Indiana Social Security Attorneys for Digestive System Disorders
Are you an Indiana resident with a digestive system disorder? You may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
A digestive system disorder is any condition that occurs in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Possible symptoms can include heartburn and lactose intolerance. However, severe digestive system disorders can lead to cancer, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and other debilitating conditions. When you have a digestive system disorder, you may find it hard to work, or your condition could be so severe that you are unable to work altogether. Unfortunately, this can make it difficult for you to provide for yourself and your loved ones, as well as pay for any medical bills that may come up for you as a result of your condition.
The Indiana Social Security Disability lawyers of Hankey Law Office possess a strong knowledge about the SSD claims process. We are keen on helping those who are disabled in Indiana and the greater Midwest secure the financial compensation they need to support themselves and their families.
Do I Need a Social Security Disability Lawyer?
Having an experienced Social Security disability benefits lawyer on your team can make a world of difference for you. The Social Security Administration (SSA) is overwhelmed by thousands of applications each day. Many first-time applicants receive rejection letters because of a simple mistake, or because they omitted documentation the SSA needs to be persuaded that benefits are due. Only 35.25% of all 1,838,893 applicants in 2020 were granted Social Security Disability benefits.
In order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits in Indiana, the SSA will require you to provide evidence of your disability. You’ll also have to show that you’re unable to work because of a qualifying condition. You must prove that your condition has kept you from working for an extended period of time. Without this evidence, you can experience a weeks- or months’-long delay in getting SSD benefits. You might be rejected altogether.
For an individual who deserves SSD benefits, this experience can be stress-inducing and upsetting. A skilled attorney from Hankey Law Office can help to alleviate this stress and upset and help you gather the information you need to make a successful claim for Social Security Disability benefits.
A qualified Social Security Disability lawyer can help you:
- Secure and complete the needed claims paperwork
- Collect the documents necessary to file a claim with the SSA
- Obtain medical documents and records
- Advocate for your right to receive Social Security Disability benefits
- Develop an action plan following a denial of benefits by the SSA
- Create an appeal
With a skilled attorney from Hankey Law Office working on your behalf, you can rest assured that your application will be filled out to the fullest extent and will include all the information vital to your case. These two facts alone can increase your chances of securing the benefits you need.

- Gastrointestinal hemorrhaging
- Chronic liver disease
- Inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBD)
- Short bowel syndrome (SBS)

This list doesn’t cover every disorder that has had a successful claim for benefits. We recommend that you contact an experienced Indiana digestive system disorder lawyer from Hankey Law Office to find out if your particular disorder qualifies you to earn Social Security disability benefits.
