Attleboro Attorneys Win Social Security Disability Claim for Attleboro Woman Awarded Over $25,000 In Back Due Benefits
Date:3/17/2013

(PRWEB) March 17, 2013

The attorneys at d’Oliveira & Associates recently obtained a significant award for a Massachusetts client whose case was brought before the Social Security Administration (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12607). The client (whose name is withheld for confidentiality purposes) was laid off from her more recent job because of her suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. According to the complaint, after working for years in assisted living establishments, her condition continued to worsen until she was unable to work; the client applied for Social Security Benefits, but was denied.

After seeking the assistance of experienced Social Security Disability attorneys, the client has since received over $25,000 in retroactive benefits and will not receive an additional $1,300 per month for the rest of her life (Attleboro, MA District Court, Case Number: AT-12607). According to the complaint, although she had previously been denied benefits, after contacting the law offices of d’Oliveira & Associates, Attorney Cara Gallucci was able to win her case and did not charge her a fee until she had received her back due benefits.

Rheumatoid Arthritis, as defined by the Mayo Clinic, is a chronic disease that consists of worsening inflammation of the joints and tissues*. Although it develops over time, when left untreated, rheumatoid arthritis causes permanent damage in the tissues and joints and often prevents those suffering from it from being able to use their hands, walk, or even stand. Although there is no cure from the disease, treatment options are available to slow or alleviate the disabling symptoms.

Because of its disabling effect, those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis do qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. The irony and difficult in doing this is that, although the Social Security Administration requires applicants to have been totally disabled and unable to work for a certain amount of time before they qualify for benefits**, it is unfair to require an applicant to wait for this incurable chronic disease to fully manifest itself and disable them before they can apply. This process is additionally difficult when an individual attempts the application process on their own. Because the Social Security Administration denies approximately 75% of all first-time applicants***, it is extremely important to overcome the application obstacles with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney who understands the complex process and can help you get the benefits applicants deserve.

If you or someone you know is disabled and cannot work, the attorneys at d'Oliveira & Associates want you to know that you may qualify for Federal Social Security Disability payments and benefits. d’Oliveira & Associates is a Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts law firm that focuses on disability and personal injury claims, including auto accidents, slip and falls, dog bites as well as social security disability cases. The firm also works with some of the leading attorneys in the United States for dangerous drug, defective medical product and medical malpractice cases.
