Veterans Disability Based on Agent Orange Exposure- What Counts as Establishing a Claim?
 
02:57
http://www.disabilitydenials.com/blog/what-communications-count-as-disability-claims-for-agent-orange-related-diseases/ In this video Marc Whitehead, an Accredited Veterans Disability Attorney, explains what counts in regards to Agent Orange Exposure when establishing a Veterans Disability claim. Any disability claims for Agent Orange related disease that were denied or filled after September 24, 1985 and before the list of disease in VA table 8.1 was published, could be considered a category 1 claim. What this means is that Agent Orange claims made during this period can be reexamined. In these cases the rules as to what is defined as a recognized disability compensation claim or very liberal. Some examples of communications that should be sufficient to allow a veteran to qualify for the special agent orange effective date rules for disability compensation are: 1- The veteran submitted an official document to the VA, stating that they should grant them service connected disability benefits for a specific disease that's listed in table 8.1. Any VA attorney should know that these documents do not have to refer specifically to the Vietnam or Agent Orange. 2- The veteran made disability claims for a disease that was never specifically identified. But while the claim was pending medical records that diagnosed the veteran with a table 8.1 disease were filed with the VA. 3- The veteran filed a compensation claim for a disability that was not listed in table 8.1, but while the claim was pending the veteran was officially diagnosed with a table 8.1 disease that was important to their VA claims file. This rule is often violated by the VA when setting effective dates. In order to prove their compliance with this rule the VA added more details to is training guide. Do your medical records count as a disability claim? A VA disability Attorney will note that a veterans medical records do not count as a claim by themselves. However, if medical records are present at the time a veteran files a separate disability claim the condition shown in the medical records will be considered part of that claim.

Veterans' Legal Series: Agent Orange and Presumptive Service Connected Conditions
 
04:08
In this installment of the Veterans’ Legal Series from the City Bar Justice Center, Veterans Assistance Project Director Kent Eiler discusses presumptive service connection in the context of Agent Orange Disability Claims. Presumptive service-connection is one method that can be used to establish eligibility in VA Benefits claim applications for illnesses and disabilities due to Agent Orange. Nexus is one of the three required legal elements for a successful VA Benefits claim application. This video is part of an ongoing series intended to help veterans and veteran advocates understand VA Benefits and the application process. More Veterans’ Legal Series episodes are available on YouTube: http://goo.gl/kkOHY8 In limited situations, such as exposure to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War, the VA has found certain medical conditions to be presumptively connected to service.

Did the VA Get the Correct Effective Date in Your Agent Orange Claim?
 
03:34
If you are a Vietnam-Era veteran and have been awarded VA disability benefits for medical problems associated with Agent Orange, did the VA properly compute the effective date for your conditions? We raise this question because it is critically important. If the VA got the date wrong then you may have been seriously short-changed on your past-due benefits. The effective date rules for Agent Orange-related conditions are different than for other disabilities. Normally in VA disability cases when new, more liberal rules are adopted which make it easier for a vet to get benefits, the effective date cannot be earlier than the effective date of the new regulation. Usually the effective date is the date that the rule is published. For example, say a vet files a disability claim 1998 and is denied benefits. Then on July 1, 2004 the VA adopts a new regulation. Let’s say the vet had reopened the denied claim in March 2004 and this time, because of the new, more liberal regulations, the claim is approved. Even though our vet reopened his claim in March the effective date for benefits cannot be earlier than the effective date of the new, more liberal rules. So, the effective benefits date is July 1, 2004. But as I said the rules for Agent Orange-related cases are different. This is an outcome of the Nehmer case, a 1986 class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of Vietnam veterans exposed to the herbicide dioxin. In Nehmer the Court held that, when the VA issues a liberalizing rule that provides presumptive service-connection for a new condition, the VA is required to re-adjudicate cases in which VA previously denied veteran or survivor’s claims for benefits related to that new presumption. Nehmer is once again a hot topic because the VA has recently liberalized its rules which establish that exposure to Agent Orange is the cause of Ischemic Heart Disease among Vietnam vets and is a presumptive condition. Here’s how to determine the proper Nehmer effective date for your Agent Orange claim. If you filed a claim for Ischemic Heart Disease within one year of your discharge from the military, the effective date will be the day following your discharge. If you filed a claim for an Ischemic Heart Disease prior to the effective date of the new rules, and the VA denied that claim, the effective date is the later of the date the disability arose, or, the date the VA received your prior claim. If you did not file a claim for an Ischemic Heart Disease prior to the effective date of the new liberalizing rule, the VA’s general rules on effective dates apply. Determining the proper effective date for Ischemic Heart Disease or any Agent Orange presumptive condition can get very confusing. It is always best to consult with an accredited veterans’ benefits attorney when trying to determine if and how Nehmer applies to your case. We are here to help you. Call us for a free appointment.

