Obtaining Social Security Disability benefits requires more than just telling the Social Security Administration that you are disabled. It requires proving to the SSA that you suffer from an injury or medical condition that renders you unable to work for at least a year.
Although this seems like a simple enough thing to prove — especially if your injury or condition really is keeping you out of work — it can be a very complicated process and the SSA denies most applicants the first time they apply.
However, SSD benefits can be a crucial lifeline to people who are truly disabled, which is why you shouldn’t give up without speaking to an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer.
The experienced attorneys at our firm have helped numerous clients in Michigan apply for and obtain SSD benefits because of physical impairments and/or mental impairments. We know what the SSA is looking for in applications, and we know how to help you get the benefits you deserve.
These benefits are too important to give up on without a fight. The best thing to do is to meet with one of our attorneys who can help you complete your application as thoroughly as possible. But if you have already applied and were denied benefits, we can also help you file an appeal.
While it is not required to have an attorney representing you when you apply for SSD benefits or file an appeal in your case, it certainly makes your case stronger. Additionally, at our firm, we do not charge clients a fee unless they win benefits, which most of our clients do.
