Social Security Disability
Let us fight for your Social Security Disability claim
Even after you have been injured, Social Security Disability benefits are notoriously difficult to obtain. The process can be so difficult and time-consuming that even the most deserving candidates give up hope. At HoganWillig, we have the experience and ability necessary to fight for your Social Security Disability claim. We provide legal guidance and advice related to the following government-sponsored disability programs:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are available to individuals who have paid into the Social Security system through their wages and have worked for a specified period of time
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are available to people who do not otherwise qualify for SSDI benefits
Your medical record is of utmost importance when you apply for Social Security Disability. The Social Security Administration decides whether to grant or deny your claim based on your doctor's diagnosis and prediction of recovery. At HoganWillig, we work closely with our clients and their doctors to include all necessary information needed to secure a claim.

He's helped many applicants of Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) throughout his lucrative career.
