According to a report from the United States Census Bureau, nearly 20 percent of military veterans (3.7 million in total) have a disability or medical condition that is directly related to their military service. These veterans, who gave up so much to protect our rights and freedoms, deserve our protection.
They have earned their disability benefits. Yet, unfortunately, working with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can be a bureaucratic nightmare for disabled veterans. Many VA benefits claims are wrongly denied. At The Comerford Law Office, LLC, our dedicated Great Lakes veterans benefits lawyer fights aggressively to protect the legal rights and financial interests of Illinois veterans and their families.
Under United States federal law, lawyers can only handle VA benefits claim if they possess official accreditation from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Our founding attorney James R. Comerford is fully accredited by the VA. This means that he has official authorization to represent military veterans in VA benefits claims in Great Lakes, Illinois and the surrounding communities. Our law firm has handled many different types of VA disability claims, including:
The VA benefits claims process can be frustratingly slow for many veterans. Indeed, according to information provided by the National Organization of Veterans’ Advocates (NOVA), it can take up to 180 days to get an initial decision from the VA. Additionally, if you need to file an appeal to get your benefits, the process can take as long as two years to be completed.
Our Great Lakes VA benefits legal team wants to make sure that you get your full benefits as quickly as is possible under the current system. To do this, it is crucial that you submit a strong initial claim, with all relevant supporting documentation included. Ideally, your claim will be approved without any undue delay.
