The attorneys at d’Oliveira & Associates recently obtained a significant award for a Massachusetts client whose case was brought before the Social Security Administration (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12394). The client (whose name is withheld for confidentiality purposes), who was laid off from her job several years ago because her disability made it so difficult to work, had previously applied for and been denied benefits by the Social Security Administration.
According to the complaint, the client has been unable to work and living with Osteoporosis, vision complications, and sleep and depression disorders for years, the client was undeterred by the Social Security Administration’s previous denial of benefits (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12394). Seeking the assistance of experienced Social Security Disability attorneys, the client has since received over $65,000 in retroactive benefits and will receive an additional $2,000 a month for the rest of her life (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12394). Additionally, because this client had been disabled for over two years, she has also become eligible for Medicare benefits. After contacting the law offices of d’Oliveira & Associates, Attorney Cara Gallucci was able to win her case and did not charge her a fee until she had received her back due benefits.
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira stated that “this is one of the largest back due benefits cases we have ever had. Attorney Gallucci and her staff worked very diligently and hard to get all the necessary medical records together in order to win this very nice award for this client.”
Applying for and receiving disability benefits from the Social Security Administration is a complex and time-consuming process. Even for those persons who do qualify for benefits and support, the obstacles in actually receiving the benefits can act as a deterrent to many. In fact, even for those who do take it upon themselves to apply for benefits, the Administration denies nearly 75% of all first-time applicants. The significant awards the client received in this case is a clear example of why it is so important to contact an experienced Social Security Disability attorney. Even though the Administration denied this client benefits previously, when her exact same case was presented to the Administration by the experienced attorneys at d’Oliveira & Associates, she received the $65,000 in retroactive and the $2,000 per month benefits she was entitled to.
