Why Does Anyone Need a Social Security Disability Attorney?

We’ve all heard the stories about someone getting disability benefits “even though there is nothing wrong with him”.  We have been dealing with the Social Security Disability process for years and we can tell you that these stories are almost always false.
The Social Security Disability process includes several layers of scrutiny to weed out individuals that do not have legitimate claims.  The system is designed to make it extremely difficult for people to get approved for their disability benefits.  This process involves analyzing the disabled individual’s medical records and, often, sending that person for examinations that are performed by doctors paid by the Social Security Administration.  While these doctors are supposed to be impartial, their findings rarely help the person applying for Social Security Disability benefits.  Often, these doctors contradict the disabled individual’s treating doctors despite the objective findings of those doctors.
Many people think that eliminating attorneys from the process would be good for the disability system.  They see people applying for Social Security Disability benefits claimants and their attorneys as simply trying to “game” the system.  However, people that try to navigate the disability process on their own are often turned down despite having serious, disabling medical conditions.  I recently went to a hearing with a client who had suffered from Cerebral palsy since birth.  In spite of that condition, my client had worked for many years.  Finally the symptoms progressed to the point that my client was having extreme difficulty with balance.  My client was unable to stand or walk for more than a few minutes without falling down, which placed my client at high risk for injury in the workplace.  This individual applied for disability benefits and was turned down twice.  After we were hired, we submitted evidence on our client’s behalf and presented the case at the hearing.  We were successful in getting our client’s disability approved.  If attorneys were eliminated from the process, a deserving individual like this would have nowhere to turn after being denied benefits.
The vast majority of people that come to us for help with their disability claim are hard working folks with injuries, diseases, or other conditions that have progressed to the point that they are not able to work anymore.  Many of them have tried to work despite their limitations but have found they are not able to do the job.  They have paid into the Social Security system for years, but now that they need it they have been denied benefits.  The only hope they have is to get help from an attorney with the experience and knowledge to develop their case, submit the proper evidence and present their case at the hearing.  At Perkins Studdard, we take pride in helping these individuals get the benefits they deserve.  If you have any questions about Social Security Disability, please feel free to call us or complete the “Need Help” form on this page for a free consultation.

What if I have other questions about workers compensation?

Georgia’s workers compensation system can be very confusing.  You have to worry about getting the treatment you need and paying your bills while also worrying about not missing any deadlines that could cause you to lose your right to receive workers compensation benefits.

It took me probably too long to finally get a lawyer when my work comp claim started and I had no idea what I should do. I read reviews and upon recommendation of several people started the process of getting a lawyer. I am fortunate and lucky to have come across Perkins Studdard. Jason and his team has taken care of me since the moment I first called them and made sure any and all questions I had were answered as well as working hard to get me my settlement so I can continue receiving treatment. If you're looking for a good law firm to represent you in your worker's compensation case I would highly highly recommend this one.Autumn Fields

This law firm is very good at what it does the staff and the lawyer's that were involved with my case all were very perfesional and curious I couldn't ask for a better law firm I want to thank everyone for a great job thanks Les RyanLeslie Ryan
I absolutely love this group of attorneys, when I was at my lowest they did everything they could to help me get justice for my injury. I believe if I were to have never picked my phone up and called the amazing group that helped me I definitely would not have received my idea of rights. If you have an issue and are just not sure please understand that they will help you, stay in contact, answer any question you have, and for sure get you the justice you deserve I thank them from the bottom of my heart and I will definitely refer them to anyone who has been hurt because they most definitely care about their work and clients.China Jones
The entire law office was attentive and responsive to all of my concerns dealing with my workers compensation case.Luv Locs
If you must get a lawyer involved, you’d do well to work with Jason Perkins and his team at Perkins Studdard Law. They were thorough in gathering information and in sharing all the steps in the workers comp process specific to my case. Jason and the team were responsive to my bevy of questions and concerns. I appreciated the informative videos and consultations provided by Jason over video meetings and multiple phone calls. I hope I’m never injured on the job again. However, if I am and if my employer responds as my previous employer did, I’ll contact Perkins Studdard Law immediately to handle the case.moombi
Everyone at Perkins Studdard was kind and professional. They were always extremely responsive and answered all questions that I had and followed up to make sure I had an understanding of what was going on along with emailing videos to explain every step of my case so I would know what to expect and be prepared. Jason is a very genuine person and I trusted him with my case. He answered so many questions for me even before I retained him as my WC lawyer. I highly recommend him and his associates at Perkins Studdard.Dana Bess
Great staff and very knowlegable. They treat you like family and work hard to get you what you need. Highly recommended.Josh Carter
