SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY? WE'LL FIGHT FOR FREE!
Injured workers, such as those that are eligible for workers' compensation, should apply for Social Security Disability benefits as soon they become disabled. You can apply for SSD benefits by scheduling an appointment with a Social Security Administration (SSA) representative or by applying online.
The impact a denied Social Security Disability claim can have on an individual and their family, especially when these benefits are the applicant’s main source of income, can be devastating. More often than not, applications for Social Security disability are initially denied; however, an initial denial does not necessarily mean that the applicant is not entitled to benefits.
Unfortunately, applicants who have been rejected may choose to abandon their claims instead of proceeding with an appeal — a process that is undoubtedly intimidating to claimants even in a more typical personal injury case — where they could potentially recover the benefits they are rightfully owed. DOUD, SMITH & WAGNER's workers' comp, social security disability, and personal injury experts have extensive experience representing individuals in the application and appeals processes, among other practice areas, and have the resources needed to recover the benefits our clients deserve.
If you’ve been denied social security benefits, here’s something you need to know. The law firm you choose makes a BIG difference.
In fact, DOUD, SMITH & WAGNER wins more than the national average in recovering social security for clients that were denied. That means that when you hire our lawyers, you have a better chance of recovering than with the average lawyer. And that’s a really BIG deal and an absolute fact.
