Medical Evidence is Key

When it comes to a VA disability claim, medical evidence reigns supreme. From the rules, laws and regulations, every aspect of a VA disability claim is immersed in the need for medical evidence. The medical evidence is offered in the context of the legal frame work. For this reason, many veterans, service organizations and attorneys misunderstand the true import of the VA law and the cross roads with the medical evidence. The legal requirements for obtaining VA disability pay is built on the foundation of obtaining effective medical evidence. For example, the issue of service connection requires a medical opinion that meets the legal requirements for establishing this required prong. A doctor must opine that a current disability is more likely than not caused by an injury or event that occurred in service. This is why it is important to discuss the legal framework of medical evidence and obtaining the best evidence possible for securing a positive outcome.
