Nashville Social Security Disability Lawyer
If a mental or physical disability has prevented you from working, understandably you may feel trapped not knowing how to make ends meet. A financial lifeline may be available through the Social Security Administration. Individuals with qualifying disabilities who have been in the workforce for at least 10 years are eligible to receive Social Security Disability (SSD/SSDI) benefits. Unfortunately, securing the benefits you need can be a long road. Contact our Nashville Social Security Disability lawyers for more information.

Helping You Apply for Disability Benefits in Tennessee
As a first step, you need to complete an application and submit medical documentation to the Social Security Administration identifying the extent of your mental or physical disability. Many lawyers do not offer services to help clients apply for SSD/SSDI benefits. Unfortunately, many applications lack the medical evidence to fully document how a medical condition has affected someone’s ability to work. This leads to many claims being denied initially.
We are committed to helping you avoid this. Our lawyers can work with you from the onset to make sure the scope of your impairment is fully identified. However, even valid claims are often denied. If your claim was denied, our fight is not over. We will request a hearing before an administrative law judge to plead your case.
Appealing Denied Claims Before an Administrative Law Judge
If your disability claim was denied, we will request to have your case heard before an administrative law judge. This is our first opportunity to meet face-to-face with the person responsible to make a ruling in your case. We are committed to representing your best interests, even if we did not initially represent you.
Before the administrative hearing, we will work with your doctor to get the most recent updates on your medical condition. The hearing will be an informal opportunity for us to plead your case and present the latest medical evidence. The judge will likely ask you a series of questions to understand how your medical condition has affected your ability to hold a job. We can anticipate the type of questions the judge may ask you and will make sure you are fully prepared. We will be by your side throughout the hearing and the duration of your case. Let our Nashville Social Security Disability (SSD) lawyers help.
