Injury or illness can put Houston workers in dire financial shape

On Behalf of | Jan 7, 2016 | Social Security Disability

In the current economic environment, it is difficult enough for workers in the Houston area to earn enough income to pay for all of their recurring living expenses. But when a person’s health leaves them unable to maintain full-time employment, they may feel that they have little hope for being able to keep up with their bills. For people who suffer a long-term injury or illness that renders them unfit to work, this problem can quickly become a terrible reality.

At our Houston-based law firm, we understand just how scary it is to be unable to work. However, this is the kind of situation where Social Security Disability benefits may be an option. Attorney David Dopkin concentrates his practice on helping people navigate the SSDI system and secure benefits so that they can pay their medical bills and other living expenses.

Generally, SSD benefits are available for people with qualifying medical conditions that prevent them from working and earning a living. But, getting benefits is rarely as easy as an applicant might think. The applicant must be meticulous about completing all necessary forms, but must also be careful about providing medical records and other proof of their qualifying medical conditions.

We know how to help people with all phases of their claim for SSD benefits. In many cases, this means not only reviewing and timely submitting the initial application, but also appealing a denied claim. Our law firm’s website is a good source of information for SSD applicants and their family members who need to know more about their possibilities for getting benefits.

Anyone in the Houston area who truly needs SSD benefits should not be afraid to apply. Attorney David Dopkin can help ensure that the application is sound, and he will also aggressively fight to get benefits for those in need.
