Those who suffer from an illness that leaves them unable to work can face all kinds of hardships. Not only are they unable to earn a wage to support themselves, but these individuals can also face extensive medical expenses that can be quite expensive. Together, these financial damages and the physical and emotional pain caused by a debilitating illness can leave an individual overwhelmed, stressed and fearful for his or her future. To ensure that these pressures do not consume an individual, he or she needs to take the steps necessary to ensure that they find the financial security they need.
In these instances, the best way to do that is to seek Social Security disability benefits. As we discussed previously on the blog, even those who receive other benefits, such as workers' compensation, can still recover SSD benefits. Yet, to be successful in this process, these individuals need to be knowledgeable about the law and how to use it to their advantage. For this, many New Yorkers turn to skilled legal professionals, like those at Jonathan H. Poznansky Attorney at Law.
The professionals at our firm know how to spot SSD claim weaknesses and find evidence to strengthen them. We also know how to craft legal arguments that seek to satisfy administrative law judges during an initial claim evaluation. Those who have their claims denied can turn to us for competent appellate work, which is crucial, as many initial claims are denied. Even those who successfully obtain SSD benefits may need legal assistance from a firm like ours when they are facing reevaluation and the threat of benefit cessation.
Experienced attorneys, like those at our firm, stand ready to help disabled New Yorkers secure the assistance they need and deserve in these matters. SSD benefits can provide significant relief to those in need. Yet, the process is never as easy as it may seem. The government is constantly looking for ways to deny a claim, meaning that those seeking benefits need to put forth the best possible claim they can.
