At the Odom Law Firm, our Northwest Arkansas personal injury lawyers have more than 100 years of combined experience representing area residents injured in accidents. From our Fayetteville law offices, established in 1982, we serve clients across the country. Whether you have been catastrophically injured in a truck accident or as a result of a defective product, we can help you hold the responsible party accountable and recover the compensation you deserve.
If you have sustained an injury that left you unable to work, you may be eligible for social security disability (SSD) benefits. Unfortunately, getting approved for these benefits can be difficult. More than half of the initial claims are turned down. Thankfully, if your claim has been denied, you have the opportunity to appeal that decision.
At the Odom Law Firm, in Fayetteville, Arkansas, we have been helping people obtain social security disability benefits since 1982. Many of our clients are injured workers who are no longer able to support their families. Whether you need assistance filling out the initial application or appealing a denial, our attorneys are ready to help you. You can call us at any stage of the proceedings, whether you are just applying, are having your case reconsidered, have requested a hearing or you need to file an appeal.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS?
To be eligible for Social Security Disability, you must have suffered an injury that left you unable to be substantially and gainfully employed. Further, you must have contributed to the Social Security benefit fund for a period of time through your prior employment.
HOW CAN AN ATTORNEY HELP?
Having a skilled lawyer on your side can make a significant difference in the outcome of your claim. As your legal team, we will:
Gather the relevant information
Prepare and submit your application to the Social Security Administration
Present your case before the judge at the administrative hearing
Because the process of obtaining benefits is complicated and lengthy, it is helpful to have an experienced legal advocate guiding you and answering your questions. We are dedicated to pursuing your case and getting the benefits you deserve.
MY CLAIM HAS BEEN DENIED. NOW WHAT?
Although a claim denial is disheartening, it is not necessarily the final decision; you may have the opportunity to appeal a decision or submit a corrected application. A majority of claims are initially turned down. Many people who attempt to file a benefits application themselves fill out forms incorrectly or gather the wrong type of information. Hiring our knowledgeable social security disability lawyers can significantly increase your chance of success on appeal.
