TIME LIMITS TO KEEP IN MIND
Disability claims – VA and SSDI – each have unique time limits and rules that make it very important to speak with an attorney early. If you miss the deadline to appeal a denial, you’ll likely have to re-apply and lose your right to retroactive benefits. This could mean losing tens of thousands of dollars in potential compensation. As soon as you are denied, call our firm to discuss your options.
LET YOUR COMPENSATION BEGIN HERE
If you were injured while in the Armed Forces or you’ve developed a severe and chronic medical condition or injury that prevents you from working, let Jerome, Lindsay & Salmi, LLP help you appeal your disability denial. Like most of our injury-related services, we use a contingent fee for these cases, so you don’t owe us unless we succeed. Call us at (618) 205-9793 or contact us online to discuss your case. An initial consultation is provided at no-cost for VA disability and SSDI cases.
