If you’ve suffered an injury in an accident and have been left disabled as a result, chances are good your hands are more than full just trying to fulfill chores of everyday life. Bathing, general hygiene care, dressing, even getting in and out of bed may require a second set of hands.
If your condition is such that you know won’t be able to work for at least a year or more, your very survival could be at risk. You may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits if you’ve got enough credits on the board. But if everyday life is difficult for you, consider the challenges inherent in applying for SSDI. The process can be mind boggling. Many initial applications are denied. Appeals can take years.
Just as with everyday matters, a second set of hands might be required. And while a volunteer or even someone specifically trained as an SSDI advocate can provide such help, there are a number of reasons why turning to an attorney with demonstrated skill in Social Security Disability matters makes the most sense.
First, lawyers with a focus in this area of the law have a unique depth of knowledge that sets them apart. In addition, they have the obligation of meeting the standards of the California Bar Association. Volunteers and advocates face no such similar demands.
