Williams appealed a VA Regional Office decision to the Board of Veterans Appeal (BVA) because the Regional Office refused to recognize serious conditons related to the veteran's back. The condition, Williams argued, would combine with other service related disabilities to render the veteran unemployable. The BVA reviewed the appeal, agreed with Williams, and sent the case back to the Regional Office for evaluation of the veteran's additional lower back disability. On appeal, Williams provided expert evidence to show that the veteran was entitled to more monthly compensation based on having a higher combined disability rating. The VA granted him service connection for radiculopathy and finally agreed that the combination of the veterans lower back disability and other conditions caused him to be unable to maintain meaningful employment. As a result, the veteran was granted individual unemployability (TDIU). The award of 100% in compensation pay results in a substantial increase in monthly VA disability compensation for the veteran and his family.
