  • You can’t adjust to other work due to your medical condition; and
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last at least one year.

Most claims for Social Security are denied because the application does not the evidence to meet the burden required by the government.  Denied applications could cost you back benefits. 

Do not go through the process alone.  An experienced disability attorney is needed to cut through the government’s red tape.  Before you begin the process, contact the Morris Law Firm at (214)357-1782 or via email [email protected]
