May 27th, 2019| If you’re like millions of Americans, you and your loved ones can’t risk losing even a single paycheck. That means that if you get injured or develop a serious illness that prevents you from working, you may be facing financial uncertainty. The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides benefits for people whose health problems keep them out of work for long periods of time, but getting those benefits is often difficult. That’s because the SSA has strict criteria for determining who gets benefits. At Berg Injury Lawyers, our California Social Security Disability lawyers know how the process works, and we help people like you maximize their chances of approval in the following three ways:
- We collect evidence that proves you can’t work—The SSA is often skeptical of claims when applicants say they’re too sick or hurt to work. We can collect accident reports and medical records that prove your claim.
- We make sure your application is complete, accurate, and submitted on time—The SSA wants applications to be free from errors and oversights. Even small mistakes can jeopardize claims, but we make sure yours is airtight.
- We use our knowledge of the SSA’s processes to improve your chances—We know the ins and outs of the SSA’s review and approval processes. That means we can put our knowledge and resources to work for your family to give you the best chances of approval.
