Why Do You Need An Attorney?
When applying for Social Security disability benefits, having an experienced Chicago social security attorney on your side can be invaluable. Applicants who choose to retain counsel have a much higher rate of success than applicants who choose to handle their disability claim alone and in the vast majority of cases you don't have to pay any attorney fees unless you are awarded benefits.
Applying for Social Security disability benefits goes far beyond simply filling out a few forms. Applicants who desire to be successful must take the time to thoroughly and accurately complete each portion of the application. This includes providing sufficient documentation to supplement their disability claim. If you fail to satisfy the standards set by the Social Security Administration, then your application for disability benefits will be denied even if you are entitled to benefits under the law.
This is why it is vital that you have an attorney on your side that has a clear, thorough knowledge of the disability application process. At Daley Disability Law, our experienced Chicago social security lawyers have assisted clients during every stage of the disability claims process from the initial application to the subsequent appeal. Our clients can be confident that they will have skilled legal advocate fighting on their behalf.

Railroad Disability Benefits
If you are currently a railroad worker or were a railroad worker, you could potentially qualify for receiving benefits from the United States Railroad Retirement Board’s disability benefits program. It’s important to note that your injury does not need to be a result of something that happened at work, but your disability does have to prevent you from continuing to work. Railroad disability benefits are similar to Social Security benefits and are regulated by similar laws. Retaining a Chicago railroad disability lawyer can help you navigate the maze of applications and achieve success with your first claim.
