Attorney Cara Gallucci, a social security disability lawyer for d’Oliveira & Associates, recently got a Pawtucket woman a combined award for her and her family of over $24,000, for her claim for Social Security Disability Benefits. She suffered from a head injury as well as chronic back and neck pain and was unable to return to work as a healthcare worker. She called the social security disability lawyers at d’Oliveira & Associates to help get her life back to normal.
Attorney Gallucci stated that “this woman has suffered for many years with the effects of an injury. She has worked tirelessly to restore her health, but was unable to recover enough to return to the work force. Her head injury caused many impairments, and I was very happy that we won her case without her having to go to a hearing before a judge.”
Through Gallucci and her staff’s thorough work, this client received her disability benefits without ever having to appear in front of a judge. Back and neck injuries, as well as concussions, are some of the most common disabilities that are recognized by the Social Security Administration. These injuries cause severe pain, which can make it physically difficult to perform manual work. They can also result in depression or anxiety, which further affects a person’s ability to work normally.
