Know Your Options When A Disability Keeps You From Working
Physical work asks a lot from a person’s body. Disabilities can cause a person who works in a physically intensive job to no longer be able to work. This can be a terrifying thing, particularly if your individual situation makes retraining for a new type of job unfeasible.
If you can’t work because of a disability, you may be able to pursue Social Security Disability Insurance benefits or Supplemental Security Income benefits. However, the complexity of SSDI and SSI rules can make understanding what options and rights one has when applying for such benefits challenging. Our Minnesota firm, Christianson Law, can assist individuals with overcoming these challenges. We are very experienced in Social Security Disability law. We provide SSDI and SSI claims guidance and representation to people in Minneapolis, in St. Paul and throughout the surrounding region.
Navigating The SSDI And SSI Claims Process
The physical and psychological conditions that could be the basis of an SSDI/SSI claim include:
- Spine conditions
- Chronic pain
- Musculoskeletal conditions
- Multiple sclerosis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Heart conditions
- Lung conditions
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Liver diseases
- Kidney diseases
- Diabetes complications
Our lawyer and staff can help with all different phases of the claims process for SSDI or SSI benefits. We assist disabled individuals with applying for benefits. We help individuals who have had a benefits claim rejected appeal the denial in administrative law judge hearings. We provide guidance on and assistance with further steps to individuals whose appeals have been denied at the hearing level.
In all stages of a disability claim, being properly prepared is vital. This includes being prepared when it comes to evidence, such as medical and employment records. Our firm understands the major role such records can play in SSDI and SSI cases and can help you with the collection of such records.
We also understand how worried SSDI/SSI applicants can be about the cost of an attorney. Generally, we do not charge a fee to SSDI/SSI clients unless we are successful at getting them benefits.
