The critical aspect in any Veterans' Disability Compensatation claim is having medical evidence that explains your condition. This means obtaining treatment for your condition on a sustained and consistent basis. It is suggested that you see a doctor or specialist at least one (1) time every three (3) months. The best scenario is receiving treatment from the same doctor(s) over a period of time.
Medical Evaluations can be very helpful in proving that your condition is service-connected. A medical evaluation that is beneficial for your claim is an assessment from your doctor that defines your physical or mental limitations and states that your condition has at least a 50% chance that it was caused by your military service.
