Quincy Social Security Disability (SSDI) Lawyers
The Carney Law Firm is dedicated to the representation of Quincy area residents who have been wrongfully denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. When a disabled worker contacts our Quincy SSDI attorneys for representation, they are put in direct contact with one of our attorneys to discuss the merits of their claim. We do not pass files off to law clerks, paralegals or legal assistants to handle your claim, as many “high volume” law firms do.
Quincy is located in Norfolk County, with a population over 90,000. It is the 8th largest city in Massachusetts. Quincy has a long, rich history and is known as “the City of Presidents” for being the birthplace of former U.S. Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Quincy is located approximately 10 miles south of Boston. Many injured Quincy residents may receive medical treatment at one of the local Quincy medical providers, such as the Quincy Medical Center, or they may travel a short distance to one of Boston’s world renowned medical facilities. Our Boston office is located just a short distance from Quincy, easily accessible via the MBTA red line to South Station.
Nobody plans on being disabled from working which prevents one from earning a living. Disability from work can cause a severe financial impact on your family and force you to file for Social Security Disability benefits. Unfortunately, many claimants are denied benefits upon their initial application and are forced to wait a long period of time for their claim to make its way through the various stages of appeal, namely the request for reconsideration and administrative hearing before an administrative law judge.
A wide variety of injuries, illnesses and health conditions can prevent people from working and allow them to collect Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. Among the factors considered by the Social Security Administration when determining your eligibility for disability benefits include one’s age, education, past relevant work history, physical nature of your past relevant work history (i.e. sedentary, light, medium or heavy physical in nature) and the nature and extent of your physical or mental limitations.
If you live in the Quincy area, you can apply for SSDI benefits at your local Social Security Administration Office located at 1250 Hancock Street in Quincy, or apply online at www.ssa.gov/onlineservices. Your Social Security Disability Insurance claim hearing will be held at the Social Security Administration Office of Disability and Adjudication and Review’s Boston location, located at One Bowdoin Square.
If you have been denied Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, there is a strict deadline for which to file a request for reconsideration or a request for a hearing. Due to the recent downturn in the U.S. economy, and the subsequent increase in claims for disability benefits, the Social Security Administration was overwhelmed with claims for benefits. There simply was not enough government resources available to devote to processing the number of claims for benefits filed in recent years. This resulted in many legitimately disabled persons being denied SSDI benefits.
