Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability Attorneys in Florida

At MLG Injury Law – Accident Injury Attorneys, our Social Security Disability lawyers fully understand how devastating a denial can be when you are unable to work and are seeking benefits to cover your monthly expenses.

We help debilitated residents throughout the United States seek the Social Security Disability benefits they are entitled to, whether this is the first time they have sought assistance with the application process, or if they have already been denied benefits.

Many people are denied social security benefits initially because the filing process is complex, and the federal government is doing very little to ease the requirements, so millions of disabled Americans are left to fend for themselves financially after a denial.

Social Security Benefits

A Social Security Disability denial is not final.

We can help appeal your case, so you have a better chance of being approved for the benefits you are entitled to.

What is Social Security Disability and How Do I Apply?

Social Security Disability, or SSD, is federal government assistance designed to help ensure people with disabilities have the income they need to survive.

The U.S. Social Security Administration is responsible for supplying Americans who are suffering from temporary and permanent disabilities with multiple benefit options that allow those who qualify to receive monthly compensation, medical care, and other government assistance for themselves and their dependent family members.

Under U.S. law you may be entitled to receive monthly Social Security Disability benefits if you are unable to work because of a physical or mental disability.

How Do I Qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits?

Social Security Disability is a federal benefits program that requires applicants to have worked in jobs where they contributed to the Social Security fund during their employment.

Next, SSD applicants must have a medical condition that meets the federal agency’s strict definition of a disability.

Social Security pays only for total disability, not partial disability or for short-term disability.

Under the Social Security Administration rules, applicants must be:

  • Unable to do work they did before because of their medical condition
  • Unable to adjust to other work because of their medical condition
  • Suffering from a disability that is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death

The medical conditions these disabilities arise from may include:

  • Cancer
  • Congenital Disorders that Affect Multiple Body Systems
  • Cardiovascular System
  • Endocrine Disorders
  • Digestive System
  • Genitourinary Disorders
  • Immune System Disorders
  • Hematological Disorders
  • Mental Disorders
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Musculoskeletal System
  • Respiratory Disorders
  • Special Senses and Speech
  • Skin Disorders

In short, the Social Security Administration pays monthly benefits to people who are unable to work for a year or more because of a disability.

Our Florida personal injury lawyers represent clients in the following practice areas throughout the state:

Can I File for Social Security Disability Benefits Without an Attorney?

Filing for Social Security Disability benefits in the country can be quite difficult.

First, there is the challenge of applying to a federally funded program that is notorious for its bureaucracy and red tape.

This typically means if they have an opportunity to deny your claim, because you are missing a necessary form, or have not completed the application to their standards, they will.

Next, you must meet their disabling conditions and prove that you are below the necessary income threshold, which is often outlined in vague terms, so you can be easily rejected for not meeting the criteria.

If you are seeking Social Security Disability benefits, partner with our skilled SSD attorneys who will help ensure your paperwork, condition, and all other requirements are outlined to exceed their precise stipulations, so your chances of getting denied are minimized.

Can MLG Injury Law – Accident Injury Attorneys Help If I Have Already Been Denied SSD Benefits?

Yes. Our Social Security Disability lawyers know that the federal government may initially reject or deny more claims each year than they approve because the filing requirements have become increasingly rigorous.

With the help of our SSD attorneys, rejected applicants can file an appeal that disputes the logic the federal agency used to deny their application. What’s more, we may present new evidence that clearly outlines why our client’s application should not have been denied.

Partnering with a skilled Social Security Disability lawyer can significantly increase your chances of a successful appeal. Our skilled SSD attorneys will review the extensive laws and regulations that apply to your unique case and provide the compelling evidence necessary to pursue and secure a victory.
