Most people in the Houston area are not independently wealthy and free to spend the rest of their lives without working. Some people might relish the thought of some day socking away enough money to be in a financial position to retire. Of course, that takes years of hard work and planning. If a person gets injured and is unable to work, it could lead to more problems than just derailing the person's expected retirement.
For some people, a long-term injury means that they cannot work now, and that they may not be able to hold down a steady job again in the future. Moreover, for people who are not fortunate enough to have enough money saved to where they no longer need to work, a serious injury means that they will be unable to pay their daily bills.
Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) is designed to help people who are in this position of being injured and unable to work. This is true regardless of whether the person suffered their injury from a work accident or from something completely unrelated to their job. David Dopkin is an experienced attorney who has dedicated his firm's practice to helping people seek the Social Security disability benefits that they need.
The SSDI system is supposed to help people who have long-term injuries get benefits to pay their living and medical expenses. However, the system is not perfect, and sometimes people who need help are denied benefits. Our Houston-based law firm strives to help people with the Social Security application process, but we also can help those people who have been denied Social Security.
