Court Finds That VA Failed To Properly Assist Veteran With His Claim

CCK successfully appealed a Board of Veterans’ Appeals decision that denied a Veteran entitlement to a compensable rating for residuals of a right fibula fracture. CCK argued that the Board erred in finding that VA satisfied its duty to assist the Veteran because an October 2013 VA examination was inadequate for rating purposes. The Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims agreed and remanded the Veteran’s claim for the VA to provide a new medical examination.
