Social Security Disability Attorneys For Bipolar Disorder

Orlando Bipolar Disability Benefits Lawyers

Bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic-depressive disorder and manic depression, affects millions of people in the United States. Some people who are diagnosed with a form of bipolar illness can get their symptoms under control and function at a high level with medication and therapy, while others experience impairment of functioning to the point of being disabled.

If you or a loved one is unable to work because of a struggle with bipolar disorder, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, which are provided by the federal government. These benefits are designed to provide disabled Americans with income and medical coverage to provide for their essential needs.

At the law firm of Morgan, White-Davis & Martinez, P.A., our attorneys work closely with disabled clients throughout Florida to help them obtain the benefits they need. Whether your case involves a physical illness or a mental disorder, our firm can help you and your family build a compelling SSD or SSI case and pursue appropriate benefits.

What Are Bipolar Disorders?

Although many people may think they suffer from bipolar disorder because they go through periods of anxiety followed by periods of depression, simply experiencing that type of cycle is not determinative of bipolar disorder. Life is naturally filled with highs and lows, but bipolar disorders are characterized by severe swings from periods of extreme activity and euphoria, which is called mania, to deep depressive states. There are many other specifications that lead to a diagnosis of a bipolar disorder, and it is important to have a medical professional assess your situation if you believe you suffer from these illnesses.

Can I Receive Disability Benefits If I Have A Bipolar Disorder?

Although the Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes bipolar diagnoses such as bipolar I disorders and bipolar II disorders, it can be quite difficult to prove the existence of these illnesses to the extent that is required to receive benefits. Despite this hurdle, our attorneys use their vast knowledge of disability ratings and their extensive network of medical experts to build convincing arguments on behalf of those who suffer from bipolar disorders. We can help you fill out an initial application, contest a denial of benefits and even take your case up on appeal in federal court.
