What is a Social SEcurity?

Social Security is a federally provided benefit available to all citizens who meet the criteria. It is a form of disability benefit meant to assist those individuals who are past retirement age or workers who have become injured and cannot return to work.

One thing that it is important to note is that if you apply for Social Security benefits, you automatically waive your right to sue your employer for any damages related to a personal injury. This holds true even if it is later proven that your employer was negligent.

This type of detail, vital to your claim yet unknown by most people, is why it is so important to work with an experienced attorney. Their help can be invaluable when it comes to applying for benefits and choosing what type of claim to file. Most specialized attorneys have spent years learning the details of the law and can use this knowledge to your benefit.

Frequently Asked Questions about Social Security Disability

Explore our FAQ to get the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions about social security disability claims.

What qualifies as a disability for Social Security benefits?

A qualifying disability is any medical condition that significantly limits your ability to perform basic work activities—and that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death. Our attorneys can help determine if your specific condition meets the SSA criteria.

How do I apply for Social Security Disability benefits?

Applying for disability benefits involves submitting the Disability Benefit Application and the Adult Disability Report, which can be filled out and submitted online or at your local Social Security office. Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys can assist you in gathering all necessary documentation and completing the application process accurately and efficiently.

What should I do if my application is denied?

It is not uncommon for initial applications to be denied. However, you have the right to appeal. Our firm excels in handling appeals, representing clients at reconsideration and hearing stages, and ensuring that all relevant medical evidence and testimonies are effectively presented.

How long does the process take to receive Social Security Disability benefits?

The processing time can vary significantly, typically ranging from a few months to over a year. Timeliness depends on the thoroughness of your application, the need for additional evidence, and the backlog of the SSA. Our team strives to expedite the process by ensuring that your application is complete and robust from the outset.

Can I afford legal representation for my disability case?
