The attorneys at d'Oliveira & Associates recently obtained an award for a Woonsocket client, whose case was brought before the Social Security Disability Administration (Woonsocket District Court Case: WN-12631). The attorneys were also able to help the client (whose name is withheld for confidentiality reasons) receive benefits and support for his child. According to the complaint, the client, who had spent over a decade employed as a repair technician, became unable to work after developing neck and spinal complications including degenerative disc disease and nerve damage that required multiple surgeries.
According to the complaint, the client had been previously denied benefits by the Social Security Disability Administration (Woonsocket District Court Case: WN-12631). With the help of d'Oliveira & Associates the client also receives over $23,300 in retroactive benefits with additional benefits of over $1,300 a month for the rest of his life. Additionally, as a father, the client will also receive nearly $15,000 in retroactive benefits and a monthly installment of nearly $700 for child support.
According to the complaint, after already becoming permanently disabled and having applied to and been denied Social Security Disability Benefits, the client contacted the law offices of d'Oliveira & Associates (Woonsocket District Court, Case Number: WN-12631). Attorney Cara Gallucci won his case and did not charge him a fee until he had received his back due benefits.
When a person becomes disabled and is thus unable to work, applying for Social Security Disability Benefits is done for multiple reasons. Not only will the benefits cover the person's salary and wages lost as a result of the disability, but often times, these the person has a family that depends on them. Therefore, becoming disabled puts an equal financial strain on loved ones, too. That is why the Social Security Administration also makes available payments and benefits to qualified persons' children. The Social Security Administration states that, on average, over 4.4 million children with a disabled parent received approximately $2.5 billion in support*. The benefits awarded in this case to both the disabled father and the child reflect this common, yet sometimes relatively unknown, support system that is available.
