Filing For Disability Benefits In Georgia

If you have been or you will be disabled from work for at least a year, or if you are blind, or have an incurable disease or terminal condition, or if you have suffered a catastrophic injury, then you meet the Social Security Administration's definition of disabled. But meeting this requirement for disability benefits is only the first step. You must then apply for benefits, either through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Many applicants are denied several times, even if they have a qualifying impairment and disability. At Law Offices of Dennis L. Duncan, PC, we understand the devastation you may feel when you are initially turned down for benefits but we want you to know we are here to help you.

We established our law firm in order to better serve the underrepresented individuals in Georgia who are living with a disability but are having difficulty getting access to the disability benefits they need to stay financially afloat. Our firm is here to help you maximize your chances of success at the Administrative Law Judge hearing level or help with the reconsideration or appeals process of your claim.

We work with people affected by a wide range of disabilities such as:

  • Spinal disorders
  • Head and brain injuries

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Lupus

Caring Representation For The Long Term

Duncan, PC, we understand this, which is why we offer a full range of services to people suffering from a disabling injury, illness or condition. We can help you pursue a workers' compensation claim or file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to your application for disability benefits.
