A person who has an injury or illness which will prevent them from working for more than 12 months may be entitled to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. The Social Security Administration has numerous guidelines based upon an individual's age, education and work experiences which are considered by the Social Security Administration along with the individual's physical and mental restrictions to determine a person's eligibility for disability benefits. It is important in making a successful claim for benefits to have an attorney who understands your physical and mental problems and the Social Security regulations and who can work with your doctors to obtain medical evidence which will assist you in becoming qualified for disability benefits. The Social Security Administration will often obtain only medical treatment records and may not ask your doctors specific questions tailored to your case about the restrictions which your illness or injuries cause which affect your ability to be employed. Without such evidence, your chances of qualifying for disability benefits are substantially reduced.
Scott Hindman has assisted hundreds of claimants in obtaining disability benefits and have represented these claimants at hearings seeking disability benefits before the Office of Adjudications and Appeals. He will be able to work with your doctors and the Social Security Administration to increase your chance of qualifying for benefits and possibly reducing the time frame for qualifying for benefits.
