Social Security Disability

Often, people will know that they cannot work, but they have a difficult time explaining to the Social Security Administration (SSA) why they cannot work. Are you too weak? You cannot concentrate? You are in too much pain? Therefore, every Social Security Disability case is a bit like a puzzle, and a disability attorney must figure out a way to establish that you are unable to work.

Various pieces of information are valuable only when put together and presented to the SSA. For example, an attorney may argue that you may not be able to work because you cannot sleep and are too fatigued to concentrate on your job the next day. Or pain that you experience due to back problems may make it virtually impossible for you to work eight hours a day, five days a week.

Your case begins with thoroughly understanding your disabilities and symptoms, then completing your Social Security Disability application. If you have been denied when you hire Mark A. Di Carlo, the case begins by appealing the reason the Social Security Administration gave for denying your application.
