Do You Need Help With A Social Security Disability Claim?

Dealing with a physical or psychological disability that keeps you from working is difficult enough. Trying to find a way to make ends meet can seem impossible.

The Rome, Georgia, Social Security Disability attorneys at Davis, Davis & Patterson have more than 80 years of combined experience guiding people through every aspect of disability law, from the initial application to appeals. We will remain by your side from the hearing through the appeals process.

The disability benefits available to you will depend greatly on your situation. We will take the time to evaluate your situation and provide you with a straightforward assessment of the options available to you such as:

  • Disability insurance benefits (DIB) — A physical or psychological impairment can happen to anyone at any time. If you have a good work history but are dealing with an injury or illness that makes it impossible to work for 12 months or longer, then you may be eligible for DIB.
  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) — Our attorneys will examine all aspects of your SSDI policy and the specific details of your disability to determine your eligibility for compensation. We will represent your best interests during negotiations with the insurance company and, if necessary, in a court of law.
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI) — SSI is a needs-based program administered by the Social Security Administration that provides supplemental income and Medicaid to individuals unable to work due to a mental or physical disability.
  • Children's SSI — This is a needs-based program focused specifically on children in need of financial assistance due to a mental or physical disability.
  • Adult child disability benefits — When a person is disabled before the age of 22, there are often many concerns about long-term care. Under certain circumstances, benefits may be available.
  • Widows' benefits — Most people do not realize that it may be possible for a widow or widower to collect disability benefits on his or her deceased spouse's policy.
  • Auxiliary benefits — Sometimes family members can be eligible for benefits, if you paid in enough to the Social Security Administration.
