Veterans Benefits Section 1151 is available to those who (1) are a veteran and (2) have a disabling condition that is the result of or has been aggravated due to VA sponsored medical treatment or training. Under Section 1151 the Veterans Administration offers disability benefits for death or disability “as if service-connected.” In other words, Veterans Benefits Section 1151 claims are for disabilities that are not considered service-connected.

About Veterans Benefits Section 1151
Veterans Benefits Section 1151 claims must be the result of VA hospitalization, medical or surgical treatment, examination, or training. Veterans Benefits Section 1151 claims require that you have an additional disability or an aggravation of an existing injury or disease. Section 1151 for VA Disability Benefits also requires that the disability is a result or direct VA fault (carelessness, negligence, lack of proper skill, or error in judgment), or not a reasonably expected result or complication of the VA care or treatment, or the direct result or participation in a VA Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment or compensated work therapy program.
If your injury occurred at a VA medical facility, you may also have a VA medical malpractice lawsuit.
