If you have been injured and you are unable to work due to a disability, you need help to pay for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are designed to help disabled individuals who have paid into the system all of their life and now require benefits for their well-being. If you need to apply for benefits, or you have had your claim denied, it is important to speak with a lawyer about your rights.
My name is Gregory C. Starkey, and at my law firm in Birmingham, my associate attorney, Mary Margaret McNeil, and I provide help and assistance to people in Birmingham who need to recover benefits under Social Security. Social Security Disability benefits have helped construction workers, industrial warehouse workers, office workers, carpenters, truck drivers and other workers throughout Alabama who are disabled.
There is no fee upfront in Social Security Disability cases. Instead, your lawyer will usually receive contingency fees upon the approval of benefits, which allows disabled individuals to recover compensation without worrying about how to pay a lawyer on top of all their other expenses.
The choice of a lawyer is critical in the SSD process. Many initial applications are denied, and an experienced lawyer can help you in the processing and submitting of appeals. Your lawyer will also represent you in front of an administrative law judge.
