Our last blog post discussed broken bones in the context of recovering Social Security disability benefits. In order to succeed on a claim, several elements must be shown, including that a break will leave an individual unable or nearly unable to walk, or that a break of an upper extremity bone will not heal within one year. Though this may sound simple enough, there are other factors that come into play, and the law surrounding Social Security disability is often complicated.
Therefore, if you have suffered an injury and are now unable to work, then you may want to ensure you put forth the best legal arguments possible given the circumstances. A Florida legal team experienced handling such cases, like the one at the Lawrence Law Firm, may be able to help do this. An experienced attorney can aid you in the assessment of your case and file your initial claim paperwork.
You should not be disgruntled if your initial claim is denied. This is a common occurrence, but is not necessarily a final determination. Instead, you can appeal the denial and fight for the compensation you deserve. In these circumstances, an attorney will aggressively pursue applicable legal avenues, which may include a more thorough display of the circumstances surrounding your injury and the extent of your harm.
Going through the Social Security disability claims process can be overwhelming, confusing, and frustrating. Fortunately, though, you can seek assistance from a compassionate, diligent, and competent attorney who may be able to help you better understand the claims process as it relates to your case and assist you in recovering the disability benefits you need and deserve. If successful, an attorney may help you acquire funds to help cover medical expenses and lost wages, leaving you as free as possible under the facts to focus on your health and well-being.
