At Farmer & Morris Law, PLLC, we believe in client-focused legal care. When you come to us with your Social Security Disability claim, we will put you first and give your case the attention it deserves. Our aim is for you to access the benefits you qualify for, and we can do all the heavy lifting while you focus on your health and family.
Our legal team can help by:
- Documenting your medical history to demonstrate a qualifying condition
- Illustrating how your disability has impacted your life and ability to work
- Completing all the necessary paperwork
- Filing your claim and any other documentation in a timely manner
- Taking the necessary steps to file an appeal or request a hearing if your claim was denied
When you work with us, we will treat you like family. You should never feel like another case file on a desk. We will make every effort to keep you updated on the progress of your claim and answer any questions that you may have during the process.
According to the SSA, you must demonstrate that you suffer from one or more of the qualifying medical conditions to receive benefits:
- Chronic heart disease
- Autoimmune disorders
- Chronic liver disease
- Congenital disorders, including Down syndrome
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
Our legal team can work with your physician to establish your condition. Their medical prognosis will prove invaluable to this end, which is why it is so important to see a doctor and follow through with your prescribed treatment. Even if you are already receiving Social Security benefits, a failure to follow through with your medical care may result in a cease of benefits.
Protect your claim by prioritizing your medical treatment. Make sure you make your doctor’s appointments and report any symptoms to your doctor so that they can adjust your treatment as needed.
If you received a denial of benefits from the SSA, know that you are not alone and that this is not the end of the line. You have the right to appeal a decision, and our legal team can help you.
Appealing a denial is a process in and of itself, though. It requires additional paperwork, hearings, and other steps. We can handle it entirely for you by taking the following steps:
- Request reconsideration from an administrator who has not viewed your case before
- Request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ)
- Request an Appeals Council review of your case to see if it will issue a new decision
- Submit your case to Federal Court
You may not have to undergo every one of these steps, but if you do, we will have your back. We want to fight for the benefits that you deserve so that you can access the treatment you need and move forward with your life.
