Listen as Massachusetts disability attorney Patrick Hartwig explains how he helped a woman who had been hospitalized 8 times and twice denied Social Security Disability benefits before she met him.
Dayna was first hospitalized with abdominal pain at the age of 46, and he was then hospitalized 8 times over 95 days due to abdominal surgeries and related infections. However, Social Security denied his claim twice before we spoke. We then quickly filed his appeal requesting a hearing in front of a Social Security judge.
As we awaited the scheduling of that hearing, Dayna’s doctor provided a statement from his doctor indicating there was no way that Dayna could have worked during that period of time. We presented a timeline with a clear outline of each hospitalization at the hearing. The judge understood that Dayna could not have worked during this time, and his case was approved. He is now receiving Social Security Disability benefits. Watch the video to learn more.
