cameron514 posted a question in Entitlement - Veterans Compensation Benefits ClaimsMy wife is a Vet that was injured while active in 2001, and is currently 40% Disabled with VA Service Connect ( SC ) for maybe 3 years now for Back Issues. She was just involded in a Vehicle accident that was not her fault. Injuries from the accident "nothing serious just moslty sore" are ; Head, Neck, Chest, Stomach, Hips, Knees, & Back. Can this recent Vehicle accident prevent her from filing a new VA SC claim ( for more of a % ) later down the road since her Per Existing back injury which occured while active is now re-injured due to this accident? I know all the other areas such as Head, Neck, Knees, etc.. that are not involved in VA SC would be claimed through compensation from the Insurer. Any help would be great! Im sure she isnt the only person that has run into this question before. Thanks for any help or guidence.
