Do you suffer from herniated discs in your back? If so, it is likely that you are unable to work because it is the discs in the spine that allow movement in your backbone. Herniated discs also cause a great deal of pain and limit mobility. Regardless of how you sustained your herniated discs, if you are unable to work you are entitled to monetary compensation.
If you were injured on the job and this injury resulted in the herniated discs, then you will likely be able to collect money from Workman’s Comp, which your employer must have this type of insurance by law. The only requirement for Workman’s Comp is that you were injured on the job. You do not have to be permanently disabled to collect.
If the injury took place anywhere besides work, maybe you don’t even know where it happened or perhaps it was a gradual injury, you can be covered financially by SSDI or SSI, depending on your situation. However, the process for collecting Social Security is never easy or uncomplicated. This is your livelihood here. You have rights and entitlements so it is best to retain an experienced Social Security & Workman’s Comp lawyer to get what is rightfully yours.
A Los Angeles back injury attorney is more than a helpful ally during these types of claims. They will review all of the facts to make sure a claim exists and, if one does, they can help you with the application and filing process. All applications and forms are redundant and complex and have to be filled out completely and accurately.
If you have already applied for either benefit and were denied, an attorney can advise and guide you through the appeals process. Get the benefits you deserve and are entitled to. Call Disability Law Offices of Tony Adderley today at (323) 545-0132 to get your free consultation.
