Ohio Social Security Disability Attorney


Are you wondering whether you are eligible to receive Social Security disability insurance benefits? What about benefits under the Supplemental Security Income program? Our team of attorneys at Henson, Houston & Bostock can answer these questions. We understand that these federal benefit programs can be confusing. Many of our clients come to us after an application for Social Security disability has been denied, even though the applicant’s case was valid. We are prepared to help you understand this confusing area of the law and ensure that you receive the legal representation necessary to fight for the benefits you deserve for your injury.

Who is Social Security disability for?
These federal aid programs are designed for men and women who are unable to work due to a serious disability. A disability is defined by these programs as “an inability to perform substantial gainful activity by reason of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment, or combination of impairments, which has lasted or is expected to last at least 12 consecutive months, or end in death, taking into account the individual’s age, education, and work history.” If you or a loved one has suffered an injury as defined by these terms, you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security income disability benefits.

My application was denied! What should I do?
First of all, do not panic. About two-thirds of first-time applications are turned down by the United States Social Security Administration. You should be aware, however, that – of those who are rejected but then appeal the decision with help from a Social Security disability attorney – about one-third win the appeal and receive Social Security disability benefits. It pays to hire a lawyer and to ask the Social Security Administration to reconsider!
