Approval for Toll Collector

I represent a former toll collector who was injured when she was hit by a car at work. Despite submitting dozens of pages of treatment records, extensive diagnostic test reports, and disability reports from her neurologist, rheumatologist, two orthopedists, cardiologist, and internist, it still took over seven months to receive the approval. 

The Social Security Administration’s own statistics reveal the increasing delays for making any decisions, regardless of the severity of the disabling condition. Even in the most well delineated and supported cases, a claimant should not anticipate receiving a decision in less than half a year.
