If you’ve been injured or have a “medically determinable” physical or mental impairment that prevents you from working for more than one year, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Whether you qualify will depend on several factors, including the number of years you’ve worked and how recently you’ve worked.
Why do I need an attorney to handle my SSDI claim?
Unfortunately, even if you qualify for SSDI, there’s no guarantee you’ll receive benefits. The success of your claim depends on proper completion of paperwork, compelling testimony at your hearing and other factors. A simple paperwork error or lack of preparation for a hearing can slow your case and keep you from getting the money you need. In fact, 70% of first-time applications for Social Security disability are denied.
But our experienced attorneys can significantly increase the chances of getting your claim approved. They understand all the ins and outs of the complex Social Security Disability system and know exactly what’s required to get the benefits you’ve earned.
