Do I Need a Disability Attorney in Doylestown, Pennsylvania?

Obtaining approval for an award is an extremely difficult task with a high rate of initial failure.  According to the Social Security Administration’s own statistics, more people will be denied than approved after submitting their first claim.  For people who move forward through the process of appealing an initial rejection, the likelihood of approval plummets even lower.

The SSA imposes very strict standards of eligibility to help minimize acts of social security fraud, but unfortunately, the result is that disabled people who are seeking benefits are burdened with a challenging and emotionally draining application process.  When financial stress and physical suffering enter the picture, being approved by the SSA can seem impossible.

At Young, Marr & Associates, we are seasoned attorneys with over 25 years of experience. We provide legal services including but not limited to:

  • Evaluating applications to improve the strength of a claim.
  • Interviewing physicians and employers.
  • Aggressive representation for clients who wish to appeal a denied claim (Reconsideration, ALJ Hearing, Appeals Council Review, Federal Court).

Why Does the SSA Deny Disability Claims?

According to SSA data for all disabled beneficiaries in the United States, in 2010 there were:

  • 878,497 technical denials
  • 688,348 medical denials
  • 12,418 subsequent non-medical denials

In 1999, the average national award rate for disabled beneficiaries was exactly 56%.  By 2010, that number plummeted to just 34.8%.  This means that today, only about one-third of all disability applications will be approved. The majority will be denied.

43.6% of all Americans will be denied due to a medical reason, meaning that under the SSA’s requirements, their health condition or impairment does not qualify them as disabled.  The SSA may determine that:

  • Your disability is not severe enough to prevent you from working at your normal job.
  • Your disability is severe enough to prevent you from working at your normal job, but there are other jobs you could perform.
  • Your disability will not last long enough (at least 12 months, with the exception of blindness).
  • You have failed to comply with your physician’s recommendations for treatment or therapy (with some exceptions).
  • Your disability is not included on the SSA’s List of Impairments.

Common Conditions That Can Qualify You for Benefits

The SSA actually maintains two separate Lists of Impairments, one for adults, and one for children. The good news is, both lists are quite comprehensive and include a broad spectrum of physical and mental disabilities.  Conditions considered to be disabilities for adults include:

  • Skin Disorders (Dermatitis, Burns, Ichthyosis)
  • Respiratory Conditions (Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis)
  • Congenital Disorders (Down Syndrome)
  • Neurological Disorders (Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease)
  • Cardiovascular Conditions (Chronic Heart Failure, Heart Disease)
  • Digestive System Disorders (Chronic Liver Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease)
  • Speech and Sense Impairments (Speech Loss, Hearing Loss, Vision Loss)
  • Immune System Disorders (HIV/AIDS, Arthritis, Lupus)
  • Musculoskeletal Conditions (Joint Problems, Amputations)
  • Hematological (Blood) Disorders (Sickle Cell Disease, Chronic Anemia)
  • Mental Disorders (Schizophrenia, Autism, Anxiety, Intellectual Disability)
  • Organ Transplants (Lung, Liver, Heart)
  • Cancer

The disabilities listed for children are largely the same, with several additions, such as ADHD and growth impairment.

If you are struggling financially due to a disability’s interference with your employment, you may be eligible to be approved for disability benefits. To schedule a confidential, no-cost case evaluation with one of our Doylestown, Pennsylvania social security disability attorneys, call Young, Marr & Associates at (609) 755-3115 in New Jersey or (215) 701-6519 in Pennsylvania, or contact us online.

ALL CASES ARE OVERSEEN BY FORMER SOCIAL SECURITY LEGAL REPRESENTATIVES

We know the process is difficult – your job is to get better, and our job is to make sure you get the disability you deserve.

Chances are you are preoccupied dealing with a painful illness. You are concerned about your financial future, about how you will get by without a steady source of income.
