Social security disability exists for the difficult, or nearly impossible, situation of continuing to work while dealing with a disabling injury or illness. The Social Security Administration protects citizens by granting benefits to qualified people with disabilities. The Social Security Act provides two different programs for receiving these benefits.Individuals can file for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Regardless which of these programs you are qualified for, our Social Security disability attorneys can help you get the benefits you deserve.

How does my disability claim affect my personal injury claim?Disabling injuries rarely involve legal claims that relate to just one area of the law. For instance, many injured claimants come to see us for a disability claim, only to find out that they have other claims such as workersâ�� compensation, personal injury, or long-term disability. A claimantâ��s ability to receive disability benefits can dramatically affect the success of those other claims. These claims need to be strategically worked together to ensure that maximum recovery is received. The Coye Law Firm has the experience and versatility to handle a variety of different claims together. With offices in Orlando, Kissimmee, Clermont and Melbourne, our Florida Social Security disability attorney team and legal staff offer a unique multi-discipline approach to disability, workersâ�� compensation, and personal injury, devoting our practice to representing individuals who are suffering from the pain and frustration of personal injures within all matters that relate to their disability.
