Social Security Disability: Mental Health Limitations
January 30, 2014
Mental health limitations are difficult to prove in a Social Security Disaiblity hearing; however, Attorney Burkham is committed to helping individuals with mental health problems be successful in their disability claims. In one recent case, the claimant had been turned down by several other lawyers and his hearing date was fast approaching. Attorney Burkham saw that this individual needed disability benefits in order to stabilize his life and her team of paralegals got to work fast getting updated medical records and doctors’ reports to prepare for a hearing that was scheduled only two weeks after taking the case. Attorney Burkham represented the claimant in his hearing and ultimately they were successful in obtaining benefits. Now the claimant has the financial means through benefits as well as insurance through the government to assist in stabilizing his life and allowing him to meet his obligations.
