Mr. Chermol is a Founding and Lead Partner at the disability law firm of Chermol & Fishman, LLC. He represents Social Security disability and SSI claimants across the United States both at the administrative level and in federal court.
Claimant became disabled after a career in the medical field. Due to arthritis in her knee, she could no longer perform the physical demands of her work. Her condition required multiple surgeries including a total knee replacement, but unfortunately, the knee replacement failed and a revision was needed. She did not have insurance and could not afford the additional treatment.
Social Security kept denying her case, but our firm would not give up. After multiple remands by the Appeals Council and Federal District Court, she was finally awarded benefits going back 9 years. The past due benefits were over $100,000. More importantly, she was finally able to have the additional surgery.
