Having Depression May Qualify Your For Benefits

At the Rome, Georgia, law firm of Davis, Davis & Patterson, we understand that depression can be far more than a passing feeling. It can be a debilitating condition. If your depression or any other affective mood disorder prevents you from working for at least 12 months, turn to us. Our lawyers are here to help you navigate the legal system surrounding Social Security Disability benefits.

Providing Proof Of Your Impairment

Depression is one of many psychological conditions that can result in impaired functioning. Extreme fatigue, anhedonia or loss of ability to experience pleasure, "zoning out" and inability to concentrate — all these symptoms of depression can cause a person to be inattentive at work and lose his or her job. Often, people suffering from severe depression find it impossible to get out of bed in the morning or go to work at all.

Our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined experience and have assisted thousands of clients. This means we have the in-depth knowledge necessary to effectively present your case to the Social Security Administration. We will gather as much medical proof as possible to support your claim, including any evidence of:

  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Concentration problems
  • Hallucinations
  • Anxiety or panic attacks
  • Severe sleep disturbances
  • Loss of interest in life
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
