Representation That Understands Your Disabling Conditions

When you are pursuing Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you are trying to prove your illness is real before the eyes of the law. When you are in your appeal phase, your lawyer acts as your mouthpiece for much of your case. If your lawyer does not understand your illness or disability, how can you expect your lawyer to be able to prove your case?

Here at Brod Disability Law, our North Carolina team has extensive experience in representing clients with a wide spectrum of ailments. Attorney Brod also holds a master’s degree in psychology, which gives our team additional first-hand knowledge of many illnesses. We understand that any combination of physical or mental illness or impairments can keep you from earning income. For a disability to earn SSDI or SSI benefits, it needs to be considered terminal or to last more than one year.

Our Understanding Of Your Illness Can Be Your Greatest Advantage

There are many obstacles you will need to overcome while trying to prove your illness. Firstly, your illness needs to be “medically determinable” or confirmed by medical evidence. It also needs to be severe enough that it keeps you from working. While physical illnesses are mostly easy to prove of this, the rest of them are much harder because they cannot be seen by the naked eye.

These types of “invisible” illnesses include:

  • Chronic pain syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Depression

Even visible illnesses like Parkinson’s or cancer can be difficult to prove. Thankfully, our years of intimate representation of our clients has given us a first-person view of these illnesses. This unique perspective offers us the ability to translate your illness from the medical world into the legal world, making it easier for others to accept your claim for benefits.
