If an injury has resulted in a disability and is preventing you from being able to work, filing for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits may be in your best interest. In order to be considered disabled by the Social Security Administration, a person must be unable to work due to a medical condition and must be unable to perform other work that might also be available. If you are disabled, it is important to ensure that you qualify by working with an experienced attorney.
At the law firm of Zebley, Mehalov & White, P.C., in Uniontown and in Mon Valley, Pennsylvania, our attorneys have years of experience helping people understand the complexities of the law and qualifying medical conditions in SSD. If your initial claim is denied, we can help you file an appeal and represent you at any possible administrative law judge (ALJ) hearing.
What Is A Qualifying Condition Pertaining To Social Security Disability Claims?
In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, your disability must prevent you from doing any work, not only the work that you were doing before you were injured. You may be unable to work due to the condition itself, a combination of conditions or the treatment that you are receiving to treat the condition.
There is a long list of impairments and conditions that the Social Security Administration considers disabling, including physical and mental disabilities. Our firm can work with your doctor, answer your questions and ensure that you understand what steps to take toward your legal goals.
