Long-Term Disability Claims in Kentucky

If you are unable to work in Kentucky because of a disabling injury or illness unrelated to work, you cannot obtain workers’ compensation benefits. However, if you develop a long-term disability, you may be eligible for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits.

The SSD benefits attorneys at the Frank Jenkins Law Office have been helping disabled individuals in Kentucky obtain long-term disability benefits for over 20 years.  Contact us toll free at 859-389-9344 or use our online contact form. If you or a loved one is unable to work due to a disability that may be long-term or permanent, our attorneys can help you understand your legal rights and options for assistance.

Your initial consultation with us is free. We handle all cases on a contingent fee basis, which means you don’t pay any fees up front and won’t ever pay us a fee until we help you obtain SSD benefits.

What You Need To Know About Long-Term Disability

You or a loved one may be entitled to SSD benefits if you have a disease or disability that prevents you from working in any occupation for at least 12 months. Social Security definitions of disability are strict. You may have to go through several rounds of appeals to obtain the SSD benefits to which you’re entitled.

In order to prove you are disabled, you must show that you have a physical or mental impairment, as demonstrated through medical evidence, which prevents you from doing any sort of work on a full-time basis for at least 12 months.

The majority of long-term disabilities are related to musculoskeletal disorders, muscle and joint pain, spinal disorders, heart disease and circulatory disorders, cancer, or heart attack. Sometimes the disabling condition results from a serious injury caused by the negligence of someone else.
