Claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Motor Vehicle Accidents and other Personal Injury (PI)
We understand the financial stress disability from injury and illness place on our clients and their families, and consider this in the fees we charge. In Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims and claims for personal injury (PI) such as motor vehicle accidents, no legal fee is paid unless benefits are awarded.
Claims for Virginia Retirement System (VRS) Disability
Long Term Disability (LTD) – Workers’ Compensation
We will evaluate other types of claims for injury or disability and try to structure a fee that considers our client’s circumstances and the likelihood of success. In many instances we are able to structure a fee where a substantial portion of the legal fee is paid only if benefits are awarded. Please call us for a fee quote.
An Experienced Disability Attorney Can Help
Winning a disability claim involves a complex process requiring knowledge of the law and regulations, and the presentation of medical evidence often using expert witnesses. We provide diligent and aggressive representation through the administrative process and at disability hearings.
Most claims for disability involve both legal and medical issues. We gather medical documentation and work closely with our client’s physicians in developing proof of disability.
When Do You Need a Lawyer?
It is often best to retain an attorney at the beginning of a claim. Some clients retain our services during the initial application process. Some clients engage us after benefits have been denied.
Mistakes can be made by a client when filing an initial claim or during the appeal process. Our goal is to get your claim back on track. In some cases the evidence submitted during the administrative review process is the only evidence considered by the court on appeal.
We Maximize Overlapping Benefits from All Claims
We maximize benefits and compensation from all available sources. If there is a claim for a work injury or personal injury, and a claim under a disability program or plan, applying the regulations and law is complicated. Disability programs and plans, and claims for personal injury and worker’s compensation frequently overlap.
We can represent you in your Social Security Disability (SSDI) claim, and other types of disability and injury claims such as claims for Virginia Retirement System (VRS) Disability, long term disability insurance (LTD), motor vehicle accidents and other personal injury (PI) and workers compensation.
