Need a Social Security Disability Lawyer?
If you suffer from a physical or mental health condition that prevents you from working for a year or more, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you have been injured in the workplace, you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, even qualified applicants are sometimes denied the benefits they need to survive financially. By working with disability attorneys, people who are applying for benefits may be able to secure the legal expertise and support they deserve. If you need an SSI or SSD lawyer in Philadelphia and Harrisburg area or Cherry Hill, NJ area, turn to the law office of Lisa M. Ritacco.
Social Security Disability Benefits
SSD and SSI benefits are paid for by tax dollars and your contributions. During your working life, some of your earnings go towards these programs. Of course, if you become ill or are seriously disabled and need these benefits to pay for everyday bills, you expect SSD and SSI compensation to be there for you.
Unfortunately, in many cases, applicants who are legitimately injured and unable to work are denied the benefits that are supposed to help them. In fact, about two-thirds of disability claims are denied on the initial application.
Fighting the Odds
What can you do if you have a legitimate claim? One option is to speak with a disability insurance lawyer. An SSD attorney may have the experience, knowledge, and education to help you seek benefits. Experienced SSD attorneys know which terminology to use, how to file the correct forms, and how to navigate the complex benefits process. An experienced disability lawyer may also be able to strengthen your claim, offer legal advice, represent you, and present your case before the Social Security Administration. If you have not yet applied for benefits, a social security disability lawyer may be able to build the strongest application to reduce your chance of denial. If you have already applied and received a denial letter, an SSD lawyer may be able to handle your appeal, build your case, and make sure your appeal is filed within the necessary timeframes. Applying for SSI or SSD benefits is a complicated process, and many qualified applicants are denied benefits based on a technicality. Workers’ compensation claims are also complex and rely on strict deadlines. In most cases, you have 21 days or less to file your claim. If you are one of the 65% of first-time claimants who have been denied benefits, our team may be able to assist you. The law office of Lisa M. Ritacco specializes in SSD and SSI claims — she knows the law inside and out and has over twelve years of experience helping clients get the benefits they deserve.

Ritacco and her team today.
