San Bernardino’s Experienced Social Security Attorney
If you’ve suffered an injury that has left you disabled, you probably know how difficult it can make life for you and your family. Recovering from the physical and mental trauma of a debilitating injury is challenging enough, but when you aren’t able to perform your job and earn your normal wages, it can become extremely stressful. Whether you need compensation for lost wages while you recover or for the rest of your life as a disabled person, thankfully, there are laws in place to help individuals in either situation.
If you have suffered an injury that is long-lasting or permanent, you can be protected by SSDI benefits. While this program can provide great benefits for the people who need it most, there are others who attempt to fake injuries in order to receive compensation. These common fraud cases have forced the application process to become rather strict and tedious, so the government can better catch these false claims. However, it has, unfortunately, also made the process challenging for innocent disabled people who truly need access to SSDI benefits. This is where a knowledgeable social security attorney comes in.
The office of Dr. Bill LaTour has helped countless Southern California clients through the cumbersome application process to obtain the SSI or SSDI benefits they need. If you have a disability that prevents you from working, contact our office at (877) 668-9510 to speak with a social security attorney. We want to help make your life a little easier.
Was Your SSDI Claim Denied? Here’s What to Do.
The Social Security Administration actively looks for reasons to deny your claim, and they will be quick to do so. In fact, more often than not, individuals that file a disability claim get denied the first time. Even if you absolutely cannot work another job and have certification from your doctor to prove it, you could be denied benefits. Sadly, the process is so complex and time-consuming that many give up after being denied. Please keep in mind that this is not your only option. If your claim has been denied, don’t worry. The offices of Dr. Bill LaTour can advise you on what to do next.
- After a claim has been denied, you can fight it through the appeals process. However, it can get complicated, and you’ll need someone that not only understands Social Security, but is able to effectively back up your case.
- Call the office of Dr. Bill LaTour at (877) 668-9510, so we can review your claim. With an experienced social security attorney on your side, you can have the determination and know-how to navigate the tricky legal landscape and receive the benefits you rightfully deserve.
- While denials are common, each individual case is different, and the likelihood of your claim being denied the first time is based on your individual circumstances. Only a knowledgeable social security attorney can evaluate your specific situation, and determine the appropriate measures that need to be taken in your application process.
If your ability to work has been hindered by an incapacitating injury or disease, but your claim for SSDI benefits was denied, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Bill LaTour’s Social Security Law Office. We’ll review your case, and assist you through every step of the challenging legal process to get you on the road to receiving the benefits you’re entitled to.
