When you’re hurt and can’t work due to a disability, it seems like the bills just add up. When you don’t have any way to pay those bills, it can seem like a nightmare. For years, you worked hard and paid into the system, and now that you need Social Security Disability benefits to help make ends meet, you’re stuck in a maze of red tape and denials. At Berg Injury Lawyers, we know the process to get approved for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits isn’t always clear, and we want to take the stress off your shoulders.
Each year, more than half of all initial applications for SSD benefits are denied. A California Social Security Disability lawyer may be able to help you get your benefits if your application has been denied. Our SSD benefits lawyers can appeal your claim. We know how the complicated system works, and we can help you accurately fill out and submit the right forms and evidence to have the best chance of getting your benefits.
Qualifying for Social Security Disability
If you are suffering from a disability and you can’t do the work you did before, can’t adjust to other work because of your medical conditions, and your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or result in death, you may be eligible for SSD benefits.
There are several conditions that may qualify you for SSD benefits, such as:
- Blindness or deafness
- Breathing problems
- Chronic heart disease
- Extreme psoriasis involving hands and feet
- HIV positive
- Immune system disorders
- Mental disorders
- Multiple sclerosis
- Neurological disorders
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- RSD / CRPS
- Seizures despite the use of medication
- Other severe medical conditions
Our California Social Security Disability lawyers can answer your questions to help you determine if you may be eligible for benefits.
