Mobile SSD Lawyer Making the SSD Process Easier for those suffering Physical Injuries

If you’ve recently been involved in a major accident, be it the workplace, auto, or other, there’s a solid chance you aren’t able to work. If you can’t work, you probably can’t support your family or even yourself. If you’ve suffered a physical injury that’s made it impossible to work, there’s probably a scary feeling of wondering how you’re going to move forward financially. The good news is that this is what Social Security Disability benefits (SSD) are for, and there’s a solid chance you may qualify. A Social Security lawyer can help you submit an application that wins you the benefits you need, giving relief to you and your loved ones.

What About An Accident Involving My Limbs?

Broken arms and legs are the most frequent injuries after a major accident. If you’ve broken a limb, there’s a solid chance you won’t be able to do your job. This is especially true for individuals who work physical or labor intensive jobs. If your injury meets certain criteria, you may qualify for SSD benefits.

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you’ll need to prove that your broken leg isn’t healing properly and your mobility will be severely limited for at least 12 months. If you’ve broken a bone in your arm, wrist, or hand, you’ll need to show that the injury will require ongoing treatment and you won’t be able to work for at least 12 months. A free consultation with a Social Security attorney can be very helpful in showing you what kind of documentation you will need to prove your case.

Does My Back Injury Qualify Me for Social Security Disability?

Back and spine injuries are not just one of the most common injuries, they’re also one of the most dangerous. If you’ve suffered a terrible back injury, it’s very likely you are limited in the physical labor you’re able to do. That said, the Social Security Administration has strict requirements when it comes to qualifying for SSD for a back injury. The truth is, minor back pain is expected as we get into our 40’s and 50’s, therefore a lot of individuals apply for disability when they may be healthy enough to continue working. That said, it means you’ll need to prove the severity of your back injury. This will require an exam from your doctor, a signed report, and likely a copy of an MRI or X-Ray. Your Social Security attorney can help you put these documents together before you start your application so you have the best possible chance of getting approved for Social Security Disability benefits.

Does My Soft Tissue Injury Qualify for SSD?

Back and limb injuries are more commonly approved for SSD benefits than soft tissues injuries. That said, injuries to your nerves, tendons, and ligaments can be completely debilitating, depending on the trauma you’ve suffered. If you have a soft tissue issue that’s majorly restricted your range of motion and made it impossible to work, you may qualify for disability benefits. The key will be proving to the Social Security Administration that your injury will require you to undergo long-term medical treatment to fix your injury. Having a doctor on your side who can show sufficient reports will be imperative to getting approval for SSD benefits. An Alabama Social Security attorney will know exactly what the Social Security Administration requires in order to prove your case.

Is It Necessary to Retain a Social Security Attorney?

While it may be possible to navigate the world of Social Security Disability benefits on your own, the sad truth is that over two-thirds of the SSD applications are denied. If your application is denied, you may choose to appeal, which could lead to a complex and lengthy process. Much of this can be avoided with the help of an experienced attorney. A Social Security lawyer can help create the best pack for the best possible outcome. Call Walton Law LLC today at 251-319-5354 for a free one on one consultation.
