Conditions secondary to or caused by a service connected condition
Military Service-Connected Veteran Claims
Legal Representation in Columbia, SC
A veteran may be entitled to service connection for conditions which were not directly connected to active duty service, but were secondary to or caused by a service connected condition. The effect of the secondary connection is to make the conditions service connected as any directly connected condition would be.
In order to prove that conditions are secondary to or caused by a service connected condition, a veteran must provide sufficient medical evidence. The examining VA doctor or independent doctor must determine that it is as likely as not that the condition(s) in question were caused by or are secondary to an already service connected condition.
