Why Comerford Law Office?

James R. Comerford is a veteran’s affairs attorney who is accredited and authorized to represent veterans who are trying to get disability benefits. As a member of the National Organization of Veteran’s Advocates (NOVA), his law firm has helped thousands of Illinois veterans receive disability benefits. No matter where you are in the application process, we can help ensure that your case file provides the VA with all the information it needs to render a positive decision on your case.

Why Does the VA Reject Disability Applications?

The VA makes a habit out of uniformly denying applications. The reason for this is that they want to protect the solvency of the fund that is established to help veterans. The reason they give for denying your application, generally, is that the application is not complete and does not prove either of the two elements required to receive benefits.

You must be able to show that you were injured in the line of duty and that this injury prevents you from sustaining gainful employment for the foreseeable future. Our law office can ensure that your case file has all the necessary evidence for approval.

In some cases, it does not take a medical expert to determine that someone is disabled, acquired that disability in the line of duty, and it impairs their ability to work. In other cases, it can be much more difficult to prove. For instance, veterans who suffer from PTSD, have psychiatric problems, traumatic brain injury, or other disabilities that are not easy to see can have a more difficult journey toward acquiring their benefits. 

What Should I do if My VA Disability Application is Rejected?

If your VA disability application is rejected, you should call Comerford Law Office today. We will go over your case file, get the necessary evidence from your doctors, and have vocational counselors provide testimony concerning your limited work capacity. In other words, we will help you produce an ironclad case file that proves your disability is real and occurred as a result of your service.
