The Social Security Disability Process Is Easier With An Attorney
Was your initial Social Security Disability Insurance/Supplemental Security Income (SSDI/SSI) application denied? Do not give up hope. The majority of SSDI/SSI applications are denied the first time. Many are denied again at the reconsideration stage. But when you work with an attorney, your chances of approval are greater. We know what type of medical evidence the Social Security Administration (SSA) wants to see.
At Strawn & Robertson, LLC, we help people in Alabama file and appeal SSDI/SSI claims. We will also take appeals from other lawyers to federal court. We are experienced trial attorneys who can take your case as far as it needs to go. Please speak with us to learn more today.
Benefits For Physical And Mental Conditions
SSDI/SSI benefits are available for disabling injuries and illnesses that make it impossible to work for at least 12 months. You must provide the right medical information to prove that your condition is disabling. This is where most applications fall short. It is difficult to know exactly what the SSA is looking for if you have never been through this process, but we have the experience to help you gather the information you need.
Hundreds of physical injuries and illnesses qualify for SSDI/SSI. The most common include:
- Back injuries
- Liver disease
- Heart disease and stroke
- Nerve disorders
You can also get benefits for certain mental conditions, including:
- Bipolar disorder
- Anxiety disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
Please talk with us if you do not see your illness or injury mentioned here; this is only a partial list.
The SSDI/SSI process has four stages: initial application, reconsideration, a hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ) and appeals. We can assist you with each stage as necessary.
