Vets are, at times, denied, their disability because of the failure to provide a medical link between their current disability and an incident that arose during service. Some times, obtaining this evidence can be very difficult. I have found that one tool that is often overlooked is the use of the internet in assisting veterans with their disability claims.
TBI—Traumatic Brain Injury is gaining more ground in terms of its detection and treatment. It used to be when someone spoke of a brain injury, images of the most serious situations arose. However, as we progress in our understanding of science, it is clear that TBI can arise in situations where it doesn’t even seem to be evident. TBI doesn’t always mean the serious brain injuries that leave one a vegetative state. TBI occurs when there are concussions or any other force applied to the brain. TBI can arise from car accidents, hard jolts or even sporting activities. That is why it is very important to understand TBI and make sure that you adequately raise and prove your TBI in your veterans disability case.

I took a brief break from writing this blog. This break was due to me attending the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims conference in Washington D.C.

By understanding the process, one can pinpoint where the strengths of your case are best brought to light.

I am often approached by Vets who are trying to ascertain how far back their claims for disability should go. For many vets, they have fought for years and years with the VA in order to make any progress on their disability claim. However, when they receive the disability they are shocked and perplexed by the effective date of their claims. While many vets believe that their claims should go back for years and years they are often met with the harsh reality that they only have a claim dating back just a few months. Why is that? It boils down to the effective date of their VA disability claim.
