If you are unable to work because of a disabling condition, you may be eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits. When a disability leaves you without the ability to provide for yourself and your family, these benefits give you a lifeline.
Sadly, approximately 60 percent of all claims are denied upon first application. Whether you have already been denied or are just beginning the process of applying, a Galveston Social Security disability attorney can help improve your chances of approval.
At the Law Offices Of M. Stanley Whitehead, we have extensive experience in helping in appeals and initial applications for SSDI benefits.
While every applicant’s circumstances are different, a few key elements are vital to almost every disability claim, including:
These are the foundation of any successful Social Security disability application, but it can be a difficult process for the inexperienced. The application forms from the Social Security Administration can be incomplete, misleading or just plain confusing. Our Galveston Social Security disability lawyers offer valuable experience in completing these tasks in accordance with SSA guidelines.
One of the most important parts of your application or appeal is having a medical professional who is involved in your case, and supportive in your petition for SSDI benefits. A Social Security disability lawyer in Galveston can work with you and your doctor to ensure that when your claim is reviewed, it shows the full scope of your disabling condition and why you should qualify for benefits.
The road to SSDI benefits can be lonely and intimidating for those who go through it alone. The good news is that you don’t have to. No matter where you are in the process, from just starting the application to appealing a denial, contact the experienced Galveston Social Security disability attorneys at the Law Offices Of M. Stanley Whitehead for assistance.
