Obtaining Social Security Benefits After A Stroke

People who have suffered strokes can suffer a wide range of cognitive, physical and emotional impairments. Some may have difficulty walking, using their hands or speaking; others may have impaired reasoning skills or suffer depression or emotional problems. Though some victims of strokes and transient ischemic attacks can recover, others may suffer lasting effects.

If these effects have prevented a loved one from working for more than 12 months, he or she may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI or SSD) benefits. However, a significant percentage of initial SSDI claims are denied. Your loved one may need the services of an experienced Social Security Disability attorney to obtain benefits.

Advocates For North Carolina Stroke Victims

Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler has extensive experience handling Social Security Disability cases. We work hard to get results for our clients because we know the difference that success can make in their lives. When we represent you, we will work tirelessly to obtain SSDI benefits for you.

Documenting Disabling Conditions And Their Effects

The key to obtaining Social Security Disability benefits is to document the disabling effect of the stroke. The medical condition itself is important only so far as it can be linked to its disabling effects.

Having represented thousands of clients over the years, Ayers, Whitlow & Dressler has the experience, medical knowledge and advocacy skills needed to win SSDI claims on behalf of stroke victims. We will gather necessary information regarding the physical, neurological, cognitive and emotional effects of your stroke and work diligently to get your claim approved.
