The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers a wide range of services, benefits, and programs to former servicemen and women who became ill or were injured while serving their country.
Unfortunately, filing a claim for these benefits can be difficult, especially for those who are dealing with serious disabilities, so if you believe that you or a loved one qualifies for disability benefits, it is important to speak with an experienced veterans disability attorney who can help you file or appeal a wrongfully denied claim.¬†
Disability compensation, which takes the form of monthly tax-free payments to qualifying veterans, is one of the most important benefits offered by the VA. In order to qualify for these payments, veterans must be able to prove that they:
In addition to fulfilling these requirements, claimants must also prove that they:
A number of illnesses and injuries qualify as disabilities under the VA‚Äôs standard, but some are so common that they are presumed to be disabilities. Presumed disabilities include:
Some of the most common conditions that fall under these categories include:
If you suffer from one or more of these illnesses and served in the military, you could be eligible for disability benefits. Please contact our legal team today to learn more.¬†
The VA also offers housing assistance to certain veterans, namely those who are suffering from specific service-connected or aging-related disabilities. Special Housing Adaptation grants, for instance, can be used to construct an adapted home, or to widen doorways, install ramps, and make other modifications. Even those whose disabilities are not service-connected could be eligible for assistance if they qualify for the Home Improvements and Structural Alterations grant, which when approved, helps fund structural changes and medically necessary improvements to a veteran‚Äôs primary residence.¬†
If you live in Indiana and previously served in the U.S. military, you could be eligible for important disability benefits. To learn more about these benefits and how to apply for them, or how to appeal a claim that has already been denied, please contact the dedicated Indianapolis veterans disability lawyers at The Comerford Law Office, LLC today.¬†
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.
