Cara Gallucci, a lawyer at d’Oliveira & Associates, successfully obtained Social Security benefits for a 30 year old woman who was working at an office when she began experiencing severe headaches and could no longer work. The woman attempted to file for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits on her own but her claim was denied. She then contacted an experienced RI Social Security Lawyer for help. Attorney Cara Gallucci was able to obtain over $30,000 in past due SSD benefits and nearly $1,300 per month in future SSD payments for the woman.
Attorney Cara Gallucci said, “This case was unique, due to the claimant’s young age. She tried every possible remedy to alleviate the terrible pain she experienced, without success. This pain pervaded every aspect of her life, and clearly prevented her from any employment. The Judge requested that a doctor evaluate all the records and he was able to determine, very quickly, that this claimant could not return to any form of employment.”
Working with an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer could increase your chances of receiving benefits. Social Security Disability claims are often denied and it is important to correctly file them because mistakes will complicate and delay the process. A social security lawyer who has experience navigating the system, organizing medical records and working with doctors can make the process of obtaining benefits more efficient and successful.
