Qualifying for Social Security Disability Benefits

Logo for Jack J Schmerling, Attorney at Law

If you expect to file a permanent disability claim in Baltimore, you need the help of an experienced personal injury attorney. Your personal injury attorney can explain the factors involved in qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) with a permanent disability claim. To be eligible for benefits, you must prove that your injury is severe and disabling, and prevents you from doing your usual work activities. It must also prevent you from adapting to a new type of work. Furthermore, the disability must be expected to last at least one year or to result in death.
