Work with Experienced Attorneys to Secure Social Security Disability Insurance

The process of securing disability benefits for you or a loved one can be a difficult to navigate. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is meant to provide aid for those who can no longer work as a result of physical injury, mental illness, or a combination of medical problems. As part of this process, you may need to submit tax forms, work history, a disability report describing your condition, among other things. Unfortunately, applications for these benefits are oftentimes denied.

In the event that your SSDI application has been denied, worry not. At Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys, we help clients in this exact situation. One of our attorneys will handle your appeal and formal hearing so you can get the benefits you deserve.


We believe everyone deserves skilled legal representation. That means you don’t owe us any fees unless we win your case.

Best Practices for Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance

There are a number of criteria that the Social Security Administration reviews when determining your eligibility. Firstly, if you are unable to do the work you did in the past, your medical condition, age, education, past work experience, and skills will be evaluated to determine if you are capable of other work. If you cannot do other work, the Social Security Administration will conclude that you are disabled. Otherwise, you will receive a letter of denial. Your disability being expected to last at least one year or result in death is another determinant the Social Security Administration uses to decide whether or not you are eligible for SSDI.

It is necessary that you have medical evidence from your doctors and hospitals, clinics, or institutions where you have been treated to provide to the Social Security Administration, as they will use this information to resolve your SSDI application. Make sure that your medical provider is fully aware of the symptoms you are experiencing and that everything is documented in your records.
