Eligible Disability Claims Attorney in New York

Does Your Condition Qualify for Social Security Disability?

Many people do not think their injury or illness qualifies for disability benefits. Whether you were hurt at work or elsewhere, through your fault or someone else's negligence, the main questions are:

— Will your physical or mental health issue prevent you from working for 12 months or more?— Does your disability meet the criteria for one or more of the official listed impairments?

At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we have nearly 15 years of experience in helping people qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). We work with you and your medical providers to satisfy the Social Security Administration that have eligible disability claims under their criteria.

We represent claimants in the Hudson Valley, the Capital District, New York City and throughout New York state. Contact us today for a free initial consultation.

We Have Won all Types of Eligible Disability Claims

Our knowledgeable attorneys handle both physical impairments and mental impairments, including many cases involving both. Below are some of the more common types of SSDI claims. (If you do not see your disability listed, please give us a call.)

  • Back, neck and spinal injury Herniated disk, degenerative disk diseases, fractured vertebrae, spinal cord injury, debilitating lower back strain or pinched nerves
  • Mental impairment Mental illness such as PTSD, depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks or schizophrenia, or cognitive impairments from brain injury, autism, ADHD or low IQ
  • Autoimmune diseases and pain disorders Fibromyalgia, lupus, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lyme disease, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome or complex regional pain syndrome
  • Seizure disorders
  • Diabetes and complications
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease or lung ailments
  • Hepatitis and liver disease
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Vision loss or blindness

Some diagnoses automatically qualify for disability benefits. Other impairments require additional proof that your condition prevents you from working full-time. Sometimes age, education level or a secondary medical condition makes the difference between qualifying or not.

Our lawyers are skilled at documenting your diagnosis, treatment and doctors' restrictions to show that you meet the definition. We can help you prepare your initial application for the best chance of securing benefits, and we have a high rate of success on appeals of rejected claims.
