Pittsburgh Bipolar Disorder Attorney
Pennsylvania SSDI Guidelines Attorney
The Social Security Administration now recognizes that severe and prolonged mental illnesses such as bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorders and post-traumatic stress syndrome are legitimate disabilities that qualify sufferers for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder or other emotional or mental illness, and can no longer work for a living, talk to an attorney at Dallas W. Hartman, P.C. with offices in New Castle, Hermitage, Butler and Erie, Pennsylvania, to discuss the circumstances of your claim.
What You Will Need to Show
Part of the SSDI application process includes a review of medical records by your state’s Social Security Disability Determination Services. The board will expect to see written documentation by a medical professional, stating the extent of the mental illness and the reasons why the diagnosis prevents the party from returning to work in a former profession or being retrained into a new job. If your emotional or mental disability is denied, our firm will file an appeal for a hearing for reconsideration, where you will have the opportunity to tell your story in front of people. We do not rest until every legal option has been pursued to help you get the money benefits you need and deserve.
We represent clients who are seeking SSDI benefits for mental illness and physical diseases, such as:
- Bipolar disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Auto immune diseases
- Multiple sclerosis
- Heart condition
You Will Not Pay Lawyer Fees If You Do Not Collect Benefits
We handle all Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims and appeals on a contingency fee basis. The percentage amount we charge is based on the amount of money you recover for your claim. We offer a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your disability or injury.
