Southwest Virginia SSDI & SSI Social Security Disability Lawyer

SSI Social Security Disability LawyerSouthwest Virginia Social Security Disability Lawyer for Claim Filing and Benefit Denial / Appeals

Astoundingly, 23.6% of adults in Virginia have a disability.[1]  If you or a loved one is living with a serious mental or physical disability and is unable to work, you may qualify for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (“SSA”).

Each year, hundreds of thousands of Southwest Virginians are eligible to collect disability benefits through two government programs: Social Security Disability Insurance (“SSDI”) and Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”).  However, the process to become one of the recipients of these benefits can be extremely difficult, as the majority of initial applications are denied, despite the applicant satisfying the medical requirements.

At the Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt, we have successfully represented SSDI and SSI clients throughout Southwest Virginia for years.  As an experienced Southwest and Abingdon, Virginia Social Security Disability lawyer, Mark Hurt can utilize his experience to help you file an application or appeal for the benefits you and your family deserve.

Available SSDI and SSI Disability Benefits

Many individuals are eligible to collect SSDI or SSI benefits; and, in some cases, they may be eligible to receive both concurrently.[4]  To qualify for disability benefits, an adult individual must prove they have a mental, emotional or physical impairment which:

  • Stops them from engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (“SGA”); and
  • Has lasted continuously for a minimum of one year or can be expected to result in death.[5]

A person earning more than the SSA-stipulated monthly amount is typically considered to be engaged in SGA.  For 2020, the monthly SGA for blind individuals is $2,110; for those who are not blind, the SGA is $1,260 per month.[6]  To incentivize attempts to return to work, the SSA permits disabled beneficiaries to collect benefits while engaging in work, as long as their monthly income is below the SGA limits.

While it is possible to engage in limited work, benefits may be compromised if you earn too much income.  Thus it is advisable to consult with a skilled disability lawyer in order to understand your entitlement to benefits. As a Southwest Virginia and Hillsville Social Security Disability lawyer, attorney Mark Hurt understands how work affects SSDI eligibility and can provide advice on how you may be able to earn limited income (if you are able to do so) under  the SGA thresholds and still receive benefits.

Social Security Disability Insurance

SSDI is a federal program that supports individuals who are disabled and have a qualifying work history.[7]  As those who are workers know well, social security is deducted from each paycheck, and this amount is contributed to the social security program. If a worker contributes enough payroll taxes into the Social Security fund (throughout their career), they will be eligible to collect benefits.

How is Social Security Compensation Paid?

Benefit compensation is paid monthly for the duration of the disability, and may increase as the cost of living increases.  In 2019, the average disability benefit is $1,233.70 per month;

In addition to paying benefits to a disabled worker, the spouse and children of SSDI recipients may also be eligible to collect a partial benefit.  Additionally, survivors’ benefits can be awarded, if a loved one dies while collecting SSDI; a spouse, parent or child may be eligible to collect benefits based on the deceased individual’s work record.  When you meet with our firm, we can advise you as to your eligibility, and that of your family members, to collect additional social security benefits.

Supplemental Security Income – What if I Have Not Worked Long Enough?

For low-income individuals who have not fulfilled the SSDI work requirements, SSI may be available in place of normal social security compensation.  If you are aged, blind, or disabled, you may qualify if your assets are less than $2,000, and you have a limited income.  In addition, in most states a person collecting SSI benefits will also automatically qualify for Medicaid.

Applying for Social Security Disability Benefits

More than half of all those applying for SSDI benefits receive an initial rejection.  As a Southwest Virginia Social Security Disability lawyer serving Roanoke and the surrounding communities, through our experience, familiarity with the common reasons for claim rejection, and understanding of precisely what it usually required in order to receive benefits, we can help to increase your chances of successfully being awarded the benefits you are entitled to at the outset.  And, because we are only entitled to a fee of 25% of the “backpay” (not future benefits), our fee tends to be relatively minimal when we assist applicants who are seeking benefits shortly after they have become disabled.

Prior to filing a claim, a SSA Disability Report must be completed, and the following supporting documents must be compiled:

  • Personal Identification (birth certificate, proof of U.S. citizenship, military discharge paperwork (if prior to 1968), etc.);
  • Benefit award letters and settlement agreements (including temporary or permanent workman’s compensation)
  • Work History (tax returns, W-2s, paystubs, etc.)

A representative from the SSA will ask you a series of questions regarding you, your family, your disability, your work history, and general medical treatments and care.  It is important to be candid about your disability and to ensure that you provide details regarding any secondary medical issues stemming from your impairment.

