Coos Bay Social Security Disability Claims

There’s a reason that you pay Social Security taxes with each paycheck you receive; if you become sick or not able to work, Social Security benefits are designed to assist you.  These are your benefits.  You have paid for them, and you also deserve them! If you’ve found yourself not able to work as a result of faltering health or you’ve suffered an injury, you may be facing the difficult decision of filing for Social Security Disability benefits. The process of applying for your benefits can be a discouraging and difficult one. The law firm of Shlesinger & deVilleneuve has spent over four decades advocating for the legal rights of injured or disabled Oregonians. Every member of our social security team works together to handle nearly 1,000 Social Security Disability claims on an annual basis, so we understand the way the system works – inside and out!

Merely applying for benefits mandates the retrieval of a large amount of information which must be collected, confirmed, and reported before you’re approved. Despite having experts in your camp, the entire process of applying for and then actually receiving benefits is frequently very long and drawn-out. The term “everyone is denied the first time” is almost always accurate. At Shlesinger & deVilleneuve, we are able to offer you invaluable support and assistance from the start. We understand how to assemble and arrange the medical proof you need to facilitate your case efficiently through the system. You’ll find that countless form must be submitted, and we help to make sure this is accomplished properly and correctly. This one step might make the difference between getting approved or rejected. Our success record is outstanding, however, if, for some reason you’re rejected, we will immediately take action to submit for reconsideration and fight to the end for you!

At Shlesinger & deVilleneuve, our fees are paid contingent on us successfully getting you benefits. In other words, you are not required to pay us unless we win for you! When you contact our office, one of our team members will connect with you the same day and will be happy to book a free consultation. Making certain you are approved for benefits is very important to us. We will take the time to learn about you and your circumstances – you are our priority!
