Social Security Disability

Our firm has been successfully obtaining disability benefits for clients for over 20 years. “Disability” is defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA) as a person’s inability to perform any kind of work for which is suited because of an injury or a medical condition. The disability should be expected to last for at least one year, or result in death. The disability can be a result of a physical or mental condition, or a combination of a number of such conditions.

Have you been denied Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) benefits? Contact us today for a free evaluation of your case.

Disabled persons or their families are eligible to collect SSDI. Once benefits begin, they will continue as long as the person remains disabled.

It sounds like a simple process, yet the SSA often denies truly disabled claimants by making the process very difficult. First, there are thousands of people who apply for SSDI each year. The lines are long and the forms are complicated. Benefits for legitimate claims are often denied-not only once, but twice and sometimes even more times. As a result, many people who apply on their own become discouraged and intimidated. So they give up when they are genuinely entitled to benefits.

That’s where an attorney experienced in Social Security Disability law is necessary. An attorney can help you get the benefits that you are entitled to in a timely manner.
