Proving eligibility for SSD benefits after an injury

When Michigan residents suffer a serious injury, a lengthy recovery and even temporary or permanent disabilities may be the result. Unfortunately, this often makes it difficult or impossible for the injured person to work, leading to lost wages and financial problems. Our law firm understands that this is a difficult predicament to be in. However, Social Security Disability benefits could help fill this major financial void.

At Miller Cohen, P.L.C., we are dedicated to helping our clients though the SSD benefit process, ensuring that they understand the process, how to qualify and what could be done if they are initially denied these benefits. While SSD is a federal program designed to assist those who are facing finical hardships due to a disability or injury, it can be a complex application process.

Many first-time applicants are denied. However, this should not discourage applicants or indicate that they will not qualify for the benefit. At our law firm we are familiar with the application process and have helped past clients prove that they are qualified after being denied. Our legal team has medical and investigative resources to help challenge a denial. With a thorough understanding of how this government program operates, we have assisted past clients with their actions, resulting in positive outcomes.

The total inability to work is not necessary to qualify for SSD, which is contrary to what many believe. In fact, in order to qualify applicants are only required to have documented medical reasons for why they cannot perform any job they are qualified for. At our law firm we work with our clients to explain what is required, ensuring that they fully understand their situation and what they must do to prove eligibility for SDD benefits for an injury.
