Coping With A Disability

The attorneys at Powell Law have represented the disabled in Social Security Disability cases since President Eisenhower first made disability insurance available to Americans in 1956. At Powell Law, we effectively assist clients throughout the entire Social Security Disability claims process.

For most people, adjusting to life with a disability can be difficult. The overwhelming majority of people have a tendency to take their physical health and ability to do simple, everyday activities for granted. Once afflicted with a disability, daily life may significantly change and require some transition. Disability benefits may further and ease this transition by providing economic support, especially during this important, primary period of transition.

Individuals with disabilities can still control their quality of life and maintain their independence to enjoy a complete and fulfilling life. Accepting help graciously and seeking all available options is advantageous. Local government and charitable resources may exist that assist the disabled with independent living.

Even if a person can’t reverse or otherwise change a disability, she can improve her quality of life by using every available treatment alternative and approach to minimize the particular effect of the disability. Refusing to acknowledge and accept the reality of a disability’s limitations will impair any positive proactivity. Such stubbornness prevents people from making significant changes toward progress and establishing new goals.

Accepting a disability is extremely difficult for most people. There is nothing wrong with grieving. In fact, it’s necessary to fully accept a disability. To accept a disability means to grieve the loss of a normal status with no corresponding personal stigma. Those with disabilities must be able to fully experience their feelings without judgment.

Applicants for social security disability benefits require the assistance of an experienced social security disability attorney to help navigate the paper trail generated by the disability application process.
