CCK Wins Case For Army Veteran
CCK has won a remand at the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, through the DAV-CCK Pro Bono Veterans Court Program, on behalf of an Army veteran who served in the 1950s. The Board had denied the veteran service connection for multiple sclerosis, but on appeal, his attorneys persuaded the Court that the Board had relied upon an inadequate medical examination and provided inadequate reasons and bases for its decision. The Court found it “especially troubling” that both the Board and VA examiner failed to address the statements from the veteran and his wife about his symptoms. On remand, VA must obtain an examination that considers all the evidence of record.
