Have you been denied Social Security Disability payments within the last 60 days?  You need to act quickly as you only have 60 days to appeal the denial and preserve your claim.  Click here for a FREE social security disability claim review.

Do you suffer from:

  • A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities?
  • A record of such physical or mental impairment.?
  • Being regarded as having such an impairment?
  • Do you have a disability that prohibits you from working in any capacity - not just in the job you held previously?
  • Has your disability lasted - or is it expected to last - for at least one year?
  • Is the disability life threatening?

Here are several kinds of injuries that may lead to a disability:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Broken or Severed Limbs
  • Vision Injuries
  • Hearing / Ear Injuries
