Providing Counsel In All Social Security Disability Matters
If you suffer from a disease, disability or other medical condition that prohibits you from employment, you may be eligible to receive government assistance in the form of Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
Although you may be certain that you qualify for SSD, your initial application may have been denied. At Pope Law Office, PLLC, we are here for you to ensure your application is successful. Whether you’re ready to fill out the initial application or need to appeal a denial, our attorneys will help you manage the entire process.
To learn more about the SSD application and appeal process, call (716) 634-3320 to schedule a free consultation.
We Will Stand By You No Matter The Situation
SSD provides cash benefits on a monthly basis for persons who are totally disabled. In most cases you must be suffering from a condition that has or will prevent you from being employed for at least 12 months or a condition that will result in death. In applying for these benefits there may be several levels of appeal that we will help you pursue. It’s important to remember that a denial at any one level or a past denial may not disqualify you from receiving disability benefits.
Some of the many SSD questions we will help you address include:
- How do I begin the application process?
- Are there different qualifications for physical, psychological or emotional disabilities?
- What can be done to increase my chances of receiving benefits?
- Do I need to secure health care provider referrals?
When you speak with our team of lawyers, you will receive clear, concise answers to these and any other legal questions you may have. Instead of pushing you through the case and out the door, we want to make sure you understand your options, feel a sense of urgency over your affairs and feel comfortable with the recommendations we make.
No Fee Unless You Collect
Attorney fees in SSD cases are based on a percentage of any amount recovered with a maximum fee amount that can be charged established by the Social Security Administration. The Social Security Administration must approve any attorney fee requests. Whether you were injured on the job or due to the negligence of another, we can help you make sense of your options.
