Social Security Lawyer

Dealing with the Social Security Administration (SSA) is daunting and can make you feel like David to their Goliath. Let a social security lawyer from Canupp Law Office be your rock and sling. We are dedicated to handling Social Security Disability (SSD) insurance claims and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims and appeals. We are committed to fighting for all the benefits you deserve.

Perhaps you have a debilitating condition that is not physical — there may still be Social Security Disability benefits that our lawyers can help you claim. Mental disorder claims almost always require the help of a social security lawyer because proving the disability can be far more difficult. Coordinating the many tests and reports from various medical specialists and then putting them in a claim that Social Security finds acceptable is a big job with many “twists and turns.” Our office is experienced in Social Security cases, giving you the best chance for the most favorable outcome.

Obtaining Social Security Disability or SSI benefits is a process of “jumping through hoops.”  We have years of experience determining the most efficient method of getting you through those hoops and obtaining the benefits you need. Disability Benefits are based upon having a severe medical impairment, which means you have a diagnosed medical condition. 

Beyond the type of disability you have, the government has more claims than ever, meaning an adequately prepared claim is more important than ever. With more “baby boomers” and unemployed people applying, the government is struggling to keep up with the pace. With our help, your claim has a much better chance of being accepted more quickly.

How can a Social Security Lawyer help you?

  • From your first filing right through your claim approvals, we are there with you. We stand by you to ensure that you are fairly compensated as SSA regulations change. Some law firms handling claims for SSD and SSI benefits only take clients who have already had their initial application denied — we’re different. Applying for SSD and SSI is complex and confusing, and when we help you from the very beginning, the outcome is always better.
  • We take a no-nonsense approach. When we handle a case, we focus on two things: First, we win your case as quickly as possible. Second, we strategically and thoughtfully lay the groundwork for a successful appeal should your disability claim be denied. Our attorneys have years working on benefits claims inside the Social Security system. This gives you a distinct advantage when it comes to claiming disability benefits. We know that our strategic thinking gives you every opportunity for success available.

As a firm, we handle Social Security Disability, and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims at every administrative level for people throughout Kentucky. Recently, we have been included in a select group of attorneys around the nation that are able to work with disability files directly on the Social Security Administration Server. This access allows us to work in real-time with identical records to the Social Security Administration.

Military Veterans needing Social Security Assistance

Along with your Veterans Administration Disability Benefits, you may also be eligible for Social Security Disability and/or SSI Benefits. Navigating the complex web of VA Administration and Social Security regulations can be even more daunting than for those in civilian life. We stand ready to serve those who have so bravely served their country at a time when help is more important than ever when returning to civilian life. We would be honored to assist you with your claims.

SSI, SSD Injuries, Impairment, Conditions and Diseases

Common injuries and conditions, uncommon injuries and conditions, physical conditions, diseases, mental health issues — the truth is that almost any serious condition or illness has the potential to be disabling. Unfortunately, the fact that you are actually disabled won’t matter much unless you can convince the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you cannot work. Social Security Lawyer Brian T. Canupp, PSC, is dedicated to helping people obtain Social Security disability insurance (SSD) and supplemental security income (SSI) benefits.

Obtaining Benefits

While the above lists are not a full account of the disabling conditions, injuries, diseases, and impairments recognized by the Social Security Administration, they are some of the most common. 

Simply having one of these injuries or conditions is not enough to obtain benefits. The impairment must be carefully described to fit within one of the Social Security Administration’s accepted definitions of a disabling injury, illness, or condition. Our experience allows us to know what SSA and their administrative law judges are looking for when they review a claimant’s materials which allow us to help prepare your case accordingly.
