Throughout time, fate throws curveballs that can change the direction of our lives. For many Floridians, this means a suffering a disabling injury or illness that leaves them unable to work. As we discussed last week, these conditions can often arise in the aftermath of a serious car accident. Recouping from these injuries can take a significant amount of time, and for some the healing process never ends. When these individuals are unable to work for a significant period of time on account of their disability, then it may be time to seek out Social Security disability benefits.
The reality of the SSD claims process is that many initial claims are denied. There are a number of reasons why a claim can be denied, including failing to meet the requirements for a listed disability. This is why it is imperative that those who are pursuing an initial claim ensure that their claim is as fully prepared as possible, aimed at meeting all federal requirements. Claims may also be denied if an individual fails to show that he or she in unable to work or fails to demonstrate that he or she possesses the requisite work history.
This is why at The Lawrence Law Firm our dedicated team of skilled legal professionals not only help individuals prepare and present their initial claims, but we also aggressively pursue appeals of denied claims. There are many steps in the appellate process, each of which will require strong legal arguments showing why a SSD claim should be granted.
Our years of experience allow us to quickly identify problem areas in our clients’ claims and dedicate our efforts to supporting that area of the claim with available evidence and existing law. For those who are disabled, recovering SSD benefits for injuries and illnesses can mean the difference between financial stability and financial ruin, as a successful claim can help cover medical expenses and lost wages. Therefore, we take each and every clients’ claim seriously and give it the individualized attention it deserves.
