The United States Government asks young men and young women to enlist in the armed forces to defend our country against foreign threats and fight on foreign soil. When we do so, we guarantee that if they are injured in the line of duty, and this injury prevents them from working.
We will support them financially for their sacrifice. Yet many former soldiers find the process of applying difficult and confusing. When they receive denial letters, it is not necessarily clear why their application was denied nor what they would need to prove that they are entitled to those benefits. A Lake County, IL VA Disability Lawyer can help.
The Comerford Law Office is proud to represent Americaâ€™s veterans. We help disabled veterans build their case files, get the evidence they need, and then collect their benefits so that they can live securely without worrying about how they will work. Below, we will discuss this process in more detail.
Those who have lost limbs or are now paralyzed do not have to go out of their way to prove that their disability exists. If the injury occurred in the line of duty, then two of the three elements they need to prove are gift-wrapped for them. It is easy, then, to show that this disability prevents or impairs gainful employment. But other disabilities are much more difficult to prove. These include:
If you suffer from any of the above or dozens of other conditions that may require subjective testimony to prove, the attorneys at The Comerford Law Office can help you prepare your case file. Call 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.
