I filed my claim 1/2009 on 11 issues, Denied all on 9/2010. I am presently diagnosised with ptsd, dissociative identity behavior disorder, severe depression, nexus by the dorn va hospital psychiatrist. Additionally I have stage three kidney dysfunction, proteinia, hematuria, cervical radiopathy, and filed for individual unemployability. I am on my last leg, the VA didnt even include its own agencies medical files, and additionally files given to the VA over these past seven years have disappeared. I need legal representation to file suit against the va for intentionally not including evidence for the purpose of denial of a claim. Additionally my psychiatrist indicates that my mental health issues are the results of traumatic brain injury from being thrown through a military owned car windshield in 1986.

I am sorry to hear about all that. It is definitely your right to appeal your denial. You will first want to file a notice of disagreement with your regional office as soon as possible. This will establish a record of your having disagreed with their decision. It is simply a letter saying that you received their decision and disagree with it. If you have any questions about this or the steps following the submission of the NOD, please call our office toll-free at 877-838-2889. We have attorneys on hand to help you find the forms and other resources you need.
