Social Security Disability
Applying For Social Security Disability Benefits
Many of our clients have paid into the Social Security system for years. However, when the time comes to collect benefits because of a disability that prevents them from working in any profession, they are often denied the benefits they deserve.
At the Law Offices of Edward P. Shaughnessy, located in Easton, Pennsylvania, we represent our clients throughout the administrative process of collecting SSD, including any hearings and appeals. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.
Preparing The Evidence To Support Your Case
At the Law Offices of Edward P. Shaughnessy, we have experience in successfully securing Social Security Disability benefits for our injured clients. While our background in this area is extensive, we can only succeed if we have the help, insight and testimony of physicians to prove that you do, in fact, have a viable claim to Social Security Disability benefits.
In establishing your case, our attorney will prepare the evidence for the hearings and communicate with you on a regular basis regarding what to expect and, more importantly, what the Social Security Disability judges will expect.
The administrative process can be complex and lengthy, with a volume of paperwork to fill out for hearings and appeals. We will serve as your advocate throughout every step in the hopes of successfully resolving your case.
A common misconception about Social Security Disability is that if you cannot work in the type of job you once had, you can qualify for benefits. SSD can only be collected if you cannot work in any job at all. Clients we have represented were generally advanced in age and afflicted with serious physical and/or mental issues that prevented them from working.
