Total & Permanent Disability Claims in North Carolina
Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits
In order to be eligible for
Social Security disability (SSD) in North Carolina, you must have a total and/or permanent disability as
defined by the Social Security Administration (SSA). SSD benefits are
not provided for individuals who have suffered only a partial disability.
In other words, you must prove to the SSA that your condition:
- Prevents you from returning to your previous employment
- Prevents you from obtaining comparable employment/partial employment
- Has lasted or is expected to last at least 12 continuous months or is expected
to result in death
If you have suffered a temporary total disability, you may be able to recover
wage replacement benefits through your employer’s
workers’ compensation insurance.

Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim, we encourage

No Recovery, No Fee
Our North Carolina total and permanent disability lawyers understand the
challenges you and your family are facing. Severe disabling conditions
can place an immense financial burden on individuals who find themselves
suddenly unable to provide for themselves or their loved ones. Because
of this, we are passionate about helping you fight for the SSD benefits
you are owed.
We also understand that you may be worried about the cost of hiring an
attorney to help you with your claim. However, we provide all of our services
on a contingency fee basis. This means that there are absolutely zero
upfront costs for you and, rather, our attorneys only collect
fees only if and when they are successful in recovering compensation for you.
Your initial consultation is free, so there is no risk in speaking to
an attorney at our firm about your case.
