To Get You Compensated
If you become unable to work due to a serious illness, car accident, on-the-job injury, or any other medical reason, the loss of income can be catastrophic for you and your family. Social Security disability benefits and SSI are designed to give you important financial assistance in such circumstances. Shulman & Hill’s Social Security Disability lawyers are ready to answer your questions by phone or in-person in Brooklyn or Bronx.
However, the process of applying for such benefits has become increasingly complicated and difficult. The typical case involves preparing extensive paperwork, assembling massive medical documentation, dealing with a large government bureaucracy, and in most cases, submitting several appeals and requesting a hearing before a Social Security Judge.
