Social Security Disability Lawyer in Waukesha, Wisconsin
Let a Waukesha Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsMany Americans know that there are social security benefits available for workers who have retired. But not as many are aware that those who have worked and paid taxes into the social security fund have a right to social security disability benefits in the event that they suffer an injury or serious illness. For people who have lost income because a disability has prevented them from working, SSD or SSI (supplemental security income) benefits may be necessary to help pay medical expenses or other household bills.
To learn if you are qualified for social security disability benefits, you must begin with an SSD/SSI application. You can file an application either in person at a Social Security Administration office, online or over the phone. You can also speak with a social security disability advocate you can advise you on disability claim regulations as well as help you throughout the process. In the event that you must file an appeal (nearly three-quarters of all disability benefits claims are initially denied), your SSD/SSI lawyer can help prepare you or any potential witnesses to appear in front of a judge, if necessary.

The city of Waukesha once was famous for its clean spring water and earned the nickname the “Saratoga of the West”. It also is home to a bit of sports trivia. In a 1906 football game between Carroll College and St. Louis University, SLU running back Bradbury Robinson threw the first legal forward pass in the history of the game. St. Louis went on to win the game 22-0 and changed football forever. Today, Waukesha is the seat of Waukesha County which is home to almost 40,000 disabled people . A number of them likely could qualify for SSD or SSI benefits.
When applying for social security disability benefits, people frequently ask how disabled they must be in order to win their case. The short answer is that there is no definitive standard. A number of factors – including age, condition and previous occupation – are considered before a decision is made. In many cases, workers who are closer to retirement age are more likely to have their applications approved. However if it is determined that there is other work within the same occupation that a person may still be suited for, there is a chance that a disability claim will be rejected.
Nonetheless, tens of thousands of Americans under the age of 50 are still eligible to receive social security disability benefits. They must prove that they are unable to work a full-time job without being forced to miss multiple days every month. If you feel that you fall into that category, consult your doctor on your condition then speak with a qualified SSD/SSI attorney who can explain all of your options to you. It is also very helpful to have detailed medical records of your injury or illness to help back up your claim.
