Woman with Disability Finally Receives Benefits

Imagine being in debilitating pain. Every. Single. Day. That’s what happened to Sharon Collins* after she had a fall. Her injuries never fully healed. To make matters worse, the constant pain increased her anxiety and depression. Unable to work, she filed for disability benefits, but her claim was denied.

That’s when she turned to Inner City Law Center for help. 

Our legal teams filed her appeal, armed with evidence that Ms. Collins was indeed disabled. The judge awarded her $1,133 in monthly benefits, and a retroactive lump sum payment of $43,629!
