Personal Injury Worker's Compensation Social Security Disability

"For over two years I was fighting with the Social Security Administration to get disability benefits. During that time I finally decided to hire Strakeljahn Law Offices to help me get my benefits as my Social Security Disability Lawyer. They contacted all my medical doctors and got my case in order. I then had a hearing before a social security judge, and with Strakeljahnís help, the judge found me disabled right there at the hearing."

Social Security Disability Lawyer

In Social Security disability cases the Social Security Disability Lawyer fee is twenty five percent of the past due benefits that were previously not paid. The Government has also placed caps on the amount an attorney may recover for attorney fees on rather large past due benefit cases. This fair and reasonable fee assures that your interests are aligned with ours because we donít get paid unless you do.

In order to qualify for benefits under the Social Security Administration, you need to be considered disabled. This generally means that you cannot perform your past work and are also unable to perform other types of employment. The Social Security Administration defines disability as the inability to engage in substantial gainful employment due to an impairment or combination of impairments, which has lasted or is expected to last for at least 12 months. At Strakeljahn Law Offices, S.C., we can help you prove and establish your claim before the Social Security Administration.
