Each year, many Ohioans just like you have to leave their jobs after they become seriously ill or badly injured. If you find yourself in this situation, you may be eligible for monthly disability payments from the Social Security Administration. Disability, as defined by the Social Security Act, is the "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months."
Applying for benefits can be a difficult and frustrating process. If you hire a lawyer who specializes in Social Security law, he or she can help simplify the process for you. Statistics from the Social Security Administration show you are more likely to win your case if you retain legal counsel. Using your medical history, your lawyer will frame your case to a Social Security Judge on why you deserve disability status. Social Security lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning that you do not pay a cent unless you win your claim.
Regular checkups will ensure you have up-to-date medical records that are so important when applying for disability status. However, it can be hard to find affordable medical care when you are out of work. Recognizing this, we have drawn up a list of free and low-cost medical clinics in the Athens area as a service to you.