Veteran says VA won't recognize brain tumor could be linked to Agent Orange
 
00:56
A veteran who helped service members in our area for decades is facing a new battle. Tom Cray founded the Veterans Outreach Center and led the organization for years. He's battling a cancerous brain tumor, but can't get VA compensation. Cray served two tours of duty in Vietnam where he came in contact with Agent Orange. Veterans have argued the herbicide is linked to brain cancer. But the VA won't recognize his cancer is related to Agent Orange. "We do need to draw attention to these issues," said Lindsay Cray, Tom Cray's daughter. "We do need to get the VA to start acknowledging them. They have to take care of those and serve those who served them." Senator Chuck Schumer and Congresswoman Louise Slaughter want the VA to presume the cancer connection to Agent Orange and provide coverage. Schumer also wants the VA to release its information on all Vietnam veterans who battle brain tumors.

Some Veterans Diagnosed With Cancer Won't Get Compensation

There is controversy over a payout for veterans with lung cancer, linked to working with asbestos. 2,500 veterans will be offered a one-off payment of £140,000, instead of a war pension. However, the money will only go to those diagnosed since 16 December 2015. Those diagnosed before that date will not be eligible. In a statement, Veterans Minister Mark Lancaster said: “The policy of no retrospection has been maintained by successive Governments. Whether it should be applied to this group is a complex issue that has been the subject of much discussion within the Government. However, I have directed my Department to continue to review the options to support these claimants in a similar manner." Welfare Correspondent Victoria Smith met veteran Fred Minall who was diagnosed in 2014 with mesothelioma, a fatal cancer associated with exposure to asbestos.

What Agent Orange Does To The Body
 
01:51
More than 2,000 U.S. airmen will be compensated for exposure to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. What has the herbicide done to their bodies? Follow Cliff Judy: http://www.twitter.com/cliffjudy See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: More than 2,000 U.S. airmen who suffered from Agent Orange exposure will receive a total of about $47.5 million in benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. A January report on the herbicide is getting much of the credit for the decision announced Thursday. Vets have to prove they worked on a C-123 aircraft contaminated with the substance during the Vietnam War and that they're showing symptoms. In Vietnam, America dropped more than 19 million gallons of herbicides, with Agent Orange being the favorite. The hope was that the chemicals would strip Vietnam of its dense trees and give U.S. soldiers the upper hand. The reason Agent Orange is so dangerous is because of the chemical dioxin. Once in the body, it can hit just about everything — including the nervous, respiratory and circulatory systems. "Dioxin remains toxic for decades," a spokeswoman for Make Agent Orange History said. It's also not water-soluble, meaning it doesn't degrade easily, and genetic effects can be passed down through generations after one person's exposed. For some vets, the first symptoms began with blurred vision, memory loss and lack of concentration. From there, the symptoms can get a lot worse. Agent Orange has been linked to prostate cancer, lung cancers, Parkinson's disease and birth defects. After coming back from the war, soldiers and their children born after the war began to show symptoms. (Video via Java Films / "The Children of Agent Orange") Vets began protesting as effects showed, but the VA said there was a lack of evidence to support their claims. (Video via The New York Times) "We don't mean to say there isn't an Agent Orange effect, but at this point in time we don't seem to see anything that confirms that there is something there specifically," Dr. Alvin Young from the VA Agent Orange Task Force said in media clips compiled by The New York Times. The VA eventually backtracked, and in 1991, the Agent Orange Act was passed — allowing vets to receive benefits. On Thursday, the secretary of the VA said in a statement, "Opening up eligibility for this deserving group of Air Force veterans and reservists is the right thing to do."

Veterans Benefits for Agent Orange Exposure
 
01:30
The VA assumes that certain diseases, cancers, and other health problems are likely caused by exposure to Agent Orange. These are considered presumptive diseases, meaning that if one of these conditions is diagnosed in a veteran who was exposed to Agent Orange, the veteran can qualify for disability benefits without the burden of proving the condition was caused by military service.

Can I Get Social Security Disability Benefits Because I Have Cancer?
 
01:41
http://www.BergerandGreen.com. 1-800-999-2626. Can I get Social Security Disability benefits because I've been diagnosed with cancer? Yes you can. But let's remember the Social Security definition of disability is the inability to work because of your condition for at least a 12 month period of time. Modern medicine has been really good and making great strides in treating cancer and many times even though you have cancer you can undergo surgery or chemotherapy or radiation or other kinds of cancer treatment and your cancer can be controlled in less than one year and the symptoms of your treatment do not linger for more than a year. If that's the case then you really don't have a condition that meets the definition of disability for Social Security benefits. On the other hand, there are people whose condition cannot be controlled by treatment or who have severe and lingering side effects from the treatment that are debilitating. if this is the case for you and it looks like you're not going to be able to work for at least one year, then you have a good claim for Social Security Disability benefits.

Are Vets Who Served In Thailand Eligible for Agent Orange Benefits?
 
