Getting The Benefits 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, to 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 may receive.

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 long-term injuries. From my office, Davis-Morris Law Firm, I guide people through the complex bureaucracy of disability applications. I know how hard it can be to secure these benefits, and I know how to help you assemble your strongest application with proof of disability.

Does Your Long-Term Injury Qualify?

Not every injury automatically qualifies you for Social Security disability benefits. In order to receive benefits, your injury must be significant enough to prevent you from gainfully working, and the disabling effects must last or be expected to last for at least one year. Common examples of these injuries include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Significant back injuries
  • Severe scarring or burns
  • PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
  • Nerve damage and sensory loss

It is not enough for someone to have these injuries; they also need to prove the extent of the limitations from 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.
