Birmingham Social Security Disability Lawyer
Norris Injury Lawyers of Alabama
A portion of every working American’s paycheck goes into Social Security Disability (SSD) insurance. For most people, this goes completely unnoticed — until they get hurt, can no longer work, and are faced with depending on that insurance to support them and their families.
The alarming fact is that, despite paying for years into this system, the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies more than 60% of SSD applicants at the initial level. At Norris Injury Lawyers, we can help. We’ve been there for thousands of clients, and we will fight for you, too.
How Can a Lawyer Help?

The application process is complicated, lengthy, and confusing, and if you’ve been denied benefits already, the appeals process can be intimidating. You may have lost confidence in your ability to get the money you need.
Hiring an experienced lawyer in Alabama who has been through this before is the best thing you can do to help your case. We know what paperwork needs to be filled out, when it needs to be completed, where it needs to go, and what documents you need to have to show proof of your injuries, medical costs, wages, and dependants. Often, injured people will file their paperwork only to be denied or awarded less than they thought they deserved because something was missed or misfiled in the application process.
Get a Birmingham Social Security Disability attorney on your side from Norris Injury Lawyers, and we will help make sure you have the best chance possible to get the compensation you deserve and determine if you and your family are owed thousands of dollars for past benefits.
Do I Qualify for Benefits?
