Help For Disabled Workers In Georgia

If a disability prevents you from working, you may have the right to seek Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. You may also be entitled to benefits from Georgia workers’ compensation if your injury or disability is work-related. Unfortunately, the process for obtaining these benefits can be frustrating.

A majority of Social Security applicants are initially denied benefits, and many injured workers are denied necessary medical treatment and other work comp benefits. Applicants are left to worry about how they will support their families and pay medical bills. Many injured workers find that their employer will look for ways to stop their benefits if their disability lingers. Hiring a lawyer to represent you can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case.

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.
