Social Security Disability
Helping You Through The Social Security Disability Process
If a physical injury, mental illness or combination of factors is preventing you from working, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. To qualify for SSD benefits you must:
- Have a disability that has lasted or is expected to last 12 months or more
- Have a disability that will keep you from doing your past job
- Not be gainfully employed
- Have paid into Social Security for long enough and in large enough dollar amounts
Obtaining SSD is a complicated process and, in most cases, should not be attempted alone. Instead, you need a lawyer who has experience with the process and procedures associated with this legal area.
Based in Memphis, Tennessee, The Gold Law Firm offers professional Social Security Disability representation. Whether you are thinking of applying or have been denied benefits, we can help. Our attorneys understand the ins and outs of the application process as well as how to successfully navigate claims. We can help you through the initial application process as well as with obtaining medical records and other information pertinent to your case. We will work diligently to get statements from doctors, former employers, family members and anyone who sees your struggles on a regular basis to strengthen your claim.
Denied Disability Benefits In Shelby County, Tennessee
If you have been denied SSD benefits at any phase, it does not automatically make you ineligible. Claims are often denied due to small details, such as an incomplete application or inadequate medical documentation. Other times, it may be because statements from medical providers were not convincing enough. In these situations, you need a strong advocate who can explain why you are unable to work and need these benefits.
Our Memphis Social Security Disability attorneys know how to present SSD cases eloquently and persuasively during the appeals process as well as to the judge at your hearing. We keep our caseloads small to dedicate proper time and attention to your case. Our goal is to be your mouthpiece at the hearing, and to help you obtain a positive outcome by having your claim approved.
