Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

What is the reason for the denial? The NEW president said he was going to get these cases moving, since they have been stalled in the VA, but it all depends on the reason you are being denied the benefits?

What is the reason they are giving, did they refer you to the ombudsman at the VA to file for an administrative hearing before the administrative judge regarding the denial?

This was a face to face conversation with va it is impossible to be less than the record speak for it,s self thedisabity condition of the jaw should have stated fractured jaw this is a play down of the actual injury in order to make it look less severe. An example of the va ,s deception and misrepresentation back strain5% condition of the jaw 5% = 10% since you don't use a 5% rating rating start at 10% so these rating should have been 10% the va ,s misrepresentation of me and a failure to follow up on the wording is a fact which is undisputable I was misled and board misled you my represent I've I spent 30to40days in a mental ward this was to keep me from injuring myself or some one else I was in excruciating pain but did not understand why I was put on the 6 floor the psychiatric ward for 30to40days the pain was so severe I wish I was dead to stop it the pain the medicine I was given was not easing pain at all like it,s was suppose to the law says you have the authority to approve the non-service-conneted disability this have been 30years of the va lying to me and using deception or deceptive practices which was wrong unjust and unfair practices to keep from paying compensation on the. Two injuries which the law says would be retroactive from1984 to 2016 this is also a violation of the law under the penalty of perjury. The ruling should be my favor for approval the va lied. Cover up. Neither of these services connected disabilities are less than 10% they are more than 10% disabling. Back strain 10% condition of the jaw clear and convincing evidence proof of the error that was made in applying the law the evidence does not establish services connected for the following injuries. Right ankle broken pterygium right eye misrepensation and disagreement case against the va these disabilities are well within the range of 10% or more they are compensable and payable under the services connected by laws respectfully jerry l mckinney
