Qualifying Physical Disabilities

Disabilities conceptMassachusetts Attorneys Handling Social Security Disability Claims

Physical limitations such as a loss of limb or paralysis are fairly obvious disabilities that impact one’s ability to perform certain work-related tasks. Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are designed to provide financial assistance to those whose physical impairments after a serious accident prevent them from returning to work or from seeking alternative employment.

For more than 40 years, the law firm of Pulgini & Norton, LLP, has represented people throughout the Greater Boston area and elsewhere in Massachusetts seeking SSD benefits. We understand the complex laws and technical aspects governing SSD, and we use our in-depth knowledge and experience to help clients navigate the entire process.
