Protecting People With Mental Impairments

The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs recognize that certain types of mental, emotional and psychological disabilities may render a person unable to return to work to earn a living. However, it can be difficult to obtain disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA) for mental disorders and other mental health issues without the assistance of a disability lawyer. There are significant procedural hurdles to overcome and many potential pitfalls that are easy to be trapped by when you file a disability claim on your own.

If you reside in Wisconsin or the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area and feel that you or a loved one has a valid claim for Social Security Disability payments and disability benefits, turn to Nicolet Law for help. We are a team of dedicated lawyers and legal professionals that understands the requirements for getting initial Social Security Disability claims processed quickly. Additionally, if you have already submitted a claim but have been denied, bring your Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income denial letter to us and discuss it with an attorney at our office.

We offer free initial consultations to review your case and discuss how mental health-related disability benefits work.

Mental Illness And Mental Disorders: Cognitive And Psychological Conditions

Some of the common mental impairments (sometimes referred to as mental disability) and emotional disorders that often qualify for Social Security Disability benefits include:

While most workers can easily equate a physical injury or physical impairments with the inability to return to work, it can be challenging for some to put psychological distress and mental health conditions in the same category. Fortunately, the government understands that the emotional trauma of depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress can be debilitating. Our attorneys have provided years of dedicated service to clients struggling with mental impairments and mental illness, and we have achieved success in a variety of disability-related cases involving a wide range of mental disorders.

In addition to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, our lawyers will fight every step of the way to help you seek all possible sources of income related to your condition, including potential workers’ compensation benefits and potentially filing a personal injury lawsuit. Nicolet Law Office understands the severity of psychological disability and will provide the legal guidance and attention you need.

If you receive an unfavorable disability determination, meaning your claim is denied, an attorney at our firm can request reconsideration on your behalf. In that situation, an administrative law proceeding will kick off, and an administrative law judge (ALJ) will reassess the claim that you (the applicant) filed. If the ALJ still denies your claim, then a disability attorney can guide you through the appeals process and help you make your case before the disability appeals council. With an experienced attorney at your side, you will have the assistance you need to provide proper medical evidence, testimony from a vocational expert and other items necessary to build the strongest disability case possible.

Disability Benefits For Alcoholism And Substance Addiction

In most cases, chemical dependency by itself will not qualify for government benefits. However, alcoholism and drug addiction are often the result of self-medicating for a mental or emotional disability that lies at the root of the abuse. An attorney at our law firm will advise you on strategies for determining the proper mental illness to improve your chances of receiving benefits and improving your mental health.

Speak With A Disability Attorney; No Fees If You Are Not Approved

Call us at 1-855-NICOLET or send an email with an explanation of your circumstances. A Social Security mental impairments lawyer will reply as quickly as possible to arrange a free case evaluation. If we handle your SSDI or SSI claim, you will pay no money upfront. We only collect fees if our SSDI attorney helps you get your claim approved. We can also answer any other questions you have about Social Security Disability Insurance, Supplemental Security benefits, Social Security Administration (SSA), workers’ compensation and all other disability insurance-related legal issues.
