Social Security Disability

We'll help you get the benefits you need to pay the bills when you can't work

If you're living with a serious disability - perhaps from a car accident or illness - it can often be impossible to keep working. You may be forced to retire before reaching age 65. Under those circumstances, you should qualify for government benefits in the form of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

However, qualifying for SSDI can be exceptionally difficult, with as many as 4 out of 5 applicants denied on their initial application. Due to the recent economic recession, federal debt and the present age of the Baby Boom generation, these benefits are simply harder to obtain. In order to get what you need to carry on, you need an experienced attorney on your side.

Getting you through the appeal process

If you have been paying into SSDI through wage deductions and find yourself injured in such a way that you are unable to return to work for 12 months, you deserve a fair hearing. After the initial denial, you must take a series of steps to get your case reconsidered. You must act promptly, before the appeal process closes. You need help from the Law Offices of James Morris.

Even if your initial claim was denied, we may be able to help. You can try to appeal your denied claim on your own, but a lawyer who thoroughly knows the system and understands how to prepare for a hearing and stick to deadlines may be able to increase your chances of winning an appeal. The appeals process can be frustrating, and you may feel like giving up - but we'll support you every step of the way.

In these difficult economic times, it is more important than ever for disabled people to get the benefits they need to live. Contact our offices today to schedule your free case evaluation. Call (800) 477-9044.
