Woburn, Massachusetts Social Security Disability Lawyers
At Marcotte Law Firm, we understand that getting SSD benefits can feel like life or death. No one wants to have to rely on Disability benefits to get by, but sometimes there’s no other option. That’s why we take particular care to make sure that our clients are put in the best position possible to get their benefits. This means meeting with a Woburn Disability Lawyer early in the process. It also means meeting with our clients throughout the process to make sure that our clients are on the right path.What Is Disability?
Social Security Disability are benefits for both children and adults with disabilities that keep them from being able to find and keep work. Because everyone is different, whether someone is disabled and eligible for SSD benefits is a very individualized question. Even so, there are “listings” that are maintained by the Social Security Administration. These are grids that combine disabilities, limitations, a person’s age, and work history to determine if a person is disabled.
However, not everyone fits nicely into these grids. The Social Security may consider a 55 year old with a bad back disabled, but they’ll deny a claim for a 53 year old with the exact same condition. Similarly, sometimes a person’s medical records don’t have the specific language that the Social Security Administration is looking for. In these cases, it’s important to have an experienced Woburn SSD Lawyer to help you through the process. This experienced disability lawyer can ensure that the medical records contain everything that the Judge will need to approve your benefits. The experienced disability attorney will also be able to explain to the judge how your medical records don’t tell the whole picture.Local Woburn Social Security Disability Attorneys
