Helping Injured Clients
Seek the Benefits They Need
If you are suffering from a physical or mental disability that prevents you from working, you may be eligible for benefits under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or SSD) program. These benefits are paid by the Social Security Administration to disabled workers even for non-job-related injuries.

From the initial application all the way to appeals, we are here for you at every step. Our attorneys can take care of all the details, including gathering the necessary medical records, reports, and preparing clients for hearings. We do everything possible to make sure our clients are able to receive the benefits they need.
Eligibility for SSD
Eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits:
You must have accumulated enough work credits (paid into the Social Security system)
You must have a severe impairment or disability that interferes with your ability to work
Your disability must be expected to last for more than a year
You do not need to be retirement age to be eligible. In some cases, you may be able to receive SSD benefits in addition to other disability benefits. Talk to an attorney at our law firm to learn more about maximizing all of your benefits.
Does My Disability Qualify?
SSD benefits are available for many conditions, including back injuries, brain injuries, PTSD, cancer, and other qualifying conditions. When awarding benefits, the Social Security Administration refers to the Blue Book, which contains a long list of eligible physical and mental disabilities.
Call to Learn More About Applying for Benefits
There are strict time limits for filing for disability benefits. We recommend that you get started as soon as possible so you do not lose your eligibility. Our SSD lawyers can explain your eligibility and advise you on how to obtain the benefits you need.
