While most veterans are eligible for VA benefits, former servicemen who are injured in the line of duty also often qualify for additional services and disability benefits. Applying can be difficult, so if you believe that you may be eligible, speak with an experienced Cook County veterans disability benefits attorneyÂ who can ensure that your claim is filed properly.
Disabled veterans who meet certain requirements could be eligible for long-term care, which includes access to:
These services are available in a number of different settings, including:
To access these services, veterans must prove that they are signed up for VA healthcare and require a specific service to help with personal care and ongoing treatment.
One of the most important benefits that the VA offers to disabled veterans is disability compensation, which takes the form of a monthly payment. However, this benefit is only available to veterans who served on active duty, inactive duty training, or active duty for training and have received a disability rating for a medical condition. In addition to these requirements, veterans seeking disability benefits also need to provide evidence:
This process tends to be much simpler for those who are suffering from certain medical conditions, which are automatically presumed to be disabling by the VA. These conditions include the following:
Chronic back pain, breathing problems, severe hearing loss, certain cancers, and PTSD are only a few of the medical conditions for which veterans can receive coverage.Â
Former servicemen and women whose service-connected disabilities limit their ability to work or prevent them from working at all could be eligible for vocational rehabilitation and employment benefits. These benefits, which take the form of a variety of programs and services, help veterans explore employment options, obtain training, receive academic counseling, and understand their career options based on their interests and capabilities.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.
