For many Florida residents, planning for the future means saving money for a trip or retirement, or drafting an estate plan to handle their assets after their passing. It is easy to plan for the likely events in life. However, it is challenging to prepare for events that we never expect. No one imagines to be injured or suffer a serious illness, resulting in a disability. Nonetheless, this unfortunate event happens to many American each year.
A disabling injury or illness does not only cause an individual pain and challenges in their life, it can make it impossible to maintain a job. The inability to work could cause much hardship for an individual, especially if they find it difficult or even impossible to pay their bills.
In these matters, apply for Social Security Disability benefits can be very valuable. Receiving these monthly payments could make a huge difference, allowing one to pay for their basic needs. However, apply for these benefits is not always easy, as an applicant must prove that he or she meets the SSA’s strict definition of disability. This is where legal assistance can be extremely beneficial.

Additionally, we are well aware that the SSA will deny many initial claims. When this occurs, we are prepared to help our clients throughout the reconsideration and appeals process.
