Social Security Disability
If you are unable to work as the result of a sustained injury or other medical illness, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income Benefits (SSI). Those benefits may be sought regardless of where or how the disability arises. Whether from a work-related incident, accident or illness, if you are unable to work as the result of an injury or illness that lasts for a minimum of one year, or have suffered an illness or medical condition that will ultimately result in death, it is clearly in your and your family’s best interest to contact our firm immediately.
Most applications for SSD and SSI are initially denied due to the applicants’ failure to obtain and adequately present the evidence that is necessary and required by the Social Security Administration to substantiate a claim and prove that the injury, illness or condition is in fact a disability that prevents an applicant from working.
Appealing a denial can be lengthy, extremely difficult and overwhelming for an unrepresented applicant. Our experienced Social Security Disability Lawyers continue to successfully handle difficult and complex cases for disabled individuals who, at first, felt hopeless and alone with nowhere to turn for desperately needed help.
