Do You Suffer From Intense Anxiety?

It’s unfortunate that anxiety disorders have such a common name since the symptoms are anything but. People with medically diagnosed anxiety can experience shortness of breath, a racing heart, difficulty concentrating, fear of new people and situations, and even panic attacks in which they feel like they are dying. If these symptoms persist over months and years, daily life can become nearly impossible, to say nothing of holding down a job.

At Nicolet Law Office, our attorneys are deeply familiar with the problems anxiety can cause. We will work diligently to obtain the Social Security Disability benefits that you need to get your life back on track. We serve clients throughout Wisconsin and can serve you as well.

Until we have secured benefits for you, you will not pay.

How Severe Does My Anxiety Need To Be?

In general, the Social Security Administration will try to determine whether your anxiety condition prevents you from maintaining any kind of employment. This applies not only to the job you may have had before your anxiety first appeared but any other job as well.

Unlike physical injuries, mental health conditions can be difficult to quantify, which makes it harder to successfully pursue benefits. Along with a medical diagnosis of anxiety, you must demonstrate that it significantly interferes with your abilities in these areas:

  • Processing or remembering information
  • Interacting with coworkers and other people
  • Coping with changes in your environment
  • Completing tasks in an ongoing, timely manner

Some people with anxiety have moderate problems in all of these areas, while others have extreme problems in one or two. Both scenarios can lead to successful applications, but only when shepherded the right way.

My Application Was Already Denied. Am I Out Of Luck?

No. The Social Security Administration denies almost 75% of initial applications. Many of these applications are approved on appeal, but time is of the essence. After an application denial, you only have 60 days to appeal. Contact us as soon as possible if you or your loved one is in this position and need help with your SSD case.

Secure Your Future With Our Assistance

In the midst of all the paperwork, our goal is always to obtain the benefits you need to lead the best life you possibly can. Every one of our lawyers will treat you with respect, dignity and compassion. Please email us to discuss your situation or call our main office: 715-377-2141.

Our offices are located throughout Wisconsin, including Hudson, Eau Claire and Superior.
