While dealing with the physical pain and stress that comes after being hurt at work, it’s easy to feel like there is no hope and no one to help you but you aren’t alone. Our legal team is here to support injured workers when they need it most.

When a client comes to us for assistance, we review every aspect of their case, determine which avenues of compensation they may be able to take, and then help guide them through each process. There is no need to wait – our firm can help immediately after the accident with the initial application or, if you’ve already filed a claim and it has been denied, we can help with the appeal.

Appeals are even more complicated than the initial filing and it may take months for an applicant to even get a hearing scheduled. Working with an attorney will help to expedite this process and make sure that the hearing goes as smoothly as possible.

Social Security was created to help the elderly after they retire, however, it is also designed to assist workers who have been injured and are no longer able to pursue their chosen career.

The process of filing a claim for this type of financial support is difficult and is best done with the help of an attorney who is familiar with the process and who stays on top of any changes. It might seem like overkill to work with a lawyer but in the average year, more than 65% of all claims are denied.

Once a denial has been issued, it usually takes around 17 months for an appeal hearing to even be scheduled. During this time, applicants are left to fend for themselves which is why it’s best to have a claim approved as quickly as possible.
