If you’re like most Veterans, when you hear the term “medical evidence,” you probably think of doctors’ notes and treatment records. While these are certainly important pieces of evidence in any VA claim, they are not the only types of medical evidence that can be used to support your case. In fact, almost anything that pertains to your health – both physical and mental – can be considered medical evidence.
The bottom line is this: the more medical evidence you have to support your VA claim, the better your chances of winning benefits.
So how do you go about getting medical evidence? The best place to start is with your own records. If you’ve been treated for a service-connected condition, make sure to request copies of your medical records from any and all providers you’ve seen, including VA doctors. These records will not only provide important details about your condition and treatment, but they will also help to establish a link between your service and your current condition.
In addition to your own records, there are other sources of medical evidence that can be extremely helpful in VA claims. Family members and friends can often provide valuable testimony about the effects of your condition on your daily life. Employers can also be a great source of information, especially if you’re seeking benefits for a service-connected disability that has caused you to miss work or lose earnings.
If you’re having trouble getting the medical evidence you need to support your claim, don’t hesitate to reach out to our medical doctors to help!
