We ask young men and women from all over the country to join the service and fight for us on foreign soil. When we do so, we guarantee that certain benefits will be available to them and their families if they suffered permanent injuries in the line of duty.
But applying for these benefits is complex and most often, confusing. Veterans who attempt to apply themselves are met with confusing denials of their claims and left scratching their heads as to what evidence they need to provide to ensure that their benefits are granted. A Cook County Veterans benefits attorney can help.
James Comerford is a board-certified and accredited VA disability attorney. The Comerford Law Office fights for veterans every day and ensures that they get the benefits they were promised when they joined the military.
Those who have had a limb amputated or suffered a near-total disability generally do not have to worry about how to prove their case and get their benefits. A question will still remain as to what kind of work they can do and whether or not their injury prevents them from working at all, but you obviously do not have to prove that the injury exists because it is obvious. Other disabilities are not like that. These cases become much harder to prove. Examples include:
The above list is not exhaustive. Veterans are wrongfully denied benefits every day. If you have been denied or need help with the application process, call the Comerford Law Office today to schedule a free consultation.Â
I contacted Jim after my first denial for SS Disability. He was referred to me by a good friend who had retained him for her Disability odyssey as well. My Disability case was somewhat difficult because I didn’t have a nice, large cache of medical documentation to back up my claim. Despite this and other complications Jim helped me get through my hearing and I received a fully favorable decision from the Judge and now I am just waiting to start receiving my benefits,
James is an absolutely great lawyer. He fully understands his area of expertise, he’s quick to answer any questions with clear, concise directions on how to proceed. His insight into understanding how to navigate with many case laws and government agencies helped me as his client better understand the case law and it’s ways. James is quick to answer emails and phone calls, and made me feel very comfortable. I highly, highly recommended James for his case law specialties. A professional and true gentleman, even when I would ramble on with worry, James was very understanding and able to put my concerns at ease.

Jim is a good lawyer that helped us through a difficult purchase of our home(he also was the lawyer for the sale of our previous home).
We had quite a few issues with the details of the purchase with both the bank and the seller that James made sure were resolved as quickly as possible. When the selling lawyer would not respond to phone calls/emails Jim physically went to the lawyer’s office and made sure that the final details were pushed through.
I would recommend Jim as an attorney as he is very knowledgeable and thorough on the work that he does.
