The burden of proof is a heavy one
If you are injured and unable to return to work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. Regrettably, the Social Security Administration frequently makes this difficult. You should expect to have a tough time if you are unfamiliar with the application procedure, which is why we urge that you deal with an experienced SSD benefit attorney.
Keep in mind that it is up to you, the worker, to establish that you were injured and are unable to return to work. In certain circumstances, simply demonstrating that you were injured at work and are unable to work is insufficient. If you make a little error in your file, it might damage what would otherwise be a good claim.
We’ll show you the evidence that backs up your claim
The default position of the Social Security Administration is to be skeptical of any claims for SSD benefits. Even if your employer accepts that you were hurt on the job, you will need further proof. We know what kind of evidence, and how much of it, will persuade them. We understand how to gather and present it. We know how to convince them that your ailments are serious and that you will be unable to work in the near future.
We’ll make sure your claim is error-free and submitted on time
Errors and late applications are the two primary stumbling blocks that can cause severe delays or rejections. The page of every form must be completely filled out and error-free, according to the SSA. You can be sure that if it isn’t, it will be returned to you. When you’re hurt and can’t work, the last thing you need is to waste time filling out legal paperwork.
Similarly, there are certain deadlines that must be adhered to. If you are unable to do so, your claim will be denied. We have a lot of expertise with situations exactly like yours at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, and we’re here to help you be authorized. Call us right now at 800-333-0000 to see how we can assist you.
