SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has implemented a list of criteria that a claimant must meet in order to receive benefits and/or compensation.

  1. Mental or physical condition must be rated severe.
  2. Your condition must meet the minimum durational length of 12 months.

To increase your chances of a favorable verdict, a medical evaluation must be performed by a trusted medical professional in a timely manner. Upon completion, a disability examiner or disability judge will review the evaluation and determine whether or not your claim qualifies for disability benefits.

SOCIAL SECURITY INCOME

Social Security Income (SSI) is much more than retirement income. Persons with low income and who are 65 or older, blind, and/or disabled may be eligible to receive SSI. There are many factors that help determine your eligibility. If you believe you have been wrongfully denied SSI, contact an attorney at The Law Office of Erik W. Berger for a FREE Consultation.

LONG TERM DISABILITY

In addition to being physically injured, the stress of being unable to work is as equally overwhelming. Long Term Disability Insurance is intended to provide compensation for workers that are unable to return to work before 6 months. Most employers will provide Long Term Disability coverage, however there are certain coverage criteria such as length of employment and employment status. Being injured off the job may require you to seek an alternative way to pay for bills and lost wages. If you have filed a Long Term Disability claim and were denied, contact a Disability Attorney at The Law Offices of Erik W. Berger.

SHORT TERM DISABILITY

At the Law Firm of Erik W. Berger we assist individuals who have been denied Short Term disability benefits that the individual either purchased on their own or received as a benefit of their employment. Individuals need to be aware that in most instances they will only have one (and maybe two) chances to appeal an unfavorable decision by the Insurance company. Thus, it is important that following a denial of benefits legal assistance is sought immediately and every effort be made to provide the Insurance company with the relevant evidence and/or argument needed to support the claim for benefits.

PERSONAL INJURY

The moments after an accident are always the most crucial. It is advisable to seek medical attention immediately after an accident whether you feel injured or not. This can prove to be beneficial when you decide to file a personal injury claim. Our relationships with experienced medical personnel aid us in determining short term and long term impacts that may be suffered. Our firm has experience in presenting details of your accident to award you the most compensation possible. Contact us for a FREE consultation.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

If your employer has 4 or more employees, they are required by law to carry Workers’ Compensation Insurance. This is intended to compensate employees if they are injured on the job or become ill due to circumstances of his or her job. The employer is required to report any and all injuries to the insurance company immediately. If they fail to do so and you are denied benefits, you may be entitled to back compensation. For a FREE consultation, contact an attorney at the Law Offices of Erik W. Berger.
