Helping accident victims through the legal system

The aftermath of a serious car accident can be devastating for just about anyone. In addition to recovering from significant or even debilitating physical injuries, a victim may also have to try to figure out how to support herself financially, as she may no longer be able to work. Moreover, an accident also takes an emotional toll both on the victim and his family. To add to these issues, California's legal system can be hard to understand, particularly for those who are immigrants to this country and thus may not be as familiar with the way the law works.

There are some ways to cut disability wait times

Many residents of the Modesto area have probably heard stories about how long it takes for the Social Security Administration to finally award disability benefits to a Californian who needs them. Many deserving applicants get denied at the first stages of the process, and this means that they will have to wait months or even years for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. In the interim, the person will have to find other means of supporting himself or herself through a debilitating illness or injury, assuming of course that they live long enough to have a hearing.

Expedited approval may get you disability benefits faster

Dealing with a disabling condition may involve a lot of frustrating waiting. You sit in waiting rooms for your medical appointments. You wait in line for prescriptions. You wait for the results of your tests and lab work. If your condition prevents you from working, you can expect a long wait between applying for Social Security Disability and receiving word of your approval for benefits. If the Social Security Administration approves your application, you still must wait five months or longer before your payments begin.
