People with mental health conditions tend to be denied benefits by the Social Security Administration much more frequently than those with physical impairments. This is simply because physical impairments that can be seen via X-rays and test results are much harder to dispute than a condition like post-traumatic stress disorder.
A Law Firm Ready to Fight For Your Rights
In order to succeed in getting benefits for people with mental health conditions, an attorney must be skilled at putting together strong cases. At Bailey, Javins & Carter, L.C., our attorneys have decades of experience handling these matters. We know the importance of having the right documentation and the right team, including witnesses and experts as necessary, to convince an administrative law judge that the mental health condition is just as disabling as a physical impairment that can be seen in an X-ray or MRI.
What Mental Health Condition Have You Been Diagnosed With?
We handle cases involving mental health conditions of all types, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression and anxiety. Our history of working with coal miners has seen us pursuing claims for workers who are not able to go back to work because of PTSD suffered after mining catastrophes. We have seen firsthand how serious these conditions can be.
We also know that these cases tend to be won in the appeals phase. The initial application is likely to be denied. The request for reconsideration is also likely to be denied. We must make certain that we are prepared to go to an appeals hearing to get results. We always are.
We work on a contingent fee basis. We do not get paid unless you do.
