Aaron, 25, broke his leg in three places and shattered his collarbone when he crashed his motorcycle on the freeway. His doctor advised him that he would have to go through several rounds of surgery, with periods of rest and recuperation in between. His doctor projected that it would be at least a year before he could return to his job at a mail delivery company.  A friend advised Aaron that he should apply for Social Security disability benefits since his company’s benefits would not support him during his recovery.  Aaron saw our Twitter posts and called us at Cervoni Disability Law to find out what information he would need to submit when he applied for benefits.

His cousin insisted that in his condition he would need assistance with the paperwork and that he should call Cervoni Disability Law to find out how they could help.

Michael had filed a case for Social Security Disability benefits that was denied once at the Initial Claim level and then again upon Reconsideration. He was suffering with bone cancer, and with the treatments involved, he found himself too sick to work and with depleted medical leave benefits. His brother Joseph urged him to appeal again to the Hearing level to appear before an administrative law judge. Because he had been denied twice, Michael did not believe that he could adequately represent himself before a judge, so he called us at Cervoni Disability Law, PLLC and asked for our help.

After months of physical therapy, his doctor told him that he would not be able to stand or walk without assistance and he would not be able to return to construction work. His co-worker Freddie suggested that he should apply for Social Security disability benefits. Since he was not yet at retirement age, he was not sure that he would be eligible. Freddie said he should call Cervoni Disability Law and get some information.
