Social Security Disability

The U.S. Social Security Disability Insurance system protects all workers against loss of earnings due to disability. Social Security disability claims are different from workers’ compensation claims, in that the cause of a worker's injury is irrelevant in a claim for Social Security disability benefits. The main issue is whether the injury prevents a person from being able to work, regardless of the cause of the injury.

To make a claim for Social Security Disability benefits, a disabled worker must meet certain requirements, including strict definitions relating to the severity of his or her injuries. Social Security disability requirements can be complicated and hard to understand, and sometimes claims can be denied. If a Social Security Disability applicant is denied, he or she can make an appeal. The counsel of a lawyer with experience in Social Security disability cases can greatly help with these kinds of claims.

Were you denied a Social Security disability claim? You are not alone - the vast majority of initial SSD claims are denied (roughly 70 percent). Many applicants give up in frustration. It's important to appeal your claim through the Social Security benefits appeals process. A Social Security disability attorney who thoroughly understands the rules and regulations may be able to help you get results.
