A Brandon Social Security disability lawyer can help you understand your rights and fight for the benefits you need
The Social Security Administration provides benefits to support those who have become so severely injured or ill that they are no longer able to work in a capacity to support themselves. Some examples of qualifying disabilities include mental illness like schizophrenia or a physical injury that causes chronic and debilitating back pain.
Many believe that applying for benefits is an easy and straight-forward process. They think that they just have to fill out the application and provide the information requested. The truth is that applying for benefits is often much more complicated, and applications are routinely rejected even for minor technicalities.
A skilled Brandon Social Security disability lawyer from The Golden Law Group can help you understand what’s needed to properly apply for, or appeal for benefits. By working with one of our attorneys, you significantly increase your chances of success in getting disability benefits.
Why are Social Security disability benefits so often denied?
- Filling out the complicated application form incorrectly or leaving off information
- Making too much money to qualify (even if you now make significantly less than you did before your injury or illness)
- Failing to provide the proper documentation from medical professionals
- Failing to meet the guidelines for the severity of the disability
The Social Security Administration uses a complex set of criteria to determine whether a disability is severe enough to qualify for benefits. Some conditions qualify outright, such as becoming a paraplegic. However, with other conditions, you have to prove that the disability or illness has affected you so severely that you are unable to work.
There is a great deal of room for interpretation when classifying your disability, which is why it is so important to work with a Brandon Social Security disability lawyer from our firm. Our attorneys will work with medical professionals to review your case and provide testimony about the severity of your disability. With the right medical evidence on your side, you will get the benefits you need.
