Social Security Disability Lawyers For Anxiety And Panic Attacks

What Is An Anxiety Disorder?

All people experience some form of anxiety, either episodically or in a chronic manner, often in response to certain situations, thoughts or other stimuli. When anxiety — worry, fear or other feelings that people experience as excessively unpleasant or dystonic — produces significant impairment in day-to-day functioning, a psychiatric diagnosis of an anxiety-related disorder may be justified. Anxiety disorders can be debilitating; in some cases, the symptoms can render a person unable to maintain gainful employment, which can in turn cause other anxieties and problems.

At the law firm of Morgan, White-Davis & Martinez, P.A., our lawyers handle disability cases involving anxiety disorders of all types, helping our clients obtain the benefits to which they are entitled. If your case involves a debilitating mental or emotional disorder, our firm can help you and your family build a strong SSD or SSI case and pursue appropriate benefits.

What Else Should I Know About Panic Attacks And Anxiety?

The occurrence of panic attacks can indicate the presence of a clinically identifiable anxiety disorder such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or it can seem to exist as a standalone phenomenon. In many cases, a panic attack comes on unexpectedly and causes the person experiencing it to feel like he or she is out of control. Feeling very anxious in certain situations is not the same as a panic attack.
