“Why should I hire a disability lawyer?”
You’re not required to hire an attorney to represent you in your disability claim or appeal, but the statistics are clear: those who hire an attorney are 2.9 times more likely to receive benefits than those who do not.
That’s a difference that shouldn’t be ignored.
In fact, recent research shows that those who did not hire a disability lawyer were ultimately approved for benefits just 34 percent of the time, while those who did hire a lawyer received approval roughly 60 percent of the time.
The numbers don’t lie.

“Am I eligible for disability?”
If you have a disabling condition and are unable to work, you may have a claim for Social Security disability. A disability lawyer with experience helping clients in Statesville NC and the surrounding area can help you determine the best path forward.
In general, the Social Security Administration (SSA) relies on five important questions (along with additional criteria) in determining your eligibility. These are:
- Are you currently working and earning income? In order to qualify for benefits, you must not be earning more than $1,180 per year in wages.
- What is the extent of your disability? To qualify for benefits, you must demonstrate that your disabling condition “significantly interferes” with your ability to work and earn an income.
- Is your disability included in the “Blue Book”? The Social Security Administration has a “Blue Book” which contains a list of conditions that may automatically qualify you for benefits provided you meet certain other criteria.
- Are you able to do work that you’ve done in the past? The SSA will seek to determine if you are able to perform work similar to what you’ve done in the past 15 years.
- Are you able to do a different type of work? If you cannot perform work similar to what you’ve done in the past 15 years, the SSA will want to determine that you cannot do a different type of work with what is known as your “residual functioning capacity.”
A disability attorney serving Thomasville and the surrounding area can help you evaluate these questions and determine your best legal options for pursuing benefits.
