Social Security Disability

If you suffer from a medical condition that prevents you from working, you may qualify for social security disability benefits. We are experienced in assisting the individuals with serious injury or disease in need of Social Security Disability (SSDI/SSD) benefits. We will aggressively pursue your claim for disability benefits in connection to a mental or physical illness or injury that renders you or a loved one unable to work. If you have been denied disability benefits, we will take all necessary steps to appeal your denial and help you recover the Social Security Disability benefits to which you are entitled. It is important to seek legal representation on your claim as soon as practical because you have a limited time period to file an appeal once you are denied benefits.

Pittsburgh, PA Social Security Disability Lawyers

Social Security Disability claims require systematic documentation and a strategic approach to protect your rights and claims. At Martin & Lerda, we assist people throughout the Social Security Disability evaluation, litigation and appeal process.

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be complex and requires significant documentation, an understanding of disability claims law, and skilled advocacy. Our attorney can provide the representation you need to collect the benefits to which you are entitled.

A skilled attorney can effectively identify your illness and articulate your need for disability benefits. Our firm has extensive experience in gathering evidence and arguing your case. We will take a comprehensive approach to your case to ensure that the SSA understands your unique illness and the ways in which it affects your life and limits your ability to work.
