While the Social Security Administration Judges ("ALJ") have large case loads and some ABRAMS LANDAU clients experience long waits for a Hearing, when we do finally win their disability claims, the victory is especially sweet. Herndon, Reston and Leesburg disability lawyer Doug Landau received just such an opinion this week on behalf of a disabled Centreville Virginia woman. The claimant had the following severe impairments:
- multiple sclerosis ("MS"),
- degenerative disc disease,
- fatigue and pain
The ALJ agreed with Landau’s brief that "these impairments cause more than minimal functional limitations on the claimant’s ability to perform basic work activities." The claimant will get a lump sum check of over $20,000 and monthly checks of $1,392 as well as medical coverage. If this ABRAMS LANDAU client lives her normal life expectancy, it is anticipated that she will be paid over $467,812 ! Doug Landau’s fee for winning this case ? $6,000, and the firm’s costs were under $1,000.
Social Security Disability fees for claimant’s lawyers are contingent AND capped. And, when compared to the benefits produced, may be one of the last great bargains.