Appealing a Denial of SSDI Benefits

If your SSDI or SSI claim has been denied, it is natural to feel dejected and hopeless, but it is important to understand that you may still have options. 70% of all initial disability claims are denied, even when a person has a qualifying disability.  Benefits are often rejected for the following reasons:

  • Disability is not severe enough or is not expected to last at least one year
  • The disabled individual can perform their usual work or another type of work
  • Adequate medical documentation is not provided
  • Physician orders are not followed
  • The impairment is caused by drug or alcohol consumption
  • Minor application errors

If an SSDI claim is wrongly denied, the decision can be appealed at four levels: (1) Reconsideration; (2) Court Hearing; (3) Appeals Council Review; and (4) Federal Lawsuit.

Reconsideration

The first step in the appeals process is filing for a reconsideration.  During a reconsideration, a qualified SSA representative, not involved in the original determination, will review all evidence that has been submitted and will make an independent determination regarding your eligibility.

Court Hearing

If the reconsideration is unsuccessful, you will have sixty days to file for an administrative hearing before a judge.  During the hearing, you can present evidence, call witnesses (including vocational and medical experts), and have attorney representation.  The Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) will render a verdict regarding your claim, after reviewing all evidence.

Appeals Council Request for Review

If your claim is denied by the ALJ, an Appeals Council Request for Review can be submitted.  The Appeals Council (“AC”) in the Office of Analytics, Review, and Oversight (“OARO”) will evaluate the ALJ’s determination and either make its own decisions or ask the ALJ to rereview the application.

Federal Lawsuit

If your claim remains denied after exhausting all levels of appeal, you can file a lawsuit in a federal district court.  Bringing a lawsuit for SSDI or SSI benefits can be complicated.  As a skilled Wytheville Social Security Disability lawyer with decades of litigation experience, Mark Hurt can help you navigate the complexities of a SSDI lawsuit to help secure benefits as soon as possible.

Because most applications are denied and the appeals process can be lengthy, it is important to submit a claim expeditiously.  SSDI benefits do not begin until you have been disabled for six months, and the SSA does not begin calculating this waiting period until the month after they determine the disability arose.  This six month period coupled with likely appeals can result in the process dragging on for months – the faster you submit your claim, the sooner you may be able to collect.

Hire an Experienced Southwest Virginia Social Security Disability Lawyer

The likelihood of being denied benefits is extremely high; but, having a knowledgeable Southwest Virginia Social Security Disability lawyer represent you may greatly increase your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome from the initial claim filing.

At the Law Offices of Mark T. Hurt, we believe that disabled clients should be able to secure competent legal representation, even if they do not have the financial means to do so upfront.  If you hire our firm, you needn’t be concerned with how you are going to pay for our services – we only charge a fee, if we secure benefits on your behalf.

We represent our disabled clients on a contingency fee basis, meaning that we only collect a 25% fee of the backpay amount if we are successful in having benefits awarded.  This fee is typically capped at $6,000 by the SSA, and payments are generally issued directly to our firm by the SSA.

To ensure that our clients fully understand the expenses and costs associated with our representation, we will provide a detailed fee agreement prior to commencing representation and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

I was in an accident where I was not at fault. I was hurt and my vehicle was totaled, so I found myself in need of an attorney. I worked with Diana Blevins and she was AMAZING! I knew I was going to be in good hands from the first conversation I had with her. Diana quickly replied to my emails and phone calls. She was very sympathetic while asking questions about what happened and extremely informative! The process moved very quickly and we did win the case! I recommend this law office to anyone in need of an attorney. Great experience!

The 1st time I applied for SSDI I was promptly turned down. I had heard that this is typical, and having a law firm to guide and help is, so far, making a great difference. Ms. Jessica has made re-filing for SSDI so much easier and I feel more secure knowing that their expertise will more than likely make all the difference on the next decision. Keep ya posted!
This law firm is excellent to work with and I highly recommend them. Jessica was great to work with for me filing a disability claim through the Social Security Administration. She answered all my questions and concerns quickly and efficiently.

Mark Hurt is not your typical “dime a dozen attorney”. He and his team have went above and beyond to help my family with my fiancé’s worker’s compensation claim. If you have ever had to deal with workers compensation you know what I am talking about. I can honestly say we were very fortunate to have found a law firm who treated us like family and not just a paycheck. We will always be so grateful for everything they did for us.

