Whether you were born with a disability or acquired one during life due to an injury or an illness, living with a disability can be life altering. The complications stemming from a debilitating condition can often make it difficult or impossible to work. And for Tampa area residents unable to obtain or maintain gainful employment, it can be problematic when it comes to medical expenses and affording the cost of living.
Living with a disability is not only emotionally, mentally and physically challenging, it is also likely to cause much financial hardship. That is why our law firm is dedicated to helping individuals obtain the Social Security Disability benefits he or she is entitled to. At The Lawrence Law Firm, our experienced legal team is prepared to help our clients at any phase of the process, helping them overcome the challenges presented by a disability.
