Social Security Disability Lawyer in Manassas, Virginia
Let a Manassas Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsTo suffer an injury that leaves you disabled and out of work for any amount of time can be a difficult experience for you and your family. As that layoff extends and you lose income because of a disability, your ability to pay bills is strained even more. For that reason, the Social Security Administration offers disability benefits to workers who have paid their taxes into the social security system and are not able to work a full-time job because of a disability. Hiring a social security disability attorney can be critical to having your SSD or SSI (supplemental security income) claim approved. Lawyers with knowledge of social security disability law can build a case that can improve your chances of being found disabled by the Social Security Administration.
SSD attorneys can help you through any step of the disability claims process from the beginnings of the application to any possible appeals that may need to be filed. The latter is important because nearly three-quarters of disability claims are first rejected. While it isn't necessary to have the help of a licensed attorney for the entire application procedure, there are many parts of it that can not be easily completed by the average person. Having an experienced disability advocate can help move past a lot of the red tape involved in acquiring your benefits.
