A number of accidents can lead to temporary or permanent disability. Obscured vision, a broken or severed limb, or a debilitating spinal cord injury can all prevent you from seeking gainful employment. Such injuries can last anywhere from a few months to the rest of your life. The Social Security Administration provides for disability insurance to those persons who have lost the ability to work, but the application process can be challenging.
If you’re trying to get your Social Security Disability Insurance benefits started, then you need the assistance of someone who’s up to the challenge. The Germantown Social Security disability lawyers of the Greenberg & Bederman law firm can help you navigate the sometimes tricky process of applying for benefits. For over 26 years, our firm has fought for a number of clients to get proper compensation and benefits, and we can put those years of experience to work for you.
Maybe you have yet to apply for disability benefits, and right now you’re thinking that we’re over-exaggerating the need for assistance in the application process. But the Social Security Administration has incredibly strict guidelines that govern who is eligible, and any simple error in the application process can result in a delay of benefits necessary to maintain a pleasant standard of living. In fact, 70 to 75% of applications are actually denied by the administration. That’s not to see that those persons aren’t eligible or deserving, but that the difficulties of the bureaucratic process got the better of them.
We won’t let that happen to you. Our lawyers know the complexities of the application process, and we can help you take on the challenges that can present themselves so that your application goes through on the first try.
Have you already applied and been denied? Well, we can help you with that too. Of denied applications, 60 to 70% are actually overturned and accepted upon appeal. We can help coach you through the appeal process so that you get your application reconsidered and your benefits started. We’ll help you explore your relevant options and tell you what you should do if you have to appear in front of an Administrative Law Judge.
Don’t delay. Persons who have been denied have only 60 days to file an appeal. Don’t let that window close. Give us a call right away so a member of our experienced legal staff can provide you with a free consultation and answer questions as varied as:
- Do I qualify?
- Will I be approved?
- How soon can I apply?
- How long until my benefits begin?
- I’ve been denied, where do I go from here?
The answers to these questions and more are just a phone call away. Contact the Germantown Social Security disability lawyers of Greenberg & Bederman right away to get started.
