Workers' Compensation & Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyer
A primary concern after a serious injury or illness is receiving quality medical care. Once the medical bills start rolling in, the loss of income can become an overwhelming financial burden. Whether you have been injured in a workplace accident or are dealing with a disabling medical condition, you may be entitled to benefits from the state or federal government. Because such benefits are not guaranteed, it is crucial to work with an experienced workers’ compensation and disability benefits attorney.
If you or a loved one is seeking workers’ compensation or disability benefits, we will provide you with powerful representation and caring, personal service. As military veterans, we know that navigating government bureaucracy and dealing with insurance companies can be intimidating. When you become our client, one of our attorneys will personally handle your case, fighting for the benefits you need and deserve.
Angel Torres is a Social Security Disability and SSI Benefits Attorney and has a well-earned reputation for being a dedicated advocate of the disabled.
Angel Torres profoundly understands the challenges disabled individuals face navigating the Social Security system — nearly two-thirds of initial claims are denied. Angel works closely with our clients through all phases of the disability benefits claims process, from submitting the initial application to disability appeals and hearing.
Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
We have a proven history of fighting back against employers and insurance companies that attempt to deny claims or offer low settlements.
Angel Torres is not only a knowledgeable lawyer but a compassionate person who will stand by you every step of the way.
All worker’s compensation cases are handled on a contingency basis. This means that you will not pay any attorneys’ fees until we obtain benefits for you. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner we can start working on your claim.
Angel Torres believes that all workers in the state, including members of our immigrant communities, are entitled to a safe working environment. Nonetheless, thousands of workers are injured on the job each year. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry, 173,267 workplace injuries were reported in 2018.
While many of these injuries were minor sprains and strains, workers can sustain serious injuries from:
Falls from heights at construction sites (e.g. ladders, scaffolding, roofs), and slips caused by wet or damaged floors in a grocery store or icy parking lots at office buildings, can lead to serious injuries.
Work that requires bending and lifting or carrying and moving heavy items (e.g. furniture, tools, construction material) often leads to serious back, neck, arm and shoulder injuries.
Vehicles and equipment, such as forklifts, can rollover or hit workers.
Exposed wiring, dangerous chemicals, or fires, burns and explosions at a variety of worksites can cause catastrophic injuries and fatalities.
Social Security Disability & SSI Benefits Attorney
Many individuals take pride in earning a living, supporting themselves, and providing for their families. Not being able to do so because of a disabling medical condition is a struggle, both financially and emotionally. Although disability benefits are available through Social Security Administration programs, obtaining these vital public benefits can be complicated and confusing.
Angel Torres is a premier disability benefits lawyer serving disabled individuals and their families in Pennsylvania. Whether you are seeking benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs, he can help.
Angel understands the financial challenges you are facing, which is why you pay no lawyer’s fees unless we recover benefits for you. All Social Security Disability/SSI claims are handled on a contingency basis.
If you are disabled and unable to work, he will offer you trustworthy advice, emotional support and the personal attention you deserve. Because a successful disability benefits claim depends on submitting a substantial amount of medical information, he will work closely with your doctor to compile all the medical evidence that supports your claim. If your claim is denied, he will guide you through the appeals process. Angel is also bilingual – If you are a Spanish speaker and your lawyer isn’t, then you have the wrong lawyer. It is critical that you communicate with your lawyer in your own language.
