Veterans provide an essential service to our country. Indeed, less than one percent of all Americans have ever served in any branch of the armed forces. Indeed, according to U.S. government data, there are currently fewer than 20 million U.S. veterans. Shockingly, one in every five of these veterans has a disability that can be directly connected to their time in the service.
Veterans are entitled to full and fair benefits for any service-related medical conditions. Yet sadly, many veterans have a hard time obtaining their benefits. Our firm is dedicated to working with veterans to fix this problem. If you are having trouble recovering your full and fair veterans benefits, please contact our experienced Oak Park veterans benefits lawyers today.
Not just any attorney can handle a veterans benefits claim. Indeed, to represent veterans in these type of cases, an attorney must be officially certified and accredited by Department of Veterans Affairs. Our lead attorney, James R. Comerford, has the proper credentials to take on these cases. Our team has experience handling a wide array of different veterans disability claims, including:
We also handle all other types of military service-related disability claims. If you have any questions about your specific claim, we encourage you to give us a call. Our Oak Park veterans benefits lawyers will review your case for free, with no strings attached. From there, we will explain your legal rights and help you explore your options.
Our firm fully understands that each veterans benefits case is unique; we always give all of our clients the individualized attention that their claim requires. Most claims are initiated when a veteran files the official VA application from, seeking disability or retirement benefits. Though, unfortunately, simply filing is not enough in many cases. If your claim was denied, for any reason, our Oak Park attorneys are ready to help. Claims can be denied for many different reasons; sometimes it happens because there is a question about the true severity of the condition, other times because there are questions about its connection to their military service. Regardless, no matter the situation, our team is ready to help.
