Social Security Disability Lawyers Serving The State of Michigan
The damage from serious accidents often extends months and years into the future, affecting the ability of injury victims to work. If you have a documented medical reason for not being able to perform a job, you may be qualified to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
The process for obtaining benefits can be complicated and discouraging without a lawyer to help you through the process. At Liss, Shapero & Mitnick, we are dedicated to helping injury victims in the Metro Detroit area improve their lives and get the benefits to which they are entitled. To learn more about your right to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, call 248-584-1300 Toll Free 1-855-LISS-LAW for a free initial consultation.
Am I Eligible For SSD Benefits?
You must meet certain criteria in order to be considered disabled and qualify to receive SSD benefits:
- Your condition must be severe to prevent you from working for at least one year
- You are not able to perform the duties of your job because of your disability
- Your ability to work has diminished by a certain amount, or you are not able to work at all
- Your condition is on a specific list of impairments
- You are not able to do other types of work
Can I Salvage A Denied SSD Claim?
All is not lost if your initial claim gets denied. Many claims that are initially denied ultimately get approved with a little persistence and diligence on behalf of your lawyer. However, if your SSD claim has been denied, it is important to act quickly. Don't get discouraged and give up, because there is only a 60-day window during which you can appeal after your claim is denied. In addition to SSD benefits, you may also be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), but if you do not act there is nothing we can do to help you pursue your rights.
Thorough documentation is required to be successful in these cases. You can rely on our attorneys to determine what you are eligible for and to be your strongest advocate. We understand how to best deal with the Social Security Administration and can be relied upon to navigate through the bureaucracy to ensure you receive the full benefits you need to maintain your quality of life despite your injury or disability.
