Sometimes we are injured and are no longer able to work. At these times you may file claims for Workers Compensation Insurance if you are hurt on the job, or if not, you may file for Social Security Disability Insurance. The odds are high that you will be denied for benefits under either insurance plan. If you have been denied, you need to seek the advice of a LTD Attorney in San Diego.
Most employers provide Workers Compensation insurance, so if you are hurt on the job, you can file a claim and receive benefits while you are unable to work. These benefits provide you with money that can help you pay your every day bills and your medical expenses. These benefits provide you with a security to be able to provide for your family should you suffer an injury. The sense of security can be quickly dampened when these benefits are denied and you are unable to work and have no means of support available.
If your injury is more severe and you become disabled, you will need to file for Social Security Disability Insurance. The Social Security Disability program will pay you if you are disabled for more than a year or your injury results in your death or the death of a loved one. Receiving disability benefits is an extensive process and qualifying is more complicated than your doctor saying you are disabled. The requirements for SSDI are complex, and the forms are hard to fill out. It is common for legitimately disabled persons to be repeatedly denied. It is not required that you have a lawyer represent you in filing a SSDI claim, but if you have been denied, it is strongly recommended.
The disability attorney is familiar with the complex laws and rules surrounding filing claims and receiving benefits with the Workers Compensation Insurance and Social Security Disability Insurance. The attorney is familiar with the intricate forms and knows how to complete them in order to meet the strict requirements of either insurance.
