If you become disabled and are unable to work, you might be entitled to file a claim for benefits from the Social Security Administration.
The test for disability in Social Security cases requires that you have a disability which has lasted or is expected to last for a period of twelve (12) months and that you are unable to do any work.
If you file a claim for Social Security Disability benefits and are denied, contact our office without delay. You MUST request "reconsideration" and a hearing before an Administrative Law judge within sixty (60) days from the date of the denial. If you fail to do so, you must start all over again and can loose a period of disability benefits for which you might be qualified for.
Attorney fees for Social Security Appeal cases are also done on a "contingency" fee basis and are 25% OR the maximum amount allowed by law, whichever is LESS.
