When a Los Angeles resident suffers from a serious injury or illness, there can be a lot of trepidation about what the next steps should be. This is particularly true when the injury or illness leaves that individual unable to work and earn an income to support themselves and their family.
Some people are lucky enough to have money saved up for just such an unfortunate situation. However, it is probably not a stretch in this post-recession economy to say that many people are just lucky enough to be living from paycheck to paycheck. So, when that paycheck isn’t coming because you aren’t able to work, what are your options?
If you are dealing with a serious injury or illness, it may be a good idea to consider whether or not the condition could be labeled as a disability. If the condition meets the requirements, you may be able to apply for Social Security Disability benefits.
SSD benefits help millions of Americans who are unable to work. The vast majority of these people would work if they could, but they simply cannot overcome the limitations imposed on them by their disability. At our firm, we recognize the struggle that people in this type of situation are facing, and we strive to help them to be successful in applying for SSD benefits. Or, if they have been denied Social Security, our clients know that we will help them to appeal the decision and hopefully the result will be different with our assistance.
