COLORADO DISABILITY BENEFITS
WINNING DISABILITY BENEFITS IN COLORADO
Cannon Disability Law helps hundreds of disability clients in Colorado every year. Our clients live throughout Colorado, but we mostly represent clients in Denver, Grand Junction, and the Colorado Springs area. We represent all of our Colorado clients in hearings before administrative law judges at the hearing office that is nearest you.
The Denver Office of Hearings Operations (OHO) is located at 1244 Speer Boulevard, Denver, Colorado, 80204. The hearing office is served by RTD bus number 9 stopping at the West 13th Avenue and Elati Street bus stop. To plan your trip by bus or public transit, visit the RTD trip planner.
If you can no longer work due to a disability, you need to replace your income. We can help you do that. Our office will help you file your application for disability online at the Social Security website. Our goal is to help you every step of the way and that includes filing your initial application.
If you hire us to represent you before the Social Security Administration, we will also help you appeal any SSA denials. We will also file your request for reconsideration and request a hearing for you when the time comes. Find out more about how to file an appeal of an SSA denial here.
WE HELP YOU COLLECT MEDICAL RECORDS IN COLORADO
At Cannon Disability Law, we help you collect your medical records. We recommend that you collect your medical records now. Always keep a copy of your records. Especially, if you have surgery or a procedure, like an epidural steroid injection. It is also wise to keep copies of MRI’s, X-ray reports, CT scans, and other tests. Our goal is to use your medical records to make the strongest legal arguments that support your disability claim.
If you do not have health insurance, you still need to see a medical provider. On this website, we offer a list of free and low cost healthcare resources in Colorado. It is best to contact clinics and providers on the list and ask them their about their payment options. If you do not have medical insurance, there are some doctors who will accept cash or a payment plan. Also, some clinics and treatment is free.
OUR LAW FIRM PREPARES YOU FOR YOUR DAY IN COURT
One of the things that makes us different from other firms is that we help you before you meet the judge. We prepare you to be a witness in court. Before court starts you will know how to answer the judge’s questions and explain how your disability is preventing you from performing full-time work. When you start to apply for disability benefits, you need a SSD law firm who understands disability law and has won thousands of disability claims.
The SSA denies 70% of disability cases, often without taking into account the combination of your disabling impairments or reviewing all of your medical records. That is why our law firm has been fighting against the SSA’s decisions for over 30 years. You need a team that is on your side and who will best present your disability case to the SSA Judge.

HOW DO WE WIN YOUR COLORADO DISABILITY BENEFITS?
Qualifying disabilities can be both physical and mental. For example, you may be a person who has chronic back pain from arthritis. Or, you may have even undergone multiple lumbar surgeries or a neck fusion. While you may think that your spinal impairments are the only reason you cannot work, chronic pain often results in mental impairments, such as depression or anxiety. Mental symptoms also impair your ability to work.
Mental impairments, even if they create moderate symptoms are important. These impairments can impact your memory and concentration. Sometimes, mental symptoms make the difference between winning and losing your disability case. You may also have psychotic symptoms or difficulty getting along with family and friends.
These symptoms are important. The SSA is required to look at the combination of all of your impairments to see if they prevent you from working and that includes any mental symptoms that may stem from your physical impairments.
MEDICAL VOCATIONAL GUIDELINES FOR COLORADO DISABILITY
Your physical and mental impairments, combined with your education and skill level from your past work, may qualify you for disability benefits. When the SSA looks at your case, they might evaluate it under their special rules. These rules are known as the Medical Vocational Guidelines or the “GRIDS.” The GRIDS are helpful to disabled individuals whose impairment does not meet or equal a listing. However, their disability still prevents them from working.
Some people are unable to work due to adverse factors such as advanced age, the inability to learn new work skills, or lack of education. To learn more about qualifying for disability benefits, see our page about the Medical Vocational Guidelines . Also, if you are over 50 years old, read about how we help people who are over 50 years old obtain disability benefits.
