Skilled Legal Help For Disability Benefits
If you have become disabled due to injury or illness, the U.S. Social Security Disability Insurance system can provide benefits to help you meet your expenses while you are unable to work. Unfortunately, it isn’t easy to work your way through the system to get the benefits you need.
Even if you have filled in all your paperwork and provided documentation that you meet the system’s eligibility requirements, your initial application for benefits may be denied. In fact, by some estimates, most applicants are denied the first time around and must go through the Social Security Administration’s extensive system of hearings and appeals.
Your chances of success are much higher when you have a skilled lawyer on your side.
As a Social Security Disability attorney, I help the disabled and their families at almost any point in the process of applying for disability benefits, from initial paperwork to hearings and beyond. I know the pressures you are facing when you are unable to work, so I fight hard to get you the help you need.
My firm, the Law Office of Timothy J. Simon, P.C., helps clients in Grand Blanc, Michigan, and throughout the surrounding area. I have experience with issues such as:
- Work-related injuries
- Work-related illness
- Workers’ compensation
- Chronic illness
- Mental illness
- Motor vehicle accidents
There are many deadlines and hurdles to get over between the time you lose the ability to work and the time you start receiving your benefits. The process can take time, and getting through it requires patience, persistence and skill.
