Social Security Disability Lawyer: Answers You Need
Ochs & Klein: St. Louis Personal Injury Attorneys
Most people are denied their initial applications for Social Security Disability
(SSD) — as much as 80%. This government assistance program is designed
to provide monetary help to individuals whose serious injuries prevent
them from making a living for a minimum of one year. The initial decision
from the Social Security Administration (SSA) usually takes a few months.
Social Security Disability is for individuals who qualify as disabled per
- The applicant is unable to do the work he / she did before
- The applicant's injury is projected to affect the victim for one year
or cause death
- The applicant cannot adjust to other types of work due to his / her medical
condition, as determined by the Social Security Administration
To hasten this process, it is a good idea to include your complete medical
records with your application. Again, remember that most initial applications
are turned down. It is recommended that you file an appeal, and a St.
Louis personal injury lawyer from our experienced team at Ochs & Klein
Attorneys, P.C. can assist you, guiding your steps so that you avoid common errors.
