Social Security Disability Lawyer in Yakima, Washington
Let a Yakima Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsThe medical bills that come with a debilitating injury or illness can drain a person's or family's financial resources. When they are combined with everyday living expenses, the combination can be more than many people can afford. To help with these situations, the Social Security Administration offers disability benefits to those who qualify. To be eligible, you must prove that you have a condition which has kept you out of full-time work for more than 12 months and prevents your from continuing to pursue your previous occupation.
Filing an application for social security disability (SSD) or supplemental security income (SSI) benefits does not take the help of a licensed law professional. It can be done online, by phone or in person at a local Social Security Administration office. But for the average person, it is difficult to win a case on your own. That is why many people enlist the help of a social security disability attorney. With an SSD/SSI lawyer by your side, your chances of having your disability benefits claim accepted improves dramatically. Their knowledge of disability law allows them to create a narrative that can sway a decision in your favor.

If you're traveling along Interstate 82 and you see a sign welcoming you to “The Palm Springs of Washington”, you know you've made it to Yakima. The first outsiders to the area were members of the Lewis and Clark expedition who arrived in 1805. The settlements that were initially established eventually were moved to the city's current location (the original location is today known as the town of Union Gap). However Yakima and surrounding Yakima County are also home to more than 44,000 people living with disabilities . There is a chance that a number of those disabled could qualify to receive social security disability benefits.
An important part of winning your SSD/SSI benefits claim is to be open and honest with your doctor about your condition. His or her opinion can impact the final decision over your disability benefits application or appeal. Talk to your doctor about your occupation and learn whether or not your disability would prevent you from being able to do it on a full-time basis. For instance, a construction worker with a knee injury may not be able to stand for long periods of time thus would have a difficult time doing his job.
Be aware that if you are not permanently disabled, you might lose your SSD/SSI benefits if it is determined that you are able to return to work. The Social Security Administration may occasionally request your medical records to see if you are still disabled. If you disagree with a decision that denies you your SSD/SSI benefits, you may appeal the decision. Your disability benefits attorney can inform you of what options you have and aid in streamlining your SSD/SSI appeal.
