Social Security DisabilityHandling SSD Claims and Appeals
If you are disabled for any reason and cannot work, cannot work at your previous job or cannot work full time, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. The SSD program is funded by your payroll taxes, so if you have been working for any length of time, you are covered by SSD. Applying for SSD benefits is easy; however, a large percentage of initial applications are denied. This makes it especially important to have a knowledgeable and experienced guide to help you appeal the decision.

At James B. Smith, Attorney at Law, our south Georgia lawyer helps clients whose SSD applications were denied. Our clients include people who developed disabling conditions such as arthritis or other chronic illnesses, individuals injured in car crashes, workers who suffered back injuries and degenerative disk disease and others who could no longer work because of their illness or injury. We are located in Townsend, which is near Darien, the county seat of McIntosh County.

You May Not Know
You have the right to appeal a negative decision, but many people do not do so because they are unaware of their rights. Moreover, many clients are surprised to learn that they do not need to pay an attorney until they win the case; the fees are deducted from the back benefits the individual was awarded based on the time he or she became disabled.

Another detail that people may not know is that, depending on their incomes, they might be eligible for both SSD and Social Security Income (SSI) benefits. Our attorney can advise you about this and about all other issues related to Social Security Disability. A hallmark of our law firm is the personal attention we offer, and we take the time to thoroughly discuss their options with all clients.
