Social Security disability benefits can provide a financial life raft to those who are unable to work on account of a debilitating injury or illness. That being said, not everyone who thinks they are disabled will be deemed worthy of benefits. This is because the Social Security Administration strictly scrutinizes all SSD claims it receives, looking for any reason to give a denial. So, disabled individuals need to know the evidence the SSA is looking for and how best to present it in an attempt to meet federal requirements.
Although an individual can certainly choose to pursue their claim on their own, many find the assistance of an experienced legal professional to be extremely valuable. After all, attorneys in this field know the process, how to satisfy certain disability requirements and how to aggressive appeal adverse decisions.
At the Law Office of Jennifer Zorrilla, our team of dedicated professionals give every case the individualized attention it deserves. This is critical, as every case is unique. Sure, two individuals may suffer from the same disability, but the evidence at their disposal could be completely different, thereby requiring a completely different legal approach. With this in mind, disabled Californians should think about steering clear of a one-size-fits-all approach, unless they want to leave themselves at an increased risk of claim denial and unsuccessful appeal.
Those individuals who are suffering from a disability need an advocate on their side who not only knows the law, but also understands the dire situation a disability can cause. A compassionate attorney is one who will fight harder for his or her client. We encourage those seeking SSD benefits to consider their options and approaches carefully.