02:35
Vietnam veterans have had a long and difficult fight to get the government to compensate them for the serious health problems created by exposure to Agent Orange. This toxic herbicide was widely used in that war as a defoliant. The use of Agent Orange was not only confined to Vietnam, however. It was also used as a defoliant in Thailand. However, for years the government denied that herbicides were used in Thailand and it also denied the benefits claims of vets who served in that country. All this changed in 2010 when the VA established what they called a “perimeter policy” which allows Vietnam Era veterans presumptive disability for Agent Orange exposure in Thailand if they can show that their duties placed them “on or near” the perimeter of their base. If you served in Thailand between January 1962 and May 1975 and you were a security policeman, patrol dog handler, part of a security police squadron, or otherwise served near an air base perimeter and now are suffering medical problems you may be eligible for VA disability benefits. To get these benefits you must file an application with the VA. When you apply, you’ll have to prove that you were stationed at one or more of certain specific military bases in Thailand. And you will need to provide supporting documents that show you had regular perimeter security duty—such as daily work duty logs, performance evaluation reports, or other records showing you worked as a dog handler or a member of a security squadron or military police unit. Exposure to Agent Orange has been linked to a broad range of illnesses, including diabetes, various cancers, Parkinson’s Disease, peripheral neuropathy, and a type of heart disease. Cases for disability due to Agent Orange exposure can be complicated, but you don’t have to do this on your own. If you believe you qualify for VA compensation for Agent Orange related disabilities, we encourage you to contact us at Cuddigan Law to help you fight for the benefits you have rightly earned.

Veterans Benefits Grim Reaper protestor
 
00:11
Pennsylvania Ave , Wilmington Delaware 89 year old Vet protests lack of Vet benefits. Claims captured enemies get better medical attention. Here is the letter he wrote to explain his situation : TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: September 27, 2010 Several years ago, a Dr. Hooker informed me after a four minute conversation that I had Alzheimer's disease and put me on a pill schedule for several years. Then two doctors called me in and told me that I never did have the disease. No apology!. Sometime later, when I was picketing in front of the hospital on Kirkwood highway, Doctor Hooker would come out of the hospital with a dog and walk by me and down to the creek running along side of the hospital grounds. One day, when she was returning from the creek, I asked her if there was anyway we could get together? The dog did not look at me and the doctor just gave me a blank stare and kept on going. After that, I have never tried to make any attemp to come to peace with the VA. At my age of 88 years, I don't think they care about what happens. Several years ago, a doctor in the oncology department told me that I had prostate cancer. He wanted to put me on radiation but I refused.for a couple of reasons. He then put Me on a Zoladex implants which I take every three months.(Still do.) Couple years later, another doctor was examining me and he started to chuckle. I asked him why? He stated "You do not have prostate cancer." Informed the hospital and my next visit with the doctor was canceled, but the Zoladex continued, but since there had not been any side effects over the years, I did not object as I wanted to be on safe side. Now, after a shot, I get a big black and blue mark on my stomach and it lasts for many weeks. I informed the nurse but she made no comments. I had been going to the audiology department for severe hearing loss and they gave me a cheap hearing aid that probably costs about $30.00 and they make a very raucous sound. I do not have any now as I returned the aids asking for better ones. On the suggestion of a VA doctor, I had gone to the Nemours clinic for some dental work. They automatically give you an eye test and hearing test. The hearing test shows that I have very severe hearing problem. The VA would not accept the test record as they stated that they did not do it. In other words, if I went to the best five audiologists in the world and they all state that I have severe hearing damage, then the vA still would only accept their own inept hearing test. They also told me that they can make a test to come out anyway they want it to. I broke my ankle several years ago and the VA would not let the ambulance driver bring me to the VA. I had to go to Christiana Care and after a six week stay, my bill was well over $25,000.00. The VA would not accept me for any follow-up and I still have to use a cane and a walker. Used a wheelchair right after the operation. The doctor told me it will never heal. My good primary doctor gives me pain medicine that helps to alleviate some of the pain. The broken ankle also caused a continuing case of edema. The optical department gives me eye tests in a lighted room. They ask me to read letters and number on a chart on the wall. At times, I tell them that I cannot see any numbers or letters butythey then tell me to guess but I refuse as how can you guess when you cannot see? At the last test, I got so disgusted, I got up and walked out. Do to my age of 88 years and that I picket against them a lot, they do not have any intention of giving me excellent medical care. I do have an excellent primary doctor but if she wants to keep her job, she has to do what the officials on the 7th floor of the hospital wants. Her name is Ashlesha A. Chaughule, Internal Medicine. Couple years ago, a veteran beat up his primary doctor and two employees because he was not getting proper care. A veteran shot himself at a VA facility. Do not know the reason as they are keeping quiet. The politicians will not help me in anyway and newspapers will not run any story about me even tho for picketing, I have been arrested, handcuffed and taken to jail several times and to court. Each time, I go to court, the judge states, "Case dismissed, go home." They still keped after me so, I went to the City of Wilmington law offices, and a Rosamarie Tasone Di Nardi heard my story and called the chief of police and informed him that I should never have been arrested and to never arrest me again.The Va had me arrested first by the Delaware State Police in front of the VA Hospital but they must have gotten the word as now the police wave at me and run their sirens for a second when they pass me by on the street corners. (Not the state police.) Firemen and ambulance drivers, etc. also give me the horn or give me the hi-fi sign. The public is also good to me. James D. Napier
