Why You Need Medical Treatment to Qualify for Disability Benefits

If you are suffering from a physical or mental disability that prevents you from working, and you hope to obtain Social Security Disability (SSD) payments or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, it is critical that you are actively seeking medical treatment.

Many benefit applicants are worried about how they will be able to pay mounting medical bills without income, and believe they can save themselves headaches by not getting treatment. However, this lack of action can cost you the opportunity to obtain SSD or SSI assistance.

The Importance of Treating Your Condition

At the Douglasville and Columbus Law Office of Ellene Welsh, we have extensive experience helping individuals get SSD and SSI benefits. Attorney Ellene Welsh has been practicing law since 1988 and has detailed understanding of the benefits process. Our firm has helped numerous clients and families get the financial assistance they need after their initial claim was denied.

Call us at 770-884-1879 or 866-959-2946 to discuss your situation with an experienced and compassionate lawyer.

Medical Records Are Evidence of Disability

To prove a temporary or permanent disability, you must be able to show detailed medical records documenting your treatment. Without medical records, we have no evidence that you are in need of assistance, and we will not be able to help you get benefits.

We do, however, understand your monetary concerns. Serving clients in Douglasville, West Georgia and the surrounding communities, our firm has built a strong working relationship with local doctors, clinics and other health care providers throughout the years. We can advise you about medical providers who help uninsured patients and offer services at reduced costs. We also have information about low-cost prescription programs.

We will make sure you get information about all the latest available resources. Your job is to seek the recommended treatment, and our job is to help you get the SSD or SSI benefits you deserve.
