One of the most devastating experiences for Georgia residents is the process of suffering a serious illness or injury. In addition to suffering through the pain that accompanies the illness or disability, individuals often must go through extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation or therapy.
On top of all of this, the person may no longer be able to keep working at their current job. This adds significant financial stress, as the person now must find a way to afford the increased medical and other expenses while losing the income they are accustomed to receiving.
Fortunately, Social Security disability benefits can help individuals who have suffered an illness or injury and who are unable to continue working. As discussed recently in this blog, there are a number of medical requirements that must first be satisfied under the federal regulations before a person will be awarded disability benefits.
Our firm works closely with our clients to ensure they have the best possible chance of satisfying these requirements and obtaining an award of disability benefits. We examine our clients' personal circumstances, including the work they previously performed and their ability to do work in light of the illness or disability. We can then put together a strong case to obtain benefits by demonstrating that the person can no longer work in light of their illness or disability.
Even in cases when a person has been denied Social Security benefits, we can work to reverse this decision. In doing so, we can help tackle the financial stress the person is under, which will help them put their energy toward recovery and personal health.
