We have all heard the phrase "accidents happen." When we think about it, we often think of a simple trip, fall or bump. We don't think of severe and tragic incidents that could completely alter the life of the victim. These accidents we never believe will happen, and when they do, we often do not know what to do about them. While medical treatment is the obvious first step, what can Florida residents do when they are no longer able to work after suffering serious and debilitating injuries in an accident?
The answer in these matters is to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, but this is not a simple and straightforward process. Due to current media coverage, disabled individuals in Florida and elsewhere understand that many applications are initially denied. This can hinder some from applying for these benefits right away. With a backlog that could make the wait over a year, many are concerned that they may not recover these necessary benefits in time to make a big difference.
At the Lawrence Law Firm, our experienced legal team understands the fears and apprehensions a Florida resident might have about applying for SSD benefits. However, our law firm is not only dedicated to informing our clients in the Tampa area about their rights and options, we are also devoted to guiding our clients through the application, reconsideration and appeals process.
