Who Is Entitled to Social Security Disability Benefits in Alabama?

Many people are completely unaware of the fact that they may be entitled to file a claim to seek benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance Program. Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are available to any individual who has had Social Security payroll taxes deducted from his or her paycheck at work. To file a claim for SSD benefits in Alabama, all an individual must do is prove that he or she is suffering from an illness or injury that will prevent that individual from being able to work for at least the next 12 months. Benefits are also available to those whose injury or illness has been diagnosed as life-threatening or incurable.

If you are unsure as to whether you may be entitled to receive SSD benefits, and how much you can expect to receive, we advise you discuss the matter with a Dothan personal injury attorney at our firm. Our firm has helped countless individuals avail themselves of the disability benefits they have been contributing to for most of their adult lives. We understand the documentation the Social Security Administration requires to approve these types of claims, and even when a claim has been denied, we can still aggressively pursue an appeal on a client’s behalf. Individuals who are entitled to SSD benefits deserve to have legal counsel fighting for their rights.

In this type of situation, the final outcome of your claim will depend heavily on the representation you choose. We understand how important it is for an individual to receive SSD benefits after suddenly being unable to work or maintain a stable source of income due to disability. Our attorneys have over a century of legal experience between them. When you obtain our counsel, you will be able to tap into our extensive backgrounds and in-depth knowledge of the various benefits available to the victims and families of personal injury accidents.
