Social Security Disability

Our expertise in Social Security Disability goes hand in hand with our long established practice in Worker's Compensation litigation.

If you have been diagnosed with a permanent injury or medical condition which is keeping you from returning to work you are entitled to apply for Social Security Disability.

The definition of disability under Social Security is different than other programs. Social Security pays only for total disability. No benefits are payable for partial disability or for short-term disability. Disability" under Social Security is based on your inability to work. They consider you disabled under Social Security rules if:

  • You cannot do work that you did before;
  • They agree that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

Many firms advertise that they can handle your SSD claim however few have our long established history of successfully representing disabled individuals in obtaining the Social Security benefits that they paid for in their working years and now are entitled to receive. As a former judge of the Workers Compensation Board Robert Purcigliotti knows very well how to clearly establish a claimant's disability. He reviews and presents each and every Social Security case that we handle so you are assured of expert representation.
