Social Security Disability

You need to know this. And we think you will be very happy with the answer so please take a moment to read on! Our fees for your representation are set by the Social Security Administration. Social Security Disability Attorneys are paid only if they help you recover past due benefits and only up to a maximum of 25%. So we get paid ONLY if you are awarded benefits that have accumulated over time, since you became disabled. Most importantly, we will do everything possible to help you qualify recover the owed claims that you rightly deserve. Do we get paid as well? Of course. But only if we are able to win for you. So we are motivated, capable and expert at what we do.

Just as important, there is no charge for contacting Fishman Law offices to discuss your case to determine the next and best course of action. Even if you have tried in the past or you have a neighbor or acquaintance who has not been successful in collecting Social Security Disability Insurance or Benefits, the sooner the process begins with a Fishman Law Attorney, the faster you will begin to receive current and past due benefits.

Disabling Conditions

Disabling Conditions Eligible for Social Security Disability

Contained on this page is a listing of disabling conditions that can be considered severe enough by the Social Security Administration (SSA) to qualify a person for Social Security disability benefits. These conditions can interfere with an individual’s ability to achieve gainful employment, thereby making that person eligible for SSDI or SSI benefits.

Many of these conditions are described in the impairment listing manual, or “Blue Book,” used by state-run Disability Determination Services (DDS) to determine whether or not a person meets the SSA’s criteria for total disability. Claimants who meet the eligibility criteria for a condition listed in the Blue Book should be awarded benefits through the Social Security Disability application process.

In addition to the Blue Book conditions listed below, individuals may qualify for disability benefits under one of the SSA’s 200+ Compassionate Allowance listings. Through the Compassionate Allowance initiative, claimants suffering from extremely severe medical conditions may qualify for expedited consideration of their Social Security Disability claim, thereby drastically reducing the waiting period before approval.

If you believe that you are disabled and would like to know more about applying for Social Security Disability with any of the following conditions, please click on the name of the disease for detailed information about symptoms, diagnoses, and SSA disability criteria for that particular condition. Additionally, you can complete a free evaluation form to find out if you qualify.
