Indianapolis Benefit Claims Attorney With More Than 30 Years of Experience

Nobody plans to be disabled. If given the opportunity, almost all of us would work to provide for our needs and the needs of our families. Because people may suffer an unexpected injury or illness and not be able to work to support themselves, Congress passed laws to provide a safety net. That safety net comes in the form of Social Security benefits.

At the Law Office of Jim McKown, our Indiana Social Security benefits attorneys understand that accessing that safety net can be extremely difficult. With more than three decades of experience on our side, we can help.

Representation Above and Beyond

While our goal is to get you the benefits you need, there are other issues that may need to be addressed to further that goal or simply to help you, such as working with your doctor and educating you about the role of the vocational expert, the role of medical experts and the question of ability to work.

We assist people seeking benefits because of physical and mental impairments of all types. This includes those on the Social Security Administration's listings of impairments.

We frequently handle cases involving injuries and illnesses that are not clear-cut, including those that come with pain, fatigue and hard-to-measure symptoms such as back pain and psychological disorders. Even if your disability does not fit nicely within the impairment listings, we can help obtain the Social Security benefits you deserve.
