Help For Disabled Workers In Georgia

When disability or illness stops you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. In addition, you might be able to get benefits from Georgia workers’ compensation depending on whether you were injured or became disabled due to your work. The process of getting the benefits you deserve can be slow and frustrating, unfortunately.

Most people who apply for Social Security benefits are denied, at first. Likewise, many workers who are injured on the job are denied the workers’ compensation benefits they are owed to help pay for medical treatment and other expenses. The people who apply are left to worry about what they can do to provide for their loved ones and cover their expenses. Some employers are quite skillful at preventing their employees from obtaining proper disability benefits, particularly in cases where an injury or illness persists for a long time. By hiring a lawyer to protect your rights to proper benefits, you can change your situation for the better.

Helping Disabled Workers Get the Benefits They Deserve

At the Law Office of Ellene Welsh, we help clients obtain the workers’ compensation benefits, Social Security Disability payments and
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits they need. Practicing law since 1988, attorney Ellene Welsh aggressively stands up for clients with physical and mental disabilities that prohibit them from earning a living.

We assist clients throughout Georgia from our three office locations in Columbus, Douglasville and Atlanta.

A Georgia Law Firm Providing Personal Service

Attorneys from all over the nation can say they handle SSD and work comp claims in Georgia. However, because the application process can be stressful and intimidating, it helps to be able to walk into your attorney’s office and speak with someone face to face about your claim. That’s why we concentrate on serving individuals locally in Douglasville, throughout the Columbus metro area and elsewhere in West Georgia.

Being a local firm, we are able to offer personalized service to our clients. Throughout the process, we will represent you at hearings, keep in close contact with you and stay on top of every detail. Further, we know the doctors, clinics and other medical providers in the area, and are able to advise uninsured or financially distressed clients about available resources for free or reduced-cost health care treatment or prescription medications.

Vigorously Challenging Claim Denials

To file an initial claim, an applicant must apply in person at the local Social Security office. If your claim is denied, as so many are, you have the right to begin the appeals process. It is at this point, assistance of an experienced attorney is invaluable in order to ensure you have the proper documentation and to represent you at any hearings.
