Helping you through the SSD application and appeals process

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.

What are your rights after a SSD denial?

When life brings about a difficult situation, one likely has many questions. Whether its because of an accident or an illness, suffering from a disability can impact a person's life in many way. Not only must an individual adapt his or her life but one must also find ways to address the growing financial issues associated with this situation. A disability can mean the inability to work. And when that occurs, a disabled individual may apply for Social Security disability benefits. Unfortunately, many initial applications are denied, making it vital to explore potential appeal options.

How can workers address lost wages because of a disability?

It is not uncommon to suffer minor injuries and illnesses. We all get a cold from time to time, and we all suffer a stubbed toe or hurt limb from bumping into things. These minor injuries are almost expected in the home and work environment. However, they require little to no recovery time and likely do not impact a person's ability to work on a larger scale. On the other hand, a major illness or injury could significantly impact a person's ability to work, as this situation likely makes it difficult to care for him or herself in general. Thus, it is important to explore what options are available in matters where individuals are unable to work because of a serious illness or injury.

Helping recover SSD benefits

No Georgian expects to be impacted by a disability. Unfortunately, disabilities can be acquired later in life due to illness or injury.

This is where Social Security disability benefits can be very valuable, as they provide necessary benefits to help cover basic living needs.

This is where it could be extremely beneficial to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD).

How do you prove the inability to work for SSD benefits?

No matter one's age, living with a disability is challenging. While some individuals in Georgia and elsewhere are able to utilize accommodations and resources to help them live a normal life, others are unable to do so because of the severity of the disability and how the disability specifically impacts his or her life. Being unable to work can significantly impact the life of individuals, causing it to be necessary to seek Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
