Social Security Disability, or SSD, is a type of benefit for people younger than sixty-five, who have become disabled and can no longer work. People can apply for SSD if they have worked enough to establish a sufficient amount of work credits. If they have not, they can apply for a separate program called Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Each of these programs pays health care expenses and monthly income benefits. A representative at our Houston office can file the application and we can usually see the applicant either the same day or the next, either in person or by phone.
When you have an experienced Social Security disability lawyer on your side, it can make the difference between winning and losing. Our firm’s founder, Victor Makris, is Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law, of which disability law is a part. Fewer than 3% of Texas Attorneys have this distinction.
With a history spanning more than 3 decades of helping thousands of social security disability applicants get both SSD and SSI benefits, Makris Law Firm can help you get the benefits you deserve. Our attorneys know that the key to winning a social security benefits case is preparation, and a part of that preparation is getting the medical records and other evidence you need to win. Part of winning sometimes also involves social security appeals. If necessary, our disability lawyers will appeal cases all the way to Federal Court. We remain one of the few firms that will do that.
As a social security applicant, you will have to show that:
• Your disability interferes with your ability to work;
• There is medical evidence showing the disability;
• The disability is likely to last more than one year or is expected to result in death;
• You are no longer able to do the type of work you previously did and there is no other type of work that you can do full time, every day; forty hours per week.
When it comes to your case, you are more likely to win with a disability lawyer than without one. Having to go up against the Government alone without a social security attorney is intimidating. We have also found that most people who represent themselves do not have much success and end up contacting our social security attorneys to appeal after they lose. Unfortunately, they end up having to wait longer than they would have if they had contacted a lawyer first.
Social Security can and does call their own expert witnesses and you can be asked questions by the judge who is allowed to cross examine you. Don’t face this alone without an attorney. The earlier our Houston-based disability lawyers can get involved, the better we can help you.
