The attorneys at d'Oliveira & Associates recently obtained a significant award for a Taunton client whose case was brought before the Social Security Administration (Taunton, MA District Court, Case Number TN-12835). According to the complaint, the client (whose name is withheld for confidentiality purposes) had become unable to work after a cancer diagnosis required surgery and related treatments. Although successful, the treatment allegedly resulted in conditions such as continued pain in both of his hands and feet, neuropathy, and exhaustion (Taunton, MA District Court, Case Number TN-12835). Unable to return to work, the client applied to the Social Security Administration for disability support but was subsequently denied as stated in the complaint.
According to the complaint, the client sought the assistance of experienced Social Security Disability attorneys in order to re-apply for benefits and has since received nearly $25,000 in retroactive benefits and will receive an additional $1,770 a month in support (Taunton, MA District Court, Case Number TN-12835). After contacting the law offices of d'Oliveira & Associates, Attorney Cara Gallucci was able to win his case and did not charge him a fee until he had received his back due benefits.
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira stated that “Attorney Cara Gallucci and her staff did an excellent job in winning this case and getting such a nice award for this Taunton man. It is heartbreaking to see someone fight cancer as it is such an awful disease. It is unfortunate that this case took as long as it did for Cara to win this case as the Government should put people, who are clearly disabled, on the SSD benefits they paid for much sooner.”
