Skilled Attorneys For People With Disabilities
The federal government provides two forms of benefits to those who suffer from a disability: Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). In addition, many employer-provided insurance policies contain a provision for short-term or long-term disability benefits.
The process of applying for and obtaining Social Security disability or private disability benefits can be complex. There are many potential pitfalls that can result in serious difficulty in obtaining the benefits you need. Contact us today. A lawyer at our firm can offer you legal guidance and a free consultation, if the disability was caused by a negligent third party or was work related.
Do You Have A Disabling Condition?
At the Law Offices of John J. LaCava, LLC, we represent clients throughout Fairfield County who — because of an auto accident, motorcycle or bicycle accident, workplace or other accident — have been diagnosed as totally disabled by their doctor.
Just because your doctor has told you that you are disabled, it does not necessarily mean that obtaining private insurance or Social Security Disability benefits will be easy. The insurance companies and the Social Security Administration (SSA) have very specific definitions of what a disability is. These definitions may not align with the medical definition your doctor is relying on to make a diagnosis.
