If you have been permanently injured due to a disease, mental issues, personal injury or through a work related injury, there is help available in the form of Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). The federal Social Security system is designed to help people who can no longer work.

It does not matter whether or not you have worked or paid money into social security. All that matters is that you need help and it is available if you know how to apply for Social Security.

At The Sexton Law Firm, we can help you file a claim for Social Security to obtain monthly Social Security Disability benefits as well as retroactive benefits from the time that you initially filed a claim. With over 25 years' experience, we're here to make the law work for you.

The Social Security Disability Appeals Process

Many claims for disability benefits are turned down the first time. This is a normal part of the process, but it is also an indicator that it is time to hire an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer. The Sexton Law Firm will help you get through the application process successfully because we know the Social Security system.

SSD or SSI?

Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are designed to help aged, blind and disabled people receive the income they need to meet their daily needs. Many people qualify to receive these benefits based on their situation.

However, some people either don't know they qualify or have been told they don't qualify by Social Security Administration. Even though you may have been told you don't qualify, it's not necessarily true. At The Sexton Law Firm, we can help you appeal an incorrect decision and make sure you get the monthly check you need.

Services We Provide

As part of our service at The Sexton Law Firm, we help you file your initial application as well as any necessary appeals. Unfortunately, the process to receive SSD and SSI is not very straightforward. There are numerous federal forms that must be filled out properly. We will assist you in this process. We also prepare all necessary documents and evidence for a trial before a judge. This includes proper medical evidence and treatment to help ensure the desired outcome.

Our office will process your claim for Social Security Disability benefits on a contingency basis. This means that you will not have to pay attorney fees unless you win your case. If we are successful, our fees are taken out as a percentage of your retroactive benefits. We never take fees out of the monthly benefits you will receive.
