United States veterans who have a disability that is connected to their military service are entitled to tax-free benefits. Frustratingly, these VA benefits can be difficult to obtain. In fact, even wholly valid claims are sometimes initially denied.
At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, our Springfield veterans benefits attorney is dedicated to ensuring that veterans in our community are able to get the full income and medical benefits that they have earned.
As a matter of federal law, an individual must be properly accredited by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) before they can handle any aspect of a benefits claim. Our lead attorney, James R. Comerford, has the qualifications required to prepare, present and appeal your VA disability claim. Some examples of specific types of conditions that our team has handled include:
We also have experience handling VA benefits claims involving a wide variety of other types of illnesses and conditions. No matter the underlying circumstances of your case, we can help take you through every step of the claims process.
Our Springfield veterans’ rights legal team understands that each claim is unique. To ensure that your case is effectively handled, we promise to always give it the undivided, individualized attention that it requires. We can assist you in completing your initial VA application, ensuring that all supporting medical documentation is included, so that your claim is as strong as possible.
Unfortunately, in some cases, the VA understates the true severity of a veteran’s disability, assigning them a disability rating that is far too low. This results in benefits being reduced and even denied altogether. We will not let this stand. If the VA will not pay you full benefits, either because there is a dispute over the severity of your condition, or a dispute over whether or not it is connected to your military service, we will fight for your rights. A Springfield veterans’ rights lawyer at our office is are here to aggressively representing you during your appeal.
