The Orland Park Veterans disability attorneys at the Comerford Law Office proudly represent veterans who need to file disability claims with the VA. You served your country; now it is time for your country to repay the favor. In this article, we will discuss some of the cases we take, the impairments veterans face, and how we can help you file a disability claim with the VA.
Comerford Law Office provides legal services to veterans who are filing claims for disability benefits. James R. Comerford is an accredited veteranâ€™s disability attorney and a recognized member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA). He understands the difficulties and frustration that veterans face when trying to file claims on their own. He has helped hundreds of veterans produce ironclad claims files and receive the disability benefits they were promised when they joined the armed forces.Â
Veterans qualify for disability benefits if they sustained a service-related injury and were discharged under non-dishonorable conditions. As a veteran, you will need to prove that your disability is related to your military service and that this disability is a chronic condition. For those who lost limbs in combat, this is not difficult to prove at all. However, there are a number of disabilities that veterans have that are far more difficult to prove.Â
There are a number of reasons why veterans have difficulties filing claims with the VA. Often, it is not exactly clear what kind of information the VA requires. Veterans file a claim and then their claim comes back denied for sometimes abstruse reasons that they do not understand.
As an accredited veteranâ€™s disability benefits attorney, James R. Comerford has represented the interests of several veterans who were presenting complicated cases to the VA for authorization. When the VA denies a claim, you have the right to appeal that decision and provide more evidence that your condition is either service-related or provide the necessary evidence that it is chronic and makes it difficult for you to work.Â
If you have been denied a valid claim by the VA or donâ€™t want to navigate the process alone, call the Orland Park Veterans Disability Attorneys at Comerford Law Office today for more details on how we can help.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.

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.
