Metairie Social Security Disability Attorney
At the law office of Harold Ehrenberg, helping injured people is the only thing we do. Every day, we serve people across Louisiana and the New Orleans area who have been injured in accidents caused by the negligent or reckless acts of other people. In many cases, our clients’ injuries prevent them from working. This means that medical bills and living expenses are going unpaid. This only adds to our clients’ stress and anxiety.

One possible solution we discuss with our clients is Social Security Disability (SSD). SSD is a federal program that assists people who are unable to work because of an injury or illness. The Social Security Administration (SSA) handles the application and approval process. The SSA needs proof before it will approve a claim. With a knowledgeable lawyer on your side, you will have the strongest chance of approval.

Working Relentlessly To Help People Recover SSD Benefits

In order for a disability claim to be successful, you must prove the following to the SSA’s satisfaction:

  • That you cannot do the work you did before
  • You cannot transition to other types of work due to your disabling condition
  • That your disabling condition, such as an injury or illness, is expected to last for one year or longer
  • You have worked a sufficient length of time to qualify for benefits

The SSA requires substantial medical documentation in order to approve a claim for benefits. We will work closely with you to compile this evidence and present the strongest possible claim. It is also common for the SSA to deny claims for various reasons. There are numerous opportunities for appeal, and we can guide you through each part of the process as necessary. Our only goal is to help you get the SSD benefits you deserve.
