Disability can wreak havoc on a person’s life. It might keep a person from enjoying the life activities you once did and you might wind up facing significant financial hardship. Medical expenses, lost wages and rehabilitation costs can all mount, threating to throw you into a fiscal tailspin. While this is certainly true at the time you suffer a disability, those who are fortunate enough to recover from the debilitating injury or illness may struggle to recover from that period of financial turmoil.
Fortunately, as was discussed in last week’s post, even if you have recovered from a temporary disability and are now able to work, people may qualify to receive Social Security disability benefits retroactively. Certain requirements must be met, and the claim must be convincing, but recovering compensation for a person’s previous disability is possible.
These claims are heavily scrutinized, though, as are all other SSD claims. If people inadequately show that the condition met federal requirements with regard to disability determination, then they will probably be denied benefits. In other words, people cannot afford to put forth an incomplete claim. People need to present their case boldly, supported by the facts and the law.
Every day at The Lawrence Law Firm, we work with those affected by disabilities to seek out the compensation they deserve. We know how the law works in this area, and we are able to advise our clients as to how it applies to their particular case. Our attorneys also breakdown the requirements that must be met to be deemed disabled, and they diligently work with their clients to gather supporting evidence to strengthen a claim. At our firm, our team knows how difficult it can be to cope with a disability. With this in mind, we passionately pursue the compensation our clients deserve in hopes that they can secure themselves from financial hardship and focus on their recovery.
