Need Help Recovering Your Social Security Disability Benefits?

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits provide income to people who are unable to work due to illness, injury or for other medical reasons. The amount of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits a person receives is calculated based on the 10 or more years the person worked prior to becoming disabled. A person who does not qualify for SSDI benefits may receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Applying for SSDI benefits is complex and can be frustrating. More than half of first-time applicants are denied. Cases are won and lost based on medical evidence. Many applicants do not provide enough information to be approved.

In order to qualify for SSDI benefits, a person must not be able to do the work they once did and must be unable to be trained for different work due to their health problems. The medical condition must be expected to last for at least one year or result in death.

At the Law Office of April Perry Randle, PLLC, in Cleveland, Tennessee, attorney Rachel Pas understands what information is necessary to include in an application for disability benefits in order for it to be approved. We help our clients gather medical records, work with doctors to collect supportive medical opinion statements, and present a complete report to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

We Are At Your Side Through An Appeal

If your application is denied — remember, more than half of all applications are — you have 60 days to file an appeal and request a hearing. This is often the moment when injured parties determine what they need from a lawyer they can trust. We will assist with the necessary appeals process and represent you at a disability hearing.

Clients seek legal counsel from our firm because of our experience helping injured individuals receive the benefits they deserve. They also appreciate her empathetic approach and her emphasis on personal attention. Attorney Rachel Pas works directly with every client. She intentionally limits the number of cases she works on at one time in order to provide a high level of service to every client.
