Physical Impairments And Disability Benefits

People coping with physical impairments already face many challenges in their lives. The added financial stress and worry of being turned down for SSI, SSDI or long-term disability can make an already difficult situation feel overwhelming.

At The Law Office of Andrew Reichardt, PLLC in Salt Lake City, we understand this. That is why we work tirelessly to get you the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and long-term disability benefits you need and deserve.

For nearly a decade, attorney Andrew Reichardt has helped people with a broad range of physical impairments, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Diabetes
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Heart disease
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Crohn's disease
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD)

Benefits From The Social Security Administration

For years, you have worked and paid into the Social Security system. You didn't choose to pay into the system; you were forced to. Now that you need them, it is only fair that you should receive the disability benefits to which you are entitled and for which you have worked so hard.

It may come as no surprise that the federal government has teams of agents working to deny and limit the Social Security Disability benefits you receive for your physical impairment. As many as 80 percent of people with physical injuries like back pain, heart disease and fibromyalgia are denied the first time they apply.

When you are denied, you face three important choices:

  • You can give up
  • You can re-apply
  • You can appeal

Evaluating Your Options After a Claim Denial

Although the Social Security Administration (SSA) often suggests re-applying, this can be a bad idea. If you re-apply, your application just sits at the same level of process, and you never get any closer to a reviewing judge. At times like this, persistence, including an appeal if necessary, is critical to obtaining SSDI and/or SSI benefits.

While you may feel like giving up, working with experienced lawyer Andrew Reichardt can help improve your chances of getting the benefits you need. He will work hard to gather the necessary medical evidence and effectively present your case before the administrative law judge or other reviewing entity.

After a denial, whatever you do - don't give up. Call us to learn how we can help.

Long-Term Disability Benefits

If you are coping with a physical disability, you shouldn't have to worry about whether you will receive the benefits that you are rightfully owed by your employer's long-term disability insurance carrier.

Attorney Reichardt is devoted to helping people get the long-term disability benefits they deserve. He has helped thousands of men and women with physical impairments like severe back pain, chronic fatigue and multiple sclerosis. He continues to work hard to help our clients get their claims approved.
