One day you are going about your day-to-day business, at work, while driving a car, grocery shopping or doing any other everyday task. Suddenly, an incident occurs that causes you to suffer a catastrophic injury and changes your life forever. It could be a slip-and-fall accident, an injury suffered at work or a car crash. Broken bones, back injuries and brain injuries are only the beginning when it comes to a catastrophic injury. At times, these injuries can become so debilitating and long-lasting that they render the victim permanently disabled.
When a person in Pennsylvania suffers from a permanent disability, that person may be unable to work, unable to pay their medical expenses and, ultimately, unable to return to their former life. When this happens, seeking Social Security Disability benefits can be crucial.
However, it is important to work through the Social Security Disability application process carefully in order to ensure you are not wrongfully denied benefits. The Disability Law Office of Jeffrey S. Lichtman LLC understands that properly documenting injuries and illnesses is essential in obtaining the benefits a Pennsylvania resident needs. The Social Security Administration will complete a comprehensive review of an applicant’s medical condition to ascertain how that person’s injury affects their ability to work, along with their quality of life. The Disability Law Office of Jeffrey S. Lichtman has handled thousands of claims for benefits for over two decades, and understands the challenges people face during the application process.
Getting the right help in Pennsylvania after suffering a disabling injury can make a huge difference when it comes to applying for Social Security disability benefits.
