What you need to know ...
The federal government has two programs to help people who are unable to work because of disabilities: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you are unable to work for a year or more, you may qualify for benefits through these programs.
The process for applying for these benefits can be lengthy and confusing, and is certainly not something that an injured person or their family members are up to dealing with. Did you know, over 70% of claims are denied the first time.
When applying for Social Security disability it is very similar to a trial, complete with evidence and arguments. We can represent you throughout the process, including at any hearings before administrative law judges or in court.
Our firm will do a thorough analysis of your situation. We will ensure that we have a proper diagnosis so the correct listing for your disability is presented. We can work with your doctor so that the medical evidence is presented in the proper format.
We know what the Social Security administration is looking for. We can sift through all of the medical forms, employability analyses and other facts in order to make sure everything is in order.
Dealing with a disability is not only emotionally and physically challenging; it makes everything in your life harder. You should not have to deal with bureaucratic nonsense, too. Having an attorney to help you as you navigate through the process and the paperwork can not only increase your chances of success, but can also possibly secure lump sum benefits if your claim was initially denied.
