The attorneys at d'Oliveira & Associates recently obtained an award for a Cranston woman whose case was brought before the Social Security Disability Administration. (Case: CR-21666) The woman (whose name it withheld due to attorney-client privilege) had worked in customer service and as a receptionist at a financial advisory firm until she was laid off in 2008. She also suffered from Osteoporosis for several years, had also undergone several surgical procedures which included having numerous stents and a heart monitor installed since 2008. However, because the firm won her case, beginning now in October 2012, she will receive just under $12,500 in retroactive benefits and receive over $1,100 per month for the rest of her life, along with an annual cost of living increase.

Earlier this year, after being denied the Social Security Disability benefits she applied for online several months before, the woman contacted the law offices of d'Oliveira & Associates, specifically Attorney Laura Cameron, who is a managing attorney for the firm and who won her case. The firm does not charge a fee until the client receives their back due benefits.

Attorney Cameron stated “I was happy to see justice done here as I felt this woman was unable to work and deserved to get these benefits.”

Applying for and being granted Social Security Benefits is a complex and time-consuming process. The fact that this particular deserving client applied for the benefits by herself online and was denied is, unfortunately, a common occurrence. Nearly 75% of all first-time applicants who do qualify for the benefits are denied by the government. Although the task of approaching the government and trying to get benefits may seem potentially unsuccessful and difficult to disabled individuals, an experienced social security disability lawyer that knows that system and procedure can efficiently navigate the process and ensure that these people are not left on their own to fight for the benefits they 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.
