When you are badly injured or disabled, you have a right to seek the benefits you have earned.

When Should You Consult an Attorney About Social Security Disability?

The more time passes between your injury and the initial filing for Social Security Disability benefits, the more difficult it can become to present your case effectively. If you have been out of work for some time following an accident or serious illness, you should know that your Social Security disability insurance (SSD) status will eventually run out. Depending upon your last date of insurability, there may be little time to waste in filing your claim.
Early filing has an additional benefit in that it enables you to work with your doctors to document your disability. Waiting too long to file for Social Security disability can make it difficult to establish the medical evidence the Social Security Administration may require in order to approve your initial filing.
Regardless of the nature of your disability — severe workplace injury, illness such as heart or lung disease, even reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSD or chronic pain) — the earlier you consult the team at Sahady Associates, the sooner we can get to work to clear the path to the Social Security disability benefits you deserve.
