Birmingham Alabama Disability Lawyer: Anxiety Disorder

Birmingham Alabama Disability Lawyer: Anxiety Disorder

You live in the Metro Birmingham area* and suffer from an anxiety disorder and now you received notice that your claim for Social Security Benefits has been denied-now is the time to contact a Birmingham Alabama Disability Lawyer. Many people believe that their initial application was reviewed in detail and that a denial of benefits means that they are not entitled to benefits, so they forgo taking any steps to appeal the denial; this is a mistake. The majority of persons who apply for Social Security Disability benefits are denied after their initial application. Often the Social Security Administration makes their initial decision without receiving all your medical records and the Administration simply does not have the resources to contact your main treating physicians to ask the detailed questions needed concerning your condition(s). The fact is that your best chance at being awarded disability benefits is after your appeal.

There are five recognized types of anxiety disorders the Social Security Administration recognizes as disabling when severe: Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Social Phobia. Anxiety Disorders differ from normal feelings of nervousness in that these symptoms include overwhelming feelings of panic and fear, uncontrolled obsessive thoughts, recurring nightmares and are often accompanied by physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, sweating, nausea and other uncomfortable sensations. These symptoms wash over a person for no apparent reason and do not easily pass.

If you or someone you care about lives in the metro Birmingham area and have been denied disability benefits for an anxiety disorder, but you believe you are unable to hold down sustained employment, don't give up, call an experienced Birmingham Alabama Disability Lawyer. Contact Powell and Denny