I recently was given a speeding ticket while passing through Virginia. I found the Law Office of Mark T Hurt through Google and am so thankful I did. I worked with Frankie, where she kindly and respectfully asked about my ticket, encounter, and driving record to determine the best course of action. Even at the end of my free consultation, I asked if it would be okay to speak with other offices, and she gave me great advice. Because of their professionalism, understanding, and kindness, I chose Frankie at The Law Offices of Mark T Hurt. Frankie called me soon after my hearing to explain in detail what the outcome was and what my next steps were. She was able to reduce my ticket to where my insurance would not be affected, and I would not have my license suspended. I am very grateful to have Frankie represent me and highly recommend her to anyone. Hopefully, I won't have to, but I will use them again in the future if I ever need to.

I hired Mark Hurt’s office to represent me on a reckless driving charge. As you may have heard this is a misdemeanor and you must hire counsel. There are a lot of counsel options in this part of Virginia. I’m glad I went w their offices for a few reasons 1) communication - very proactive and tech savvy. Laura from their office called me several times and explained the situation then followed up by both text and email to keep me posted. She was great - email / text / call exactly at the level of I needed when I needed it. I was always in the loop and loved being able to communicate by text (not everyone really offers this). 2) results - we got a fantastic result (defective equipment) and I couldn’t be happier w how it turned out. I checked out a lot of options and went w them even though they were on the higher end of cost because of the communication. Glad I did.

I found myself in need of an attorney for a traffic ticket I received while traveling. I had no idea that a speeding ticket, would be misdemeanor reckless driving. Thankfully I found a law firm that understood my needs, and were able to go above and beyond, to get this legal proceeding behind me. Laura kept me updated along the way, and made sure I understood the process, and the possible outcomes. I’m more than satisfied with their firm, and should I ever need future assistance, I would definitely call upon her. Than you for taking such good care of me. I appreciate it.

Hope Carter assisted me with my Social Security Disability Claim once she got involved she took care of everything for me she walked me through the process and explained everything to me so that I wasn't blindsided by anything... she took the worry and stress off of my shoulders...I am sooo grateful to Hope for everything she did for me and also Jessica is great she stayed in contact with me once or twice a week after the hearing explaining everything to me in full detail as to what to expect in the next few weeks or months to come checking to see if I have any questions and how I was doing....I received a fully favorable decision in my case and I couldn't have done it without Hope she's awesome and I couldn't have gotten the piece of mind I had with everything in the next steps in the weeks or months afterwards without Jessica she's amazing...I would definitely recommend the Law Offices of Mark Hurt to anyone...especially Hope & Jessica they're the best!!!!!

Phenomenal firm and staff. From the minute Frankie picked up the phone, I knew I was in good hands. They really know their stuff over there. I was walked through the entire process and what to expect from A-Z. They were wonderful with communication and let me know what was going on every step of the way. Highly recommended!!

Grateful to have a law firm as great as Mark Hurt's here in Abingdon. Melanie Blankenship was extremely helpful with Estate Planning. I would recommend anyone to go to them for a professional yet pleasant experience!

Professional, Available, and in your corner. I worked with Mark & his team, specifically Laura Knowles to assist a family member who had a traffic ticket to deal with in VA. Dealing with a traffic ticket is stressful, dealing with a ticket a few states away felt like an impossible task. From the first phone call to the last I can say with certainty that Laura cares deeply about the success of each client that they work with. She had a game plan ready to be executed from the beginning that proved they know exactly how to deal with these situations and have a track record of success. We cannot thank your team enough for lifting a great weight off of our shoulders and helping my family member more than you know! If you need assistance, call Mark's team first.

I have appreciated having attorney Jennifer Baker help me with my workers' comp claim and settlement. She was patient and took the time to explain and walk me through everything. She was responsive and accessible. She took the time to address all aspects of my obligations to my claim and I would recommend her and her firm to any injured worker.

Jessica is absolutely amazing. I have been dealing with Social Security and it was going nowhere. Not only did she educate me more on the process and make me feel comfortable, but she also managed to accomplish more in one hour than anyone else has in months. She has been an absolute blessing to me during this hard time. I highly recommend contacting her if you're "stuck in the system". She truly cares and proves it by actually getting things done instead of making you feel like "just another case". God bless her and this firm for going to bat for me.

Frankie was very helpful to me over the phone and over email! Very communicative and will explain every step of the process to you, which was particularly good since I’m a bit of a nervous person and it was my first-ever ticket and in a state away from home! Also was very patient and reminded me when I needed to submit documents to her and the firm. Highly recommend!

The staff in this office were absolutely amazing, professional and courteous. Laura Knowles was extremely knowledgeable and quick to answer any questions and address any concerns I had. This firm is fast and efficient and the fees were extremely reasonable!! I definitely recommend this firm and will definitely use them again should the need arise!
