Social Security Disability
At the Law Office of John F. Marshall, our attorneys work to see that injured workers recover all compensation they are entitled to. If you have suffered a workplace injury, our lawyers will help you recover medical benefits, wage loss benefits, and partial-total disability benefits if you have a permanent disability as a result of a workplace accident or occupational disease.

Seriously injured workers should also consider applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and possibly disability retirement. These claims require different documentation than workers’ compensation claims, and the definitions of disability are different than under workers’ compensation law. A Social Security Disability claim for a young person is generally difficult to support and should be handled by an attorney with experience in both Social Security Disability law and New Jersey workers’ compensation law.
There also may be auxiliary Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits available for children and spouses of the injured worker, including Medicare. There is a waiting period before Social Security Disability benefits begin. It is important to begin the application process as soon as possible in order to receive benefits at the earliest opportunity.Supplemental Disability Insurance
Our lawyers also help our disabled clients with disability claims against employer-sponsored long-term disability insurance policies such as AFLAC and pension benefits. The total picture becomes very complex, and our attorneys will coordinate benefits from all sources to see that our clients get the maximum compensation possible.Contact a New Jersey Social Security Disability Lawyer
