Get the SSDI Benefits You Need

No matter how you contracted an illness or suffered an injury, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if the condition prevents you from working in a substantial gainful activity. Getting SSDI benefits is not a straightforward matter, however. Most applicants need a lawyer's help to get through the claims process.

At Kopfler & Hermann, Attorneys at Law, we represent injured maritime workers, people hurt in vehicle accidents or by dangerous property conditions, and victims of medical malpractice. We also help people with physical and mental illnesses apply for SSDI benefits.

Do not give up if your claim was denied. We can review your claim and, hopefully, help you correct the reason for the denial. For a consultation with our Houma Social Security Disability lawyers, please call 800-673-0956 or contact us online.

You Can Appeal a Denial and Fight for Benefits

When an injury or illness makes it impossible to support yourself or your family, you can apply for SSDI benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). SSDI benefits are available for debilitating conditions such as:

  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney and liver diseases
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Neurological disorders
  • Cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Interpreting the SSA's listing of impairments and determining how it applies to you is a complex process that often requires assistance from an attorney. Our lawyers represent people who are submitting applications as well as those who have already been denied. We can represent you during reconsideration, the disability hearing and, if necessary, through administrative and federal court appeals.

Because you only have 60 days from receiving a denial to request reconsideration, a disability hearing with an administrative law judge (ALJ) or a review by the Appeals Council, it is important that you contact a lawyer immediately. We can gather and review your medical evidence, ensuring that you are submitting the medical reports and tests that are required to prove that your medical condition is disabling.
