Social Security Disability
Have you ever been turned down for a Social Security Disability claim? Many people have. The Social Security Administration routinely denies initial claims for benefits under the Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) and supplemental security income (SSI) programs. With so many SSD claims denied on the first or second application, claimants often need an experienced, well-versed SSD claims attorney who can make the decisive difference at the administrative appeals stage of the process. That is why you should look no further than Young & Young.
Our attorneys are often successful in obtaining SSDI or SSI benefits at the administrative hearing stage after previous claims have been denied. Our understanding of what it takes to prove a Social Security disability case can help clients whose applications have been rejected for disabilities resulting from either traumatic injuries or chronic medical conditions, including the following:
- Severe back injury or neck problems involving herniated discs or related nerve damage
- Traumatic brain injury resulting in cognitive loss or significant functional deficits
- Chronic illnesses and their complications, including obstructive pulmonary disorder, diabetes or heart disease
- Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), fibromyalgia, or reflex sympathetic dystrophy, or other illnesses that are hard to diagnose and prove
SSDI benefits are available for people with recent work history whose physical or mental condition prevents them from working at their previous job or other occupation for at least a year. SSI benefits represent a safety net for people whose disability prevents them from working, but who lack the recent job experience that would qualify them for SSDI benefits. Our lawyers have the ability to explain eligibility criteria and claims procedures in clear terms. We can help clients understand the procedures and the most effective ways to present information from the earliest stages of the application
