Not Sure If You’re Eligible for Social Security/SSI Disability?
If you are no longer able to work because of illness or injury, you’ve come to the right law firm. We have helped thousands of disabled people obtain the benefits they are entitled to under the Social Security and SSI Disability programs.
Under the Social Security Act, disability means the inability to engage in substantial work activity due to medical impairments, whether physical or emotional. The rules for proving disability are complex, and most people are denied benefits the first time they apply, even though they actually meet the legal standards for disability. Many of these people give up because they do not understand that they have appeal rights, and that they may be barred from reapplying in the future if they do not appeal.
Why Hire a Lawyer?
Whether you are starting a new application or appealing a denial, you need legal representation. Social Security regulations are complex, the process is difficult to navigate, and attorneys with experience are a must. You must present medical reports with clinical and laboratory findings establishing that you are unable to perform any work that exists in the national economy.
Because many doctors are unfamiliar with the legal standards, it is necessary to have an experienced attorney working with your medical providers in order to obtain all the required evidence. Social Security statistics show that claimants who hire attorneys are more likely to obtain disability benefits than those without representation. Dealing with Social Security can be intimidating, and you may be unsure about how to present your case without an attorney advocating for you.
