Indiana Individual Disability Claims Lawyers
All of us hope that we can make it to retirement without any serious health issues. Aside from the stress, pain, and challenges that come with personally dealing with medical conditions, individuals suffering from health problems are also faced with financial distress. How can you support yourself and your family if you have a condition that keeps you from working? How can you manage to keep paying your hospital bills if you aren’t receiving steady paychecks?
These difficult questions face a surprisingly high number of U.S. citizens every year. One in every four of today’s 20-year-olds will become disabled before they retire. According to the Council for Disability Awareness, over 37 million Americans are classified as disabled—that’s 12% of the population. If you are coping with a medical condition that makes working difficult or impossible, you are certainly not alone. The individual disability claims lawyers at Hankey Marks & Crider understand that short- and long-term disabilities can be absolutely devastating. That’s why we are dedicated to helping our clients acquire the financial support they need through Social Security, employer-provided disability insurance plans, and individually-purchased plans.
Types of Disabilities
There are many different types of injuries, illnesses, and medical conditions that can lead to debilitating injuries. Whether your disability is short or long term, it is important that you understand your rights and have experienced, qualified representation. At Hankey Marks & Crider, the types of cases we handle include:
- Behavioral disorders such as anxiety, emotional conditions, and anorexia nervosa
- Mental illnesses
- Chronic issues including recurring pain, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), and chronic migraines
- Heart conditions
Even if your disability is not listed here, our experienced legal team can help. We have extensive experience acquiring Social Security disability benefits for our clients. These benefits can help you and your family minimize the financial challenges associated with disability claims. Unfortunately, many people find that Social Security benefits are difficult to attain. A skilled attorney who understands the complex ins and outs of claims applications and case handling can help ensure that you do not suffer from unnecessary losses or delays.
