Representing Clients With Severe Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
People who have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) typically experience symptoms that fall into two categories: repetitive thoughts and repetitive rituals. The rituals, or repetitive behaviors, are carried out to avoid anxiety. People with OCD may worry that bad things will happen if they do not perform the repetitive rituals, or they simply realize that they will experience anxiety until the rituals are performed.
People may suffer from mild, moderate or severe OCD. In the more severe cases, people with OCD may find it difficult or impossible to maintain employment.
If you suffer from OCD and your ability to work has been significantly impaired, you may be eligible to receive Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDIB). The experienced Social Security Disability lawyers at William C Babut PC, can help. We have represented thousands of clients in SSDIB cases and have a strong record of results in SSDIB appeals.
Understanding Our Case Approach
Cases involving mental disorders are challenging. While we can point to an X-ray or other physical evidence to prove the severity of many physical disabilities, there are no similar tests that clearly demonstrate the severity of a mental impairment.
To provide the effective representation our clients need in cases involving a mental impairment, we take time to listen to our clients, understand how their condition has impacted their life, gather medical records that are critical to their cases, help them understand key steps they can take to improve their chances for success, prepare them for questions they may be asked at their hearings and advocate on their behalf at their hearings.
We understand that mental health challenges can make life difficult. Our attorneys are committed to vigorously pursuing the benefits you need and deserve.
