Alabama Social Security Disability Lawyers
A portion of every working American’s paycheck goes into Social Security Disability (SSD) insurance. For most people, this goes unnoticed until they get hurt or sick, can’t go back to work, and need that money to support their families.
Despite Americans paying for years into this system, the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies more than 60 percent of SSD applicants at the initial level. At Norris Injury Lawyers, we can help if your claim is denied. We’ve been there for thousands of clients in this situation, and we will fight for you, too.
How Can a Lawyer Help?
The application process to receive SSD benefits 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 is familiar with the SSA’s procedures 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 dependents.
It’s common for applicants to file their paperwork only to be denied or awarded less money than they deserve because something was missed or misfiled in their application process.
An Alabama Social Security Disability lawyer from Norris Injury Lawyers can help make sure you have the best possible chance of getting the compensation you deserve and even help determine if you are owed thousands of dollars for past benefits. And with our No Fee Guarantee®, you won’t pay us anything unless we get money for you.
