Disability Fraud

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides benefits to people who are unable to work because of a disability. The program managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) helps keep millions of Americans out of poverty.

Because it is extremely difficult to qualify for these disability benefits, only a small percentage of total beneficiaries account for the cases of alleged fraud. Thus, these alleged offenders can be aggressively prosecuted, even though many people only made errors that were simply honest oversights or misremembered information.

Disability Fraud Defenses in Texas

Alleged offenders can be understandably concerned when they learn that they are being investigated for or charged with disability benefits fraud. However, a knowledgeable lawyer can often help determine the best way to proceed so people in these cases can achieve the most favorable outcomes.

An attorney can conduct an investigation to determine the facts of the case and possibly get charges thrown out if prosecutors have insufficient evidence that the alleged offender committed fraud. In other cases, the lawyer may be able to demonstrate that the alleged offender had no criminal intent and did not knowingly obtain disability benefits through fraud.

There can also be cases in which the legitimacy of an alleged offender’s disability may be called into question. The suggestion that a beneficiary is not “truly disabled” can be an especially painful claim for an alleged offender to hear, but an attorney will know the best ways to prove that his or her disability is very real and prevents the beneficiary from being able to work.
