Social Security Disability

Louisiana personal injury attorney fights for the disabled

If you suffer an injury or a disease prevents you from returning to work, Thomas Townsley can help you obtain government assistance.  Mr. Townsley is experienced with helping clients receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits that can enable you to receive payments for the rest of your life or throughout your long-term disability.  He thoroughly prepares your claim, understands Louisiana disability law and guides you through the complex Social Security system. 

Under Title II—Disability Insurance Benefits—there are three categories of individuals who can qualify for benefits on the basis of disability:

  • A disabled insured worker under 65
  • A person disabled since childhood (before age 22) who is a dependent of a deceased insured parent or parent entitled to Title II disability or retirement benefits
  • A disabled widow or widower age 50–60 if the deceased spouse was insured under Social Security

With you every step of the way

Mr. Townsley guides you through the legal process and appears with you at Social Security hearings before administrative law judges and federal courts to obtain the benefits to which you are entitled.

Mr. Townsley can help you with the following types of claims:

  • Retirement claims
  • Survivor benefits
  • Disability claims
  • Disabled child claims
  • Proof of age claims
  • Private disability insurance policies
  • Employer-provided disability insurance policies
  • Overpayments

The firm also handles your appeals

Mr. Townsley handles appeals for people who are denied Supplemental Security Income benefits (SSI) and SSD.  SSI benefits are paid to people who have not paid enough money into Social Security to be entitled to disability benefits, but can receive payments because they are disabled and are in financial need.
