Many veterans come home with visible injuries, such as a lost limb or major scarring. However, a large number of veterans suffer from disabling conditions that are not outwardly visible but that does not make them any less debilitating. In fact, such “invisible” injuries can often be more difficult to deal with since many people do not understand that you have a disability. One such condition is post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
PTSD is a serious mental disorder that develops after a person has experienced a traumatic event that causes harm or present the threat of harm. Such events can include car crashes, assaults, disasters, and more. War is full of traumatic events so it should be no surprise that veterans regularly develop PTSD. The National Center for PTSD reports the following estimated statistics regarding PTSD among veterans:
As you can see, PTSD is a common disorder and no veteran should feel ashamed or alone in suffering from this disabling condition.
PTSD can affect each victim differently though the following are some of the most common symptoms and effects:
Many of these symptoms lead to withdrawal from the world and can make it difficult for some sufferers to even leave their homes out of fear of triggers. Even if PTSD victims do try to work and engage in regular activities, their anger and sudden fear may impede their success. For this reason, it can be very difficult for veterans with PTSD to earn a living until they are treated.
The VA provides benefits for veterans with disabling PTSD. These benefits are critical to support yourself, however, the process of obtaining benefits can be difficult. You can often improve your chances of receiving benefits by seeking help from a knowledgeable PTSD benefits attorney as soon as possible.
Many veterans suffering from PTSD believe that few people understand just how much their condition affects their lives. At the Comerford Law Office, we work closely with veterans on a regular basis and have witnessed firsthand just how devastating PTSD can be. As a member of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA), attorney James R. Comerford is committed to standing up for veterans and ensuring they receive the benefits for PTSD that they deserve. Call a PTSD VA benefits attorney for help at 312-863-8572 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.
