Indiana’s military service members give everything they have to their country. Unfortunately, many veterans return from service with lifelong physical and mental health problems. In these situations, the VA provides for disability benefits in the form of a monthly, tax-free payment.
There are a number of requirements veterans must meet before receiving disability compensation. At the Comerford Law Office, LLC, our experienced Indianapolis veterans disability benefits attorneys can assist you in determining your eligibility, dealing with the initial paperwork, and if for any reason your claim is denied, filing a form 9 (appeal) with the VA.
There are two basic qualifications for VA disability benefits:
The phrase â€śservice-connected condition,â€ť in turn, refers to one of three possible scenarios:
Of course, not every service-related sickness or injury is actually disabling. There are certain â€śpresumedâ€ť disabilities that qualify a veteran for benefits once he or she receives a doctor’s diagnosis. Some of the more common presumed disabilities include:
Even with a presumed disability, many veterans still find it a challenge to obtain VA benefits under the law. Attorney James R. Comerford understands this struggle. As a VA-accredited Indianapolis veterans disability benefits lawyer, he has the experience and resources to guide you and your family through the process. So if you need more information regarding VA disability benefits, contact The Comerford Law Office, LLC, by telephone, email, or online to schedule a free consultation today.
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. A professional and true gentleman, even when I would ramble on with worry, James was very understanding and able to put my concerns at ease.

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.
