SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY

Call us today for a free consultation: 508-739-2000.

Most of us have been paying part of our wages to the Social Security Administration for all of our working lives. If you have become disabled and can no longer work to earn a living, you should be able to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. Yet, the application process is cumbersome and confusing, and many valid SSDI applications are rejected.
Do you need help completing your Social Security Disability Insurance benefits claim? Has your initial application been denied? Contact The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates today for a free initial consultation and case evaluation.

We have been helping people receive the Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits they deserve for 24 years. You can rely on our skills and experience to help you get the benefits you are entitled to receive whether you were disabled by an injury or by an illness.

Just because your initial application has been denied doesn't mean you cannot get SSDI benefits. We will represent you at a hearing before an administrative law judge to argue on your behalf. The SSDI process includes three administrative reviews in addition to a hearing before an administrative law judge. In addition, you can take your claim to federal court.

We have successfully helped disabled people at all levels of application and review. The founder of our firm, Attorney Dennis J. Ellis is well known for his ability to win SSDI benefits for clients.

To learn how we can help you, please contact The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation. You will pay us nothing unless we win SSDI benefits for you. Attorney's fees are set by the Social Security Administration, so it won't cost you any more to be represented by an experienced SSDI attorney with a track record of getting results for clients.

WORK AND CONSTRUCTION

Call us today for a free consultation: 508-739-2000.

Under Massachusetts law, workers injured on the job at a construction site, manufacturing facility or other place of business are required to seek compensation for medical care and lost earnings through the Massachusetts Bureau of Workers' Compensation. Unless you can prove gross and intentional negligence on the part of the employer, workers' comp is the only recourse for recovering money from your employer.
What many injured workers and families don't realize, though, is that an injured worker maintains the right to seek additional compensation from any third party that may be held liable for damages. Such third parties can include:
  • Manufacturers of defective or dangerous equipment
  • Property owner who failed to provide a save work environment
  • Negligent subcontractor working on the job site
  • Installation company who set up dangerous scaffolding, construction crane
  • Supervisors held liable for ignoring company policy and state safety regulations
The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates has earned recognition as one of central Massachusetts' preeminent litigation law firms serving plaintiffs seeking compensation from third parties in workplace injury and wrongful death claims. We apply decades of knowledge and experience in the area of state workers' compensation, product liability litigation and trial practice to form a tenacious and effective team to protect your rights. We are one of the most successful personal injury trial firms in Worcester, and have a record of helping clients obtain maximum compensation to supplement workers' compensation entitlements.
We have experience successfully representing injured workers in a full range of third-party workplace injury claims, including:
  • Construction site accidents, scaffolding and ladder falls, construction vehicle injuries
  • Building wall, roof and trench collapses
  • Forklift and construction crane accidents
  • Manufacturing plant injuries, conveyor line accidents

WORKER'S COMPENSATION

Call us today for a free consultation: 508-739-2000.

If you are injured at work and are disabled for six or more days, you are eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits, including payments for reasonable medical expenses and a portion of your weekly wage. However, obtaining the workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to receive is not always an easy task. Your claim may be rejected or your benefits may be discontinued. Whom can you turn to when you are too injured to work and without any income?
At The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates, we represent disabled workers who need experienced advocates to help navigate the complex system of workers' compensation law. We will explain all of the protections that workers' compensation provides, and fight the insurance companies to get you those protections. If you have been injured at work, please contact our law firm today for a free consultation and case evaluation.
We represent workers in a variety of workers' compensation-related circumstances, involving:
  • Workplace accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Accidents involving commercial drivers and truck drivers
  • Exposure to asbestos (asbestos diseases)
  • Accidents causing injuries to construction workers
  • Industrial and manufacturing accidents
  • Accidents causing injuries to service industry workers
  • Injuries not covered by workers' compensation (third-party lawsuits)
Further, we assist clients who have questions about lump sum payments, categories of lost wage benefits and other aspects of the workers' compensation process.

Massachusetts business owners are required to carry workers' compensation insurance for their employees. The insurance companies pay injured workers' medical bills directly to the care providers and also pay a portion of your average weekly wage. Because insurance companies want to keep their benefits payments as low as possible, they may deny paying valid claims or seek to discontinue payments before the injured worker is able to return to work.

That's where the The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates comes in. We fight for the rights of injured workers. We will guide you through the complex dispute resolution process so that you will receive the benefits you deserve whether you were disabled by a workplace accident or an occupational illness.

Contact The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates today for a free consultation. Your initial consultation is free of charge and you will pay no attorney's fees unless we recover compensation for you.
