Disability Benefits For All Types Of Conditions

PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to provide Social Security Disability assistance to people who are currently employed, already receiving SSDI benefits, or have not been declared unable to work by a medical professional.

If a physical disability or psychological condition is preventing you from holding a job, you may already know that Social Security Disability benefits can help. However, actually obtaining these benefits may seem impossible.

That’s where Smith, Feddeler & Smith, P.A., comes in. Over the decades, we have assisted thousands of injured and disabled clients in Lakeland and across Florida. Even if your claim has already been denied, don’t worry. We have extensive experience in appeals.

Obtaining Benefits For Physical Conditions

In order to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits for a physical disability, you must be able to prove that the condition makes it impossible for you to work for at least a year. Sometimes, proving this is simple. If you are a nurse who lost one arm in a car accident, the case for benefits is fairly clear-cut. However, if you are a receptionist who suffered a back injury, it may be more difficult to show that you cannot perform any kind of job.

Following are a few common physical disabilities that may potentially qualify for benefits:

  • Loss of sight
  • Loss of hearing
  • Cancer
  • Amputation
  • Herniated disks
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Diabetes
  • Heart conditions
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Severe arthritis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

Obtaining Benefits For Mental Conditions

Cases involving mental or emotional conditions are often much more challenging to prove. Although you know you can’t work, convincing the Social Security Administration of that fact is a job for a highly skilled attorney.

We can advocate for you in cases involving all types of mental conditions, including:

  • Severe depression
  • Anxiety disorder / panic attacks
  • Autism
  • Bipolar disorder / schizophrenia
  • Amnesia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Chronic pain
  • ADHD
