Getting The Compensation You Need For Long-Term Injuries
It only takes a moment for an accident to occur. In an instant, a severe injury can cost you your ability to work, take care of yourself and provide for your family. When a tragedy leaves you disabled for an extended amount of time, the benefits from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) from the Social Security Administration (SSA) may be the only source of income you can collect.
My name is Angela Davis-Morris, and I am a Mississippi attorney who has dedicated my practice to helping clients fight for the benefits they need for their illnesses and injuries. From my office, Davis-Morris Law Firm, I guide people through the complex bureaucracy of a disability application. I know how hard it can be to secure these benefits, and I know how to help you assemble your strongest application and appeal any rejections.
Does Your Injury Qualify?
Not every injury automatically qualifies you for disability benefits. In order to receive benefits, your injury needs to prevent you from earning income through gainful work, and it needs to last or be expected to last at least one year. Common examples of these injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Severe scarring or burns
- Sensory loss
- Nerve damage
- Broken bones
It is not enough for someone to have these injuries; they also need to prove the extent of their disability in their application. I can help you compile necessary evidence (such as your medical history surrounding your injury and letters from doctors confirming the severity of your injuries) and accurately complete the required paperwork.
