Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability attorneys in southeastern North Carolina
If you are injured or develop another medical condition that prevents you from working, then you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Girdwood & Williams is committed to fighting for our clients when they are being denied access to these benefits.
Social Security Disability Benefits
Generally, there are two simple requirements:
- You paid into the Social Security system over a number of years working.
- You are unable to work for a period of 12 months or more.
- Age matters. For those 50 years and older, the requirements are somewhat less strict to qualify for Social Security Disability.
If you are unable to work and applied but were still denied, don’t get discouraged; this is very common. The Social Security Administration appeals process is available but can be overwhelming without help. Denied claims can still be approved after an appeal and hearing.
How Girdwood & Williams can help
If your application is denied, Girdwood & Williams can represent you at your SSA hearing. It’s important to contact us immediately after you are notified of being denied because there are time limitations to challenge SSA’s ruling. You don’t have to take no for an answer and go away.
Our firm will guide you through all points of this process — not just the filing, paperwork and deadlines, but also gathering evidence like medical reports and witness testimony. If your disability is from a job injury or a car accident, we can also help you pursue these claims.

There is no fee unless we win your appeal. Even if you win your case, we are still limited in how much we can charge.
