You can fight for the Social Security Disability you deserve

When you want to seek out Social Security Disability (SSD), the Social Security Administration (SSA) needs to determine if you qualify as disabled. While you may physically or mentally present as disabled in your everyday life, it's important that you show your disability through the correct documentation when submitting your application.

One of the first things the SSA asks is if you are working. If you can work and provide for yourself, it's unlikely that the SSA will grant your request for SSD. If you can work but on a limited scope, you may still qualify in some circumstances.

Another thing the SSA will consider is how severe your condition is. To make a claim, your condition should be bad enough that it interferes with your ability to work. For example, if you have an amputation, it would significantly affect your ability to stand for long hours.

One other thing that the SSA looks at is your ability to do work that you did prior to your injury. For example, if you were working on a factory line using your arms but now have paralysis in one arm, it's unlikely you could continue to perform the same duties. The SSA will also consider if you can do different jobs. If you can adjust to a different position, your claim may be denied.

Your attorney can help you submit the correct documents to the SSA to have your claim reviewed. If you are denied, you have a right to an appeal to fight for the compensation you deserve for your injuries. Our website has more information.
