Jennings SSDI/SSI Disabling Conditions Lawyer
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) have the same medical criteria. You must have a qualifying physical or mental impairment that prevents you from working for at least 12 months. Many people who are unable to get a job or sustain work because of a disabling condition are nevertheless denied benefits.
The Townsley Law Firm can help you turn your case around to get qualified for SSDI or SSI benefits. Our Social Security attorney has the experience and medical insights to get claims approved at the hearing level. Our Lake Charles law office represents claimants in Calcasieu Parish, southwest Louisiana and statewide.
SSDI/SSI Disabling Conditions Law Firm Serving Jennings, Lake Charles And Southwest Louisiana
Our lead Social Security Disability lawyer, Damon Beard, earned his undergraduate degree in microbiology and pre-med studies. He understands the Social Security Administration’s listed criteria for various impairments better than most attorneys, and that knowledge helps him obtain the proper medical records and tests to convince the hearing judge to award benefits.
The Townsley Law Firm has secured benefits for both physical conditions and mental impairments, including:
- Traumatic injuries such as broken bones
- Disorders of the spine (herniated disk, cervical fractures, etc.)
- Ischemic heart disease or chronic heart failure
- Chronic liver disease and kidney disease
- Complications of diabetes
- Inflammatory diseases (arthritis, fibromyalgia)
- Immune deficiencies (multiple sclerosis, AIDS/HIV)
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Depression or bipolar disorder
- Panic attacks and anxiety disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
This is not a complete list of the recognized impairments, but the SSA regularly rejects claims in all of these categories. If you do not strictly meet the requirements of a particular listing, you may still qualify based on your age (50 or older), residual functional capacity, education and job skills, past relevant work and the availability of suitable jobs in your vicinity.
We give a fighting chance to people who cannot hope to fight the Social Security Administration on their own. Call our Jennings SSDI/SSI disabling conditions attorney at 337-377-0584 or 800-216-6808 or contact us online.
