If you suffer from a disabling disease or injury, and as a result you are unable to work on a consistent basis, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. The lawyers at Tillman & Associates in Atlanta have helped many hundreds of disabled persons to obtain disability benefits, many of them after lengthy periods of denial.
Atlanta Disability Application Attorneys
The key to success in obtaining disability benefits is to keep trying and to document your medical story so clearly that your disability cannot be discounted.
In truth, most SSD claims are denied at first. Many applicants take this denial at face value and stop asking. This is a serious mistake. Our experience as SSD lawyers is that the process is a long one, and that most approvals occur late in the process, not early.
Many of our clients come to us first with a workers' compensation claim, knowing that Tillman & Associates is one of the most respected and most effective workers' comp firms in Georgia, with 30 years of successful experience. Where appropriate, our attorneys work with disabled workers to apply for SSD benefits, and sometimes even Supplementary Security Income (SSI) as well.
Determining Your Disability Eligibility
Both workers' compensation and SSD are insurance programs. Workers' comp is easier to win approval for, and benefits can expire after a short time. Social Security Disability is more difficult to win approval for, often taking multiple attempts and appeals. If you are classified as permanently disabled from a catastrophic injury, your benefits may last for the rest of your life.
Obtaining disability benefits is a great challenge for many, particularly if they attempt it on their own. A better approach is to enlist the experience and knowledge of one of Georgia's premier SSD law firms. It won't happen overnight, but we are confident of a positive decision for you in time.
