We Can Guide You Through the SSDI Process
If you or a family member is suffering debilitating symptoms from an injury or illness, you should be spending your time and energy on the medical care you need. If you are trapped in the red tape of the Social Security Disability (SSD/SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) process, however, you will have little time left for rest and medical treatment.
Working with an experienced attorney can simplify the SSD and SSI processes, and increase your chances of receiving the benefits you need. Burge & Burge, PC, understands that being denied benefits is frustrating. We can review your claim and advise you on the next steps such as a hearing before an administrative law judge.

Are You Eligible for Benefits?
Failure to provide the right kind of medical information is the reason the majority of SSD/SSI claims are denied. Without the proper medical evidence, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will not have enough information to determine if your condition is disabling. Our attorneys can help you gather the type of information the SSA wants to see.
SSD/SSI benefits are granted based on your residual functional capacity to perform substantial gainful employment despite your injury or illness. If the SSA determines that your condition prevents you from earning sufficient income, you will receive benefits. You may submit a claim for disabling physical and mental impairments.
Some of the physical conditions and injuries we often see include back and disk disorders, osteoarthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, lupus, fibromyalgia and chronic pain.
People suffering from mood and anxiety disorders, such as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder, may also be eligible for benefits. To discuss your claim, please contact our Alabama SSDI lawyers at 205-545-8291 today. Our firm can also handle Social Security reconsideration matters if a claim has been denied.
