The VA Presumptive List

THIS INFORMATION SHOULD NOT BE CONSTRUED AS LEGAL ADVICE. YOU SHOULD STRONGLY CONSIDER THE BENEFITS OF CONSULTING WITH A TRAINED LEGAL PROFESSIONAL

The VA presumptive list, not surprisingly, presumes that any conditions on that list were caused by military service even though there may be no medical reasoning that definitively proves the connection.

The VA Presumptive List basically states that if veterans who served in X location/circumstances during certain years developed Y or Z conditions, then those conditions will be automatically considered service-connected. No proof is needed beyond documents showing that the vet was indeed in that location/circumstance at that time.

For example Gulf War Syndrome symptoms is included in the VA Presumptive List and can include:

Fatigue
Skin symptoms
Headaches
Muscle pain
Joint pain
Neurological symptoms
Mental symptoms
Respiratory symptoms
Trouble sleeping
Cardiovascular symptoms
Abnormal weight loss
Menstrual disorders
Gastrointestinal symptoms
