Applying the grid rules to help your case

A recent post on this blog discussed the Social Security Administration's use of grid rules in order to determine whether a New Jersey resident is disabled. Basically, the grid rules are a set of requirements that together work as a rubric for the Administration and Administrative Law Judges who must make an objective decision about whether a person is disabled or not.

Because the grid rules do not just factor in the nature and extent of an injury but also things like age and education, a New Jersey resident who is unable to work and needs to qualify for disability benefits will have to present several different types of evidence in order to achieve the person's goals. In other words, it is dangerous to assume that just because someone has a documented serious injury, the person will be able to obtain disability.

Our law office has for years been representing injured New Jersey residents who need some extra financial support because they cannot work. We are familiar with the Administration's grid rules, as well its other regulations and practices, and know how to apply those rules in order to get a good result for our clients. Specifically, we know what type of evidence the Social Security Administration is looking for when making a disability determination and, to the extent legally and ethically possible, we help our clients gather this information.

While we of course cannot promise that every case will end with a good result for our client, we will take all reasonable steps to make sure our clients can convince the Administration that the clients meet the established criteria for disability benefits.
