If you have been injured or become ill and are unable to work after one year, you may be eligible for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) payments. Unfortunately, obtaining the long-term benefit to which you are entitled is seldom easy. Most applications are denied at the first level. The process is usually frustrating and far more difficult than it appears.
Knowledgeable and experienced SSDI attorneys
That is why it is important to obtain the assistance of a knowledgeable and experienced Social Security disability attorney. At Uricchio, Howe, Krell, Jacobson, Toporek & Keith P.A., our lawyers will guide you through the regulations and red tape that can be so discouraging. We have more than 200 years of combined experience and know how to get through the process so that you obtain the disability benefit you deserve.
Lawyers who understand your frustration
We know that being unable to work is very frustrating. Having barriers put in your way when you apply for benefits just makes matters worse. You may have experienced similar barriers to collecting benefits when you applied for workers’ compensation. Sadly, obtaining SSDI if your injury or illness becomes permanent is equally challenging. That makes it crucial to have the assistance of someone who knows the system.
When do you need a lawyer?
We usually become involved in a SSDI case when the person is turned down for benefits after their first application. People receive a denial letter from the Social Security Administration and turn to an attorney to help them. Our experience with SSDI claims includes requests for reconsideration, appeals to an administrative law judge and submission of the paper record of your case to the Appeals Council in Washington, D.C. We also take cases beyond the Social Security system, appealing them in federal court if that seems likely to produce the outcome you need.
If you have been denied by Social Security or are simply considering whether you should apply for benefits, contact our South Carolina law firm immediately. Call us at (843) 723-7491 today to find out how we can help you with a Social Security disability claim.
