Disabled From An Injury Or A Medical Condition?

If you are unable to work as you did before, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. A Social Security Disability (SSD) claim is not a lawsuit and benefits are not a form of charitable government assistance. Rather, SSD is a government-run program based on the Social Security taxes that you have paid for years if you have been gainfully employed.

Qualifying for SSDI benefits can be a long, complicated process, and appeals are commonly necessary. To maximize your chances of success, work with an experienced lawyer. At The Downer Law Firm, P.A., in Charlotte, North Carolina, we help people tap into all financial relief available to them after suffering injuries or becoming disabled. Our lawyers are ready to provide skilled and dedicated legal counsel throughout the process of applying for your benefits and, if necessary, appealing your claim.

Tap Into Your Rightful SSD Benefits If You Can No Longer Work

One requirement for receiving SSD benefits is to have one or more disabilities that will prevent you from working for a year or more. Even if you were recently injured at work or in a traffic accident or recently diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition, it is important to apply for benefits as soon as you or your doctors believe that your injuries or illness will result in disabilities lasting a year or longer.

If we represent you in a hearing after you are initially denied, we will prepare detailed, compelling documentation and bring in medical experts’ and vocational experts’ opinions. Our attorneys will also consider every angle of opportunity for success in your appeal. For example, we may demonstrate that two or more partial disabilities have left you unable to continue working.

If your claim is later approved on an appeal, your back benefits will be reimbursed to you dating from the time of your initial application. This is why a prompt application is important once you are disabled.
