Helping You Obtain the Benefits You Deserve
When you are not able to work because of a chronic illness, personal injury, disease or other condition, there are a number of financial resources you can use to replace the income you used to earn through working. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is available to you if you worked for 10 years and have been disabled for 12 months or more. If you meet the criteria, you have the right to collect SSDI benefits.
Unfortunately, it is not always easy. If you fill out the application incorrectly there is a risk that your claim will be:
- Denied outright
- Delayed in the process
- Forced to go through a multi-step appeals process
That's where we can help. At Cyrus & Adkins, Attorneys at Law, our Huntington Social Security attorneys and professional staff help individuals with their initial SSDI application. The goal at our law firm is to fill out the application accurately the first time, using our experience and insight that we have about the Social Security Administration and its processes.
Experienced West Virginia Disability Attorneys and Staff
One of our staff professionals, Harriette Cyrus, spent 17 years as the Director of Social Security Office of Hearings & Appeals. Her knowledge and the legal skill of our attorneys are of great benefit to our SSDI clients. For example, there are 113 different illnesses and conditions which are provided with compassionate allowances. These cases are evaluated with special procedures and include rare conditions and illnesses that are terminal. Compassionate allowances are made for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Lewy body dementia, liver cancer and inoperable kidney cancer. We know how to handle these issues.
Many of those who qualify for SSDI are individuals who have lasting side effects from a personal injury. Attorneys John Cyrus and Doug Adkins are recognized among West Virginia's prominent personal injury litigation and Social Security disability lawyers who help plaintiffs (the injured party) recover compensation for their injuries.
At our law firm, we take Social Security Disability cases on a contingency basis. This means we do not charge attorneys fees or other legal costs until your claim is approved and you receive your benefits.
