Social Security Disability

If you have become unable to work due to an illness or injury, you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits.

Unfortunately, when you are disabled it is hard to do things, and that includes dealing with the Social Security Administration. The SSA is a large, impersonal, and complicated bureaucracy, and the time when you need it the most is the time when you are least able to deal with the frustrations of trying to get it to help. This is when you need to consider the help of our social security disability lawyers in Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia.

The Social Security Administration’s system for evaluating disability applications and appeal decisions

People who never see you decide your Social Security disability claim at the initial and reconsideration levels. Usually, the initial and reconsideration decisions are not favorable.

If your claim has been denied at both the initial and reconsideration levels, you can request a hearing. A hearing involves a much different procedure. At a hearing, you and your lawyer appear in person before an Administrative Law Judge and explain how your condition makes you unable to work. It is at the hearing level that we win most of the cases we are able to win.
