Suffering a sudden injury is a shocking situation. One is never prepared to deal with the aftermath of a serious accident, especially if it results in a disabling condition. Whether it is temporary or long-term, it can be challenging to adapt. A disabling injury can cause a person to significantly alter his or her life, even causing a person to no longer work. This can cause much devastation and financial pain.

The Social Security Administration has designed programs to assist those living with disabilities and unable to work. The inability to work can cause hardships, as it makes it impossible to meet one’s basic living needs. In these matters, those in Georgia and elsewhere are able to seek Social Security disability benefits.

At Murphy & Garner, LLC, our skilled attorneys understand that SSD applicants are apprehensive about applying for benefits. It is well known that initial applications are commonly denied; thus, causing applicants to endure the lengthy process of appealing the decision. Our law firm understands the ins and outs of the SSD benefit programs. By looking at the specific definition set out by the SSA, our law firm takes the time to ensure our clients prove eligibility. This means collecting any and all necessary medical documentation and evidence.

In matters where a client is denied benefits, we are prepared to help them through the reconsideration and appeals process. We take the time to explain these steps to our clients, allowing them to understand what needs to be done and how a favorable result could occur.
