Injury or Impairment Preventing You From Working? You May Be Entitled to SSDI Benefits
If you have suffered a serious injury or impairment that prevents you from obtaining “substantial gainful work,” you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits. However, the process of obtaining such benefits can be quite protracted and involved. The Social Security Administration has evolving guidelines that it uses to determine if an applicant’s medical condition is sufficiently disabling that he or she cannot return to work or find some other gainful employment. The vast majority of applicants have their claims denied at the initial hearing stage. A knowledgeable Social Security Disability attorney can be invaluable in documenting the condition, appealing the hearing decision, and bringing professional resources to bear to advance your claim and obtain the maximum benefits possible.
