective back in 1980. The BVA agreed that the Department of Veterans Affairs assignment of 10% was in error and assigned 100% as of 1980.

  • $245,000
    Sexual Assault Trauma While in Military

    Veteran received over $245,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). The BVA applied the “benefit of the doubt” rule in finding that the veteran’s military sexual trauma was service connected. We were able to obtain credible lay statements as well as favorable doctor statements that supported the veteran’s case of sexual assault while in the military. The BVA ruling resulted in an award of benefits back to 2011.

  • $205,000
    Illness Due to Toxic Drinking Water

    Veteran received over $205,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). The BVA agreed that the veteran’s bone and prostate cancers were related to his exposure to the toxins in the water at Camp Lejeune. Here, the Department of Veteran’s Affairs (VA) sent the case to a pediatric oncologist, who wrote a negative opinion against the veteran. We were able to get the veteran’s treating oncologist to link his cancer with his exposure to the toxic drinking water at Camp Lejeune and the BVA judge agreed that this opinion deserved more weight than the VA’s negative opinion.

  • $165,000
    Injuries Incurred During Military Service

    Veteran received over $165,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). In this case the BVA agreed with our arguments that the veteran’s stiff person’s syndrome arose during his military service. For years, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) denied this case stating that the veteran had simply not been diagnosed in the military for his disability. However, the BVA agreed that the evidence supported that the disability manifested during his time in the military. The veteran was fortunate to have his treating doctor testify regarding his disability and medical symptoms he exhibited during his time in the military.

  • $140,000
    Board of Veterans Appeals Award

    Veteran received over $140,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). In this case the BVA agreed that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), committed clear and unmistakable error in failing to adjudicate all the veteran’s conditions in 1985. The evidence showed that the veteran suffered from numerous injuries following gunshot wounds, but the original application did not specify all the disabling conditions. After various appeals, the BVA agreed that the VA committed clear error in failing to adjudicate all the claims reasonably raised by the evidence at the time of the initial decision back in 1985. This decision by the BVA resulted in the original incorrect decision being vacated and the veteran being awarded ratings paid all the way back to 1985 for the additional conditions initially ignored by the VA.

  • $55,000
    Spine & Other Injuries While Serving in the Military

    Veteran received over $55,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). The BVA agreed that the veteran’s lumbar spine condition and bilateral lower extremity radiculopathy were both related to his time in the military. Further, the BVA agreed that the veteran should be awarded a higher rating for his migraine headaches and that he also suffered from GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) as secondary to the medications prescribed for his migraines.

  • $40,000
    Asbestos Exposure in the Navy

    Veteran received over $40,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). The BVA agreed that the veteran’s current lung cancer was related to his exposure to asbestos in the Navy. The BVA also agreed to an earlier effective date where the VA mislead the veteran into believing that he had a case pending.

  • $35,000
    Exposure to Agent Orange

    Veteran received over $35,000 in retroactive pay following a favorable finding by the Board of Veteran’s Appeals (BVA). The BVA agreed that the veteran’s Parkinson’s Disease was related to herbicide exposure (including Agent Orange) while stationed in Korea. The BVA agreed with the evidence that we were able to obtain proving that the veteran was stationed along the DMZ in Korea. The BVA’s finding overturned the various denials by the Department of Veterans Affairs that there was no evidence showing service at the DMZ.
