SSD Lawyers Serving Tampa, Holiday, Miami, St. Petersburg, Port Charlotte, Fort Myers, Naples, Bonita Springs and Surrounding Areas
Are you unable to work because of a Florida accident or injury? If so, you could be entitled to monthly cash payments from the federal government.
If a disease, condition or disability limits or prevents you from employment, you may be eligible to receive government assistance in the form of Social Security Disability benefits, also known as “SSD.”
In most cases you must be suffering from a condition that has or will prevent you from being employed for at least 12 months, or a condition that will result in your death. While that might sound straight-forward, the truth is that the process of securing SSD benefits is often complex and drawn-out. Most SSD applicants are denied benefits when they first apply. You must then pursue several levels of appeals, but a denial at any one level or a past denial may not disqualify you from receiving benefits.

About Florida Social Security Disability Claims
Disabilities that prevent people from working are much more common than many people think. In fact, about 30 percent of all American workers will become disabled at some point in their career before retirement, according to the Social Security Administration.
There are a wide variety of debilitating conditions that could prevent someone from working. After handling many SSD cases over the years, the Florida Social Security Disability attorneys at Disparti Law Group have identified some conditions that frequently result in disability, including:
- Neck problems
- Back problems
- Digestive problems
- Heart problems
- Breathing problems
- Mental illness
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Diabetic neuropathy
- Bipolar disorder
- Panic attacks
- Spinal cord injuries
- Joint swelling
- Multiple sclerosis
What Qualifies As “Disabled” For SSD?
The key factor in determining your eligibility for SSD benefits is whether you suffer from a condition that will prevent you from working for 12 months or more. You must be totally disabled to qualify for SSD benefits.
The Social Security Administration considers you to be “disabled” and entitled to SSD benefits if:
- You cannot do work that you did before;
- The Social Security Administration decides that you cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
- Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.
Simply put, there is a lot of gray area in determining whether someone is “disabled” for purposes of SSD benefits. That’s why you need an experienced SSD attorney such as the ones at Disparti Law Group to fight for your rights. Our attorneys understand how the system works and we know how to prepare the best case for your entitlement to the SSD benefits you deserve.
The disability process can be long and frustrating. Let us deal with the government for you while you concentrate on your health and your future. At Disparti Law Group, we will fight hard on your behalf. As part of our commitment to our clients, we always try to respond as quickly and carefully as possible to your legal needs. We temper the speed of our service with the need to be thorough. We don’t want just to take care of your legal needs quickly; we want to take care of them correctly.
What Are The Attorney Fees?
Attorney fees in SSD cases are based on a percentage of any sum recovered, with a maximum fee amount established by the Social Security Administration. The Social Security Administration must approve any attorney fee requests.
If our Florida Social Security Disability lawyers agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if you recover money on your claim.
