Veterans’ benefits are a form of regular monthly payment to those who sustained chronic injuries as a result of their military service. Those who file claims on the VA disability fund are required to make medical and legal arguments for why their disability qualifies under the fund. This is not easy. In some cases, it may go smoothly, but in the vast majority of cases, the VA will deny your claim, and you will have to file an appeal. This is usually when The Comerford Law Office becomes involved in cases.
Each claim is unique, but the standard of proof is identical in any filing. You must be able to prove that you sustained an injury, this injury was a result of your military service, and that your injury seriously impairs or prevents you from doing work for which you are qualified. When these three elements are met, you have a successful VA disability application.
Meeting those criteria is not easy. This is why many veterans obtain the help of a qualified VA disability lawyer.
The most common reason that the VA gives for denying a claim is a lack of information. However, it may not necessarily be apparent what kind of information they are requesting. The veterans’ attorneys at The Comerford Law Office have experience filing these claims; we can help predict what types of evidence the VA is looking for, and greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to successfully file a claim.
The Comerford Law Office will work closely alongside your doctors to get the medical evidence you need to prove your case to the VA’s satisfaction. In some cases, we bring on vocational counselors and experts who can testify concerning the type of work you can and cannot perform, how long you can perform it, and the extent to which your injury prevents you from working. If the VA claims that your injury did not occur as a result of your military service, we can help provide evidence that they are wrong.
The Comerford Law Office has successfully resolved thousands of VA disability benefits claims for our clients.
