Bradenton Social Security Disability Attorneys Provide the Legal Resources and Compassionate Support You Need to Overcome Even the Most Daunting Challenges

Successfully guiding hundreds of individuals through the Social Security Disability application and approval process from start to finish

With thousands of claims submitted each year, the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) disability benefits process often takes several months or even longer before a claimant begins receiving payments. To ensure that your application is complete and processed as soon as possible, it is important to provide all necessary information and evidence to support your case. Proving that you suffered a disabling injury and are no longer able to work is vital to the success of your claim. The Bradenton disability attorneys at The Golden Law Group help clients successfully apply for, and receive, the Social Security benefits they need and deserve.

How to determine if you’ve suffered a disabling injury that meets the SSA’s definition of disability

The Social Security definition of disability is strict and specific to this particular program. To be considered disabled under the SSA, you must:

  • Be unable to work as did prior to your injury

  • Be incapable of adjusting to another type of work due to your disability and

  • Have a disability that has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or lead to death

The SSA considers many factors when determining your Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) eligibility. There are many different mental and physical medical conditions that prevent individuals from returning to work. These impairments may involve injury, illness or chronic pain and include, but are not limited to:

  • Back and neck issues

  • Complications from diabetes

  • Psychiatric issues

  • Cardiovascular problems

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Cancer

Serious medical conditions such as mental illness and cancer affect people of all ages. Recently, our firm has seen several cases where a claimant suffers from fibromyalgia. This type of condition is often particularly difficult to argue on an application. Though symptoms often mimic arthritis, there is no objective medical evidence or testing available to prove its existence. Our disability attorneys work hard to gather as much evidence and testimony as possible to support and prove your claims.

Additional medical treatment may be required to support and prove your disability claims

Proving the severity of your disability is not always clear cut. Many individuals who cannot afford medical attention often go untreated. While this is most obviously harmful to your health, it is also detrimental to your SSD/SSI application. A lack of treatment translates to a lack of evidence that is needed to support your claim.

The SSA may arrange for you to undergo a consultative examination. However, these doctors are not always sympathetic to your case. At the Golden Law Group, our Social Security benefits attorneys provide you with alternative care options. These may include county aid programs and free clinics.
