Experienced Tennessee Attorneys Helping Clients Nationally
There is a specific set of physical disabilities that the Social Security Administration (SSA) considers legitimate conditions that would allow an applicant to receive benefits.
While you may suffer from a qualifying disease or condition, this alone is not a guarantee of approved benefits. The SSA is more concerned with assessing the impact this condition will have on your daily life, especially your ability to work.
For example, someone who suffers from arthritis (a qualifying condition) may not receive benefits if the arthritis has little or no impact on his or her routine or ability to work.
Attorneys at the Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod & Baril PLLC, have experience handling SSDI claims for those suffering from a range of physical disabilities, including:
- Fibromyalgia and chronic pain
- Brain injuries
- Cardiovascular impairments such as recovery after a heart attack
- Respiratory impairments such as recovery after a lung transplant
An SSD lawyer at our firm can perform a complete case evaluation to determine whether you have a high likelihood of being approved. If you have more than one disability, you may base your evidence of eligibility on the combined effect of all impairments, even if they are partial impairments.
Find The Legal Guidance You Need
Without the proper guidance, an applicant – even those with a legitimate, diagnosed physical disability – may be denied benefits. Whether you live in Knoxville, elsewhere in Tennessee or in any other state, it’s essential to seek the assistance of an experienced SSDI lawyer at our firm who can guide you through your disability benefits application and appeals if necessary.
