You Deserve Benefits — We Can Help You Get Them
Whether you are experiencing chronic back pain, arthritis, head trauma, or an electrical injury, if you cannot continue the work you performed before the injury, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. More than 375,000 Americans become totally disabled every year, and more than 8 million Americans are currently living with a long-term disability that impedes or prevents them from working. The United States Social Security Administration considers you eligible for disability benefits if:
- You have worked in a job that has paid into social security on your behalf.
- You cannot do work that you did before because of your medical condition.
- You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition.
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.
If you or a loved one has experienced a total disability, or if your Social Security Disability claim has been denied, an attorney experienced in social security disability cases can help you expedite the claim process or succeed in appealing a denied claim. Give us a call at Law Offices of Anthony S. Muharib to speak with our experienced disability attorney today.
I Can’t Work. What Should I do?
Regardless of where you are in the claim process, it is both wise and prudent to contact an attorney experienced in disability claims. Most disability claims take almost a year to be reviewed and appealed and have benefits distributed. The sooner the process is started, the sooner you can begin receiving financial assistance to help you through this difficult time. A disability attorney will act as your advocate and will understand how to best present your case so you may receive your Social Security benefits. Additionally, your attorney will help you collect and present necessary medical documentation.
Can A Lawyer Help Me If My Claim Was Rejected?
It is actually quite common for an initial disability claim to be rejected. In Texas, around 77% of initial claims are denied. Most claims are not accepted until they go before a judge in a hearing after an intense, multistep process. Your disability lawyer will prepare you for the hearing so you know what to expect and are confident in your case. Additionally, your attorney will make sure your case is strong, even providing witnesses if necessary to make sure you are granted disability benefits. Maybe most importantly, hiring an attorney will alleviate the burden of doing this work on your own, while also dealing with a life-altering and financially devastating disability.
