Your government asked you to serve your country, and you answered the call. You were injured in the line of duty, and now those injuries are making it more difficult for you to sustain gainful employment. Now, you are looking into whether an Illinois veterans’ disability appeals attorney can make a difference in your case.
Does this sound familiar? If it does, then you have come to the right place. The Comerford Law Office represents disabled veterans who are either applying for or have applied for (and been denied) VA disability benefits. James R. Comerford is an accredited VA disability attorney who has helped hundreds of veterans, just like yourself, apply for and receive the benefits they are entitled to. Below, we will discuss some of the reasons why applications are denied.
The VA has a fund set aside for injured veterans who are no longer able to work. But they are protective of that fund because there are only so many resources to go around. To protect the fund from fraudulent claims, they sometimes deny legitimate claims. You can, however, appeal the decision.
Common reasons for denying a VA disability benefits claim include:

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.
