Unfortunately, a doctor’s finding of disability is not sufficient to establish your rights to Social Security Disability. That finding is dependent on the type of injury or disease, the length of time of the disabling condition, your education and training and your age. An attorney can help you determine whether you will be successful.
No. An attorney is only paid if you are successful with your claim. The attorney takes a percentage of your past due benefits. Usually, the amount is 25 percent of those past due benefits.
No. There is no fee charged for appointments for disability and workers compensation.
You may be eligible for SSI if you have limited means. SSI may be available for those who have not worked recently or whose income through disability is below a certain amount.
