Social Security Disability

Tennessee Personal Injury Lawyer, Social Security Disability Attorney and Knoxville TN Social Security Income Lawyer

Social Security disability (SSD) benefits were designed to provide supplemental income to those whose physical or mental disabilities prevent or physically limit their ability to function at any type of gainful employment. Based on the dynamics of your impairment, as either temporary or permanent, your social security disability benefits could be offered on a temporary or permanent basis. These kinds of legal cases are generally extremely complicated due to the fact SSD procedures require significant amounts of legal work, a number of eligibility requirements, and several federal regulations. The experienced lawyers at The Law Offices of Ogle, Elrod and Baril, Pllc have worked on a a number of SSD cases and have assisted numerous injured and disabled clients obtain much-needed compensation.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability (SSD)?

There are several criteria applicants must meet, in order to be eligible to receive SSD. The first stage of qualifying for SSD depends entirely on the nature of your injury or illness. Proof of permanent disability, or a condition that has lasted, or is expected to last, more than one year is required. In addition, your physical condition must prevent you from performing the duties of your previous job and from finding a new line of work due to age, education, or impairment.

Since Social Security disability insurance is funded by the Social Security tax fund, applicants must have paid Social Security taxes through their wages for a sufficient amount of time, in order to be eligible to receive disability compensation. This means that a reasonably consistent work history prior to suffering the disabling injury or illness is required in order to qualify.  Known as work credits, your work history and tax payments play a large role in qualifying for SSD

Disability claims with the social security administration can involve long periods of waiting for decisions, only to find that a case has been denied for benefits. For this reason, it makes sense to seek the advice and assistance of an attorney who specializes in representing disability claims.

There are many different methods to locate an attorney or lawyer in Tennessee for your legal needs, one means that is sometimes helpful--and underutilized--is contacting your State's Bar Group. These organizations typically keep a statewide list of attorneys and their areas of practice (including bankruptcy law, divorce law, personal injury law, and traffic law)

Additionally, bar groups can help potential clients find legal representation for their needs through the use of a lawyer locater program.

To find the best qualified legal representation for your case---in addition to using the standard means such as searching directories, relying on good referrals, and searching online---this is sometimes a beneficial option.
