Experienced Social Security Disability Benefits Attorney in Marshall, Texas

In Need of a Social Security Disability Benefits Lawyer in Marshall?

At the Carlile Law Firm, LLP, our Marshall Social Security disability lawyers know that it can be challenging for our clients to accept their conditions and significantly lose their independence.

We recognize that individuals with disabilities may no longer be able to work, drive, or perform daily activities without assistance. This loss can lead to helplessness, frustration, and diminished self-worth. We also understand that disability often comes with financial stress, difficulty meeting basic needs, and concerns about long-term financial security.

Many disabilities are accompanied by chronic pain, discomfort, and other health issues. Dealing with ongoing physical symptoms can take a toll on a person’s emotional well-being, leading to depression, anxiety, and feelings of despair.

Unfortunately, our Harrison County Social Security Disability benefits attorneys know that thousands of people in our Texas communities face secondary challenges when navigating the disability benefits process.

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be complex, lengthy, and frustrating. Clients may face bureaucratic hurdles, delays in processing their claims, and denials that require appeals. The uncertainty and waiting involved in the application process can be emotionally taxing and exacerbate feelings of anxiety and hopelessness. This is why we are here.

Contact our Marshall Social Security Disability lawyers today and learn how we can use our over 100 years of combined experience to benefit you and your family.

If you have mental or physical impairments that prevent you from working, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.

The government uses the five-step process to determine whether an individual meets the criteria to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

They include:

  • Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA)

The first step evaluates whether you engage in substantial gainful activity (SGA). If you are working and your earnings exceed a threshold set by the SSA, they are typically considered not disabled. If the individual is not engaging in SGA, the evaluation proceeds to the next step.

  • Severity of Impairment

At this step, the SSA assesses the severity of your impairment(s). The impairment(s) must significantly limit your ability to perform basic work-related activities, such as walking, sitting, lifting, or remembering instructions. If the impairment(s) is not severe enough to meet the SSA’s criteria, you may not be considered disabled. If the impairment(s) is severe, the evaluation moves to the next step.

  • Listing of Impairments

The SSA maintains a Listing of Impairments or the “Blue Book,” which outlines specific medical conditions and criteria that automatically qualify you for disability benefits if your condition(s) meets or equals the severity outlined in the listing. If your impairment(s) meets or equals a listing in the Blue Book, you are considered disabled. If not, the evaluation proceeds to the next step.

  • Residual Functional Capacity (RFC)

If your impairment(s) does not meet or equal a listing in the Blue Book, the SSA assesses the individual’s residual functional capacity (RFC). Considering your physical and mental limitations, RFC assesses your ability to perform work-related activities despite your impairments. The SSA evaluates your RFC to determine whether you can perform past relevant work (work they have done in the past 15 years). If you can perform their past work, you are considered not disabled. The evaluation proceeds to the final step if they cannot perform their past work.

  • Ability to Perform Other Work

At this step, the SSA considers your RFC, age, education, and work experience to determine whether you can adjust to other work that exists in significant numbers in the national economy. If you can adapt to different work, you are not disabled. If you cannot adjust to other work, considering your age, education, and work experience, you are considered disabled and may be eligible for disability benefits.

At Carlile Law Firm, LLP, we fully understand the disability process. We are here to help you file for disability or appeal the denial of a disability claim, starting with a free consultation.

Have You Been Denied Social Security Disability Benefits?

If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits (SSD or SSDI), we want you to know that you are not alone. Each year, thousands of legitimate SSD claims are denied by the government. In some cases, applicants failed to provide adequate medical information. In other instances, the forms were not properly executed. Claims are often denied because the applicant did not have the legal knowledge to make a solid argument for benefits. Regardless of why your claim was denied, we want to assure you that this is not the end of the road. There is still hope. By retaining our qualified disability attorneys, your chances for a successful appeal increase significantly.
