Receive Attention and Support From Experienced Wilmington Disability Lawyers

Committed to helping you receive SSDI benefits in North Carolina

Are you seriously disabled? If so, you may qualify for SSDI benefits. Under the Social Security Disability program, certain individuals who have disabling injuries or illnesses are eligible to receive compensation. The Social Security Administration is very strict, however, when reviewing applications.

We at Lanier Law Group, P.A. understand that if you are disabled, you need the benefits you’re entitled to under the Social Security Disability program. Our lawyers have a reputation for never backing down. When you retain us, we carefully review your medical history and your application and provide you with sound advice at every term. To speak to one our Wilmington lawyers, visit our office at 1213 Culbreth Drive, Suite 120.

Accepted medical conditions, according to the SSA

If you suffer a permanent or total disability in North Carolina, you may qualify for Social Security Disability. The Social Security Administration, however, has a track record of denying claims — even those that have merit. Here are some of the medical conditions accepted by the SSA:

  • Cancer
  • Digestive tract conditions
  • Kidney disease
  • Mental disorders, including schizophrenia and autism
  • Cardiovascular conditions, including heart disease and coronary artery disease
  • Immune system disorders
  • Neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease and cerebral palsy
  • Respiratory disease
  • Sensory and speech conditions

This is not a comprehensive list of disabilities covered by the SSA. For more information on Social Security Disability and SSI, talk to one of our experienced Wilmington attorneys.

What does the SSA mean by disabled?

The Social Security Administration does not pay benefits for partial disability — only for totally disability. To qualify for Social Security Disability in Raleigh and throughout North Carolina, you must meet the following SSA definition of disabled:

  • You cannot perform the work that you did before
  • You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical condition
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one-year or to result in death

If your initial SSDI claim has been denied, or if you're seeking SSI for a disabled child, it's time to hire a heavyweight who will fight for you. Lanier Law Group, P.A. has helped hundreds of people obtain the benefits they need to protect themselves and their families.
