What Is Social Security Disability Insurance?
When your injuries result in a qualified disability, Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can help you pay for medical care, rehabilitation and home expenses.
If you are injured in a car crash you may be entitled to collect additional financial support in addition to proceeds from any personal injury claims. If you are hurt on the job, you may be eligible to collect more than just workers’ compensation benefits.
At the Boston, Massachusetts, law offices of Dane Shulman Associates, LLC, we help clients throughout the commonwealth gain the most benefit from available sources of compensation following an injury accident. Our attorneys understand how your health impacts your entire life.

We Can Help You Seek SSD Benefits
Like many government benefits, application for Social Security Disability is a complex process fraught with details and requirements that can easily overwhelm you. If you have been injured or are no longer able to work due to a disability, it is vital that you seek experienced help from an attorney immediately. We can help you navigate the SSD system to collect benefits for:
- Physical injury in an accident at home, at work or on the road
- Mental conditions that impact getting or keeping a job
- Chronic, long-term illnesses
How much you can collect depends on many factors such as how long you have been working, your income during that time, and if you are disabled and dependent upon a deceased spouse or parent. Applying for benefits requires submitting proper paperwork, including employment and medical evidence, or ultimately appearing before an administrative law judge in a hearing.
Success at any step of the process is tricky. Representation by an attorney at our firm can greatly improve your chances. We know which forms to fill out and how. We know what proof is required and how to prevent mistakes by a clerk from jeopardizing your Social Security Disability claim.
Claim Denial? We Can Help.
Many people who apply for SSDI benefits have their initial claims denied. Do not give up hope. Those with legitimate disabilities are often turned down and must file an appeal to obtain their rightful benefits. The government has strict requirements, from how documents are prepared, to when they are submitted. We will review your case and help you gather proper evidence and determine the best strategy for presenting a stronger case.
