Social Security Disability benefits
Individuals who are disabled and unable to work may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, if they have a significant work history and the disability is expected to keep them from working for 12 months or more. Individuals who do not have a significant work history may be eligible for disability benefits through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.
We assist clients who are seeking SSD or SSI benefits, and those whose initial claims have been denied. It is important to note that the vast majority of initial claims are denied. Working with an attorney during the appeals process can improve your chances of success. Talk to a lawyer from our firm to learn how we can help.
Workers' Compensation Benefits
Individuals who are injured on the job may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits. In order to successfully claim workers' comp benefits, it is not necessary to prove that the employer was negligent — only that the accident occurred at work, or while fulfilling work-related tasks. Aside from helping clients seek workers' compensation benefits, we will explore the possibility of pursuing a third-party liability claim if a negligent co-worker, product manufacturer or other third party was responsible for causing the accident.
No recovery, no fee: We often represent clients on a contingency basis, meaning that you will pay no fees unless we are able to secure your benefits.
