Social Security Disability

Whether due to a sudden injury, debilitating illness or chronic condition, inability to work almost always creates a pressing need for income from some other source. For many people in these circumstances, the primary source of financial support is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is the federal agency responsible for evaluating disability claims and distributing benefit payments to people who meet established, detailed criteria. While this government program helps millions of Americans and their families, the steps required and hurdles to clear can be very imposing.

Do You Need to Apply for Disability Benefits? Has Your Claim Been Denied?

A high percentage of applications for SSDI benefits are initially denied, and avoiding the delay and hardship this causes or getting a claim denial reversed on appeal often requires a skilled lawyer. At Friedman Law Firm, P.C., we can provide a thorough assessment of your claim at any point in the process and take decisive action if you qualify for benefits.

Led by founding partner Douglas I. Friedman, who is a nationally recognized thought leader on issues related to disability insurance, our Birmingham Social Security disability attorneys focus their professional energies intently on helping people get the benefits they need.

In-Depth Knowledge to Analyze, Prepare and Pursue Your SSDI Claim

We assist clients throughout Alabama with proper preparation of initial SSDI applications, and we also pursue hearings and appeals when valid claims are denied. Our lawyers also help people with disabilities who have not paid enough into the system but qualify for benefits under a separate program called Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

We shape our efforts based on extensive knowledge of the SSA’s criteria and processes, achieving a high rate of success through careful evaluation and diligence every step of the way. In thousands of cases, we have navigated SSA processes successfully and obtained benefits for our Alabama clients.
