We treat you and your well-being as a priority and with the utmost respect.

Getting Social Security Disability Can Be a Struggle

The unfortunate truth is the Social Security system can be a hassle to deal with and benefits can be difficult to obtain. Around 60% of initial applicants for Social Security Disability benefits have been turned down at the first attempt.

This is despite the fact many of those people were eligible to receive benefits at the time of their application.

Like any other disability application, approvals are processed within 90 days. If you were rejected, but later accepted on a reconsideration appeal, your benefits can be approved within six months. It can be a tenuous process; with your health and time with loved ones to consider, you shouldn’t be handling this process on your own.

If you feel you haven’t been treated with respect or don’t have intimate knowledge of the Social Security system, you need a qualified Jacksonville lawyer to see you through. Let Farah & Farah advocate for the benefits that can provide a better future for you and your family.

Getting Help for Your Case

The Social Security Disability process is complex and can be overwhelming.  An attorney can simplify and expedite the process and greatly improve the chances of your claim being approved.  Your attorney will:

  • Review all eligibility factors such as the type of injury or disability you have and whether you’ve worked in jobs covered by social security, among other things. If you have issues like a cardiovascular condition, respiratory illness, speech issues or serious back injuries, you should qualify for disability benefits.
  • Ensure that your application is complete when submitted. Believe it or not, an incomplete application is one of the biggest factors in Social Security disability claims are denied.
  • Collect the necessary medical evidence. Your SSI attorney will review your medical records, gather supportive opinion statements from your healthcare providers, and collect any missing tests that may be vital in winning your case.
  • File appeals on your behalf if necessary. If your case is unfairly denied, we will help you appeal the decision.  We understand the process and all time limits associated with it.
  • Be by your side in disability hearings. Often, disability claims must be won in a hearing.  Having an attorney who has been there before and knows what an administrative judge is looking for can be a great benefit in your case.
