In an ideal world, all of us would be physically and mentally able to work until we decided it was time to retire. In the real world however, many people’s careers are cut short due to unexpected injuries. Some of these injuries are so severe that the employees are never able to return to the jobs they used to have.
Employees in Georgia and throughout the United States who suffer injuries before retirement age may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits, and can apply for them through the Social Security Administration’s website. However, receiving Social security disability benefits for injury is rarely as simple as submitting an application and getting approval. In fact, many disability claims are initially denied for various reasons. Sometimes disability benefits are denied due to the applicant’s failure to include all necessary documentation or due to a lack of information proving your disability. The back-and-forth process between you and the SSA can be time-consuming and overwhelming, particularly if you are focused on your recovery. The attorneys at Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC, understand the difficulties that come with applying for SSD benefits.
Attorneys knowledgeable about Social Security disability benefits can help you from the minute you suffer your injury. From evaluating your case to determine whether you are entitled to damages to filing an application with a complete picture of your injury for the SSA to evaluate, attorneys can assist clients pursuing disability benefits. If the SSA follows-up with us for additional information, we will step in and make sure they have everything they need to make a timely decision. If the decision is not in your favor, we will consider an appeal.
Applying for disability benefits is a lot more complicated than just filing a form. For this reason, the attorneys at Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC, can assist clients with every step of the application process and appeal, if needed.
