Atlanta Mental Disorder Lawyer

Trust Our SSD Lawyers to Handle Your Claim

Disorders in the U.S. are widespread. Regardless of who you are, anyone can be faced with a disability. While some can carry a higher risk of developing a disorder, others can incur them with no prior warning. Those that are left with a disorder can face a number of debilitations as a result. To tackle this issue, Social Security is used to cover the cost of some of these occurrences but will evaluate each case to determine if it qualifies. Not all disorders are the same. Some can face physical restrictions while others have a disorder that is mental. For those that have faced the challenge of a mental disorder, an Atlanta Social Security disability lawyer may be able to help secure compensation to cover the numerous expenses that can occur.

What Are the Symptoms of a Mental Disorder?

In order to determine eligibility, a medical professional will need to assess the mental capability of the individual. They can evaluate if a person does, in fact, have a disorder through a number of tests. Since a mental disorder can make many areas of life undoable, it will need to be decided what the person can and cannot do. For some, they may be unable to meet the demands of a job while others may not even be able to meet their basic daily needs such as caring for their hygiene. Mental disorders can range in the type of issues displayed as well as the severity level of each. Some can find it difficult to focus while others may have trouble with social functioning. Disorders can include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and mental retardation among others.
