Social Security Disability Insurance Denial Lawyers in The Villages, Florida

The Villages SSDI Attorney 352-369-5334

We Can Assist with SSDI, SSD, and SSI Applications and Appeals in The Villages and Surrounding Areas

Have you developed an illness or suffered an injury that will keep you out of work for at least a year? You may be wondering what you can do in regards to income, and this is where a claim for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) could be an option.

At Whittel & Melton, we have the skill and experience to provide sound legal counsel to those in The Villages seeking Social Security disability claims and appeals. We are also equipped to handle cases that involve federal employee disability retirement in The Villages, Florida.

Do you need help filing an initial application for SSD benefits? Do you need to file an appeal for a denied claim? Whatever your needs, we are proud to be able to offer you expert legal assistance navigating this complex system.

SSDI benefits are usually available to those that have worked in the past, but can no longer work for the immediate future (at least a year). Even if you do not qualify for SSDI, you may still be able to seek funds from Supplemental Security Income (SSI), and we can help you apply for these benefits as well.

Our Villages Injury Attorneys at Whittel & Melton are able to assist those who have suffered injuries and illnesses, such as:

  • TBIs or other head injuries
  • Injuries to the hips, legs, shoulders, arms, wrists, and ankles
  • Mental health disabilities like PTSD, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, and others
  • Neck or back injuries
  • Loss of limbs or amputation
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Burn injuries
  • Heart attacks or cardiovascular disease
  • Autoimmune disorders, like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), celiac disease, and more

If you have suffered an injury or illness that prevents you from continuing to work, it doesn’t matter what caused your disability when it comes to seeking Social Security disability. You may have suffered the injury while at home or work or in a car accident or any other scenario, but all that matters when it comes to receiving SSD benefits is if you can work, not what caused your condition. Our Villages Social Security Disability Lawyers at Whittel & Melton can carefully review your case and fight for you throughout every step of the process.

Why Should You Hire a Villages Social Security Disability Lawyer?

The truth of the matter is that most Social Security Disability claims are denied during the initial claims process and even the first round of appeals, so it is best to have an attorney on your side who can help you through this complicated process. Those applying for disability benefits that have been denied initially and at the first step of the appeals process known as the reconsideration level, don’t need to lose hope. You have the option to move forward with your disability claim by seeking a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. At this hearing before an administrative law judge, your attorney can really help you win your case so that you can be awarded Social Security Disability or SSI benefits. While there is no guarantee an attorney will be successful in your claim, having an experienced lawyer on your side can make sure that you have a properly developed case before your hearing date providing you with the best chances of being successful.

How Can Whittel & Melton Properly Develop My SSDI, SSD, or SSI Claim?

Being prepared for a disability case hearing is absolutely vital to the outcome of your case. Our experienced Villages Social Security Disability Lawyers at Whittel & Melton have the knowledge of Social Security rules and regulations needed in order to develop your disability claim keeping an eye towards what the judge will be looking for in order to approve your request.

We will also track down vital medical records and detailed statements from your doctor’s. Our attention to detail along with our thorough understanding of Social Security Act regulations and previous rulings in the disability adjudication process help us develop the best disability case for your specific needs.
