Buffalo, NY Social Security Disability Attorneys
A record of success in long-term disability for the Buffalo region since 1976
Disabling injuries or medical conditions can change your life in an instant. While recovering, you may be confronted with a disability that can leave you unable to work and earn an income. At Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman, LLP, we have represented residents of Buffalo and Western New York in Social Security Disability cases for more than 37 years. We represent our clients before the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, when necessary, we are prepared to go to federal court to obtain the benefits you deserve.
Turn To The SSD Lawyers at Pusatier, Sherman, Abbott & Sugarman
Although many applicants deserve Social Security benefits, more than half of all applicants for benefits are initially rejected by the SSA. If you have been rejected, you can turn to the Social Security legal team at Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman, LLP, where our track record of Social Security appeals speaks for itself. Since 1976, we have won more than 90 percent of our Social Security cases. We can help you get the payments you need so that your injury, illness or condition does not leave you in financial ruin.
Handing Some of The Most Difficult Disability Benefits Cases
If you have suffered an injury that is expected to last for more than a year, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits until you can get back on your feet. The attorneys at Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman, LLP in Buffalo, NY can help you demonstrate to the SSA that you meet the work and duration requirements necessary to receive benefits. We also help you with the paperwork for your initial application, cutting down on the time you must wait for a decision and reducing the chances you will be denied.
With those clients who have been denied benefits by a private long-term disability insurance carrier, we will assist you in exploring your options to obtain disability benefits through a private long-term disability plan.
Our Buffalo Social Security Disability attorneys can help you secure the benefits you need to transition to a new way of life after a disability sidelines you. We recognize that every disability claim is different — a teacher suffering from cancer will have different requirements than a manufacturing executive suffering from depression. We prepare each application and appeal individually, catered to your medical needs. If the disability is rare or unusual, we work with physicians and consult research materials to fully understand the condition and best represent you.
