After you have provided us with your information, a seasoned Social Security disability attorney will determine whether or not you have a strong case. The two disability programs that we help our clients with include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) as well as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Applying and being approved for Social Security benefits can be a difficult process if done alone.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Definition of Disability That is Used by Social Security?
It should be noted that Social Security uses a different definition of disability than other government programs. Under the current Social Security rules, you are considered disabled if you meet the following criterion:
- Cannot complete the same type of work that you did before
- They make the determination that you are unable to adjust to your work due to your disability
- Your disability has an expected result of death and/or lasts for a minimum of one year
Can’t I Apply For SSI/SSDI on My Own?
Yes, you absolutely can. However, your chances of having your application approved are greatly increased when you work with a Social Security disability attorney that understands the process and how to present your case in the most effective manner.
Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer to Pursue a Claim?
No, you do not need a personal injury lawyer to pursue an injury claim. Though working with an attorney that has expertise in personal injury law will make it much easier. This is especially true when negotiating with multi-billion dollar insurance companies, following the correct protocol, and proving your case.
What if The Accident Was Partially My Fault?
Never admit fault at the site of the accident. In some instances, there may have been outside factors that contributed to the accident. Furthermore, California utilizes comparative-fault laws. So you still may be able to recover a percentage of your damages. Allow your personal injury lawyer to investigate the accident and come to a conclusion.
