The attorneys at Joyce & Bittner have more than 25 years of experience helping clients obtain the help they need to minimize the financial strain caused by the injury or disability. Contact our disability claim lawyers to learn more about pursuing a disability claim through Social Security disability or workers’ compensation.
Social Security Disability (SSD)
Individuals who have a disabling medical condition which will render them incapable of working for at least one year (or a condition which is expected to lead to death) may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits (monthly income benefits). The process for obtaining Social Security disability benefits can be frustrating – most initial applications are denied. Having an experienced Social Security disability claim lawyer from Joyce & Bittner on your side can help you obtain the benefits you need with less difficulty.
Our SSD lawyers help clients throughout the disability claim process, from filing the initial claim to requesting reconsideration of the claim (upon first denial) to appealing the second claim denial in court.
Individuals who are injured in the course of their work may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if the injury limits their ability to continue working – either temporarily or permanently. Workers’ compensation benefits may include lost wages, medical expenses and permanent disability benefits (for permanent loss of function). In order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits, the individual must prove the extent of the injury or disability, that the injury was in fact work-related and that the injury has limited the ability to continue working for a period of time.
At Joyce & Bittner, our work injury attorneys are experienced in helping clients through the workers’ compensation claim process. We assist clients with understanding their rights under workers’ compensation, filing a workers’ comp claim, appealing claim denials and appealing termination of benefits.
