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 following:

  • 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.

Filing a Social Security Disability Appeal

You have 60 days from the time of your receipt of initial application denial to file an appeal. Because of the short time frame you are allowed, it is very important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. We can help you file a proper appeal.

    “Mr. Klein has my complete confidence.”
    When I went to Mr. Klein I really didn't trust attorney's, but after meeting with Mr. Klein, he laid everything out for me, returned every phone call I made to him, and answered every question I had, no matter how stupid my question was. He knew I did not know how the law worked, so he explained everything to me. I trust him enough that I referred three friends to him. anytime I have a need for a attorney, it will me Mr. Richard Klein that I will call.
