If a disability prevents you from working, you may have the right to seek Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. You may also be entitled to benefits from Georgia workers' compensation if your injury or disability is work-related. Unfortunately, the process for obtaining these benefits can be frustrating.
A majority of Social Security applicants are initially denied benefits, and many injured workers are denied necessary medical treatment and other work comp benefits. Applicants are left to worry about how they will support their families and pay medical bills. Many injured workers find that their employer will look for ways to stop their benefits if their disability lingers. Hiring a lawyer to represent you can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.
Practicing law since 1988, Ellene Welsh and her support staff help injured workers in Douglasville and the West Georgia area obtain benefits from workers' compensation and Social Security Disability (SSD). She also helps people without a work history apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
