Nevada Disability Information
Winning Disability Benefits in Nevada
Cannon Disability Law helps hundreds of disability clients in Nevada every year. Our clients live throughout Nevada, including in Las Vegas, Henderson, Summerlin, and other Nevada cities. We represent all of our Nevada clients in hearings before the administrative law judges at the downtown Las Vegas hearing office. The Hearing Office is inside the Lloyd D. George Federal Courthouse.
If you can no longer work due to a disability, you need to replace your income and we can help you now. We can help you file your application for disability online at ssa.gov. 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 file appeal any SSA denials, file your request for reconsideration and we request a hearing for you when the time comes.
WE HELP YOU COLLECT MEDICAL RECORDS IN NEVADA
At Cannon Disability Law, we help you collect your medical records and make the strongest legal arguments to support your disability claim. If you do not have insurance, we offer a free and low cost list of healthcare resources in Nevada.
Most importantly, we prepare you to be a witness in court, 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 and we win. You need a team that is on your side every step of the way and who will best present your disability case to the SSA Judge.

HOW DO WE WIN YOUR DISABILITY BENEFITS?
Qualifying disabilities can be both physical and mental. For example, you may be a person who has disabling, chronic back pain from arthritis. Or, you may have even undergone multiple spinal surgeries or a multi-level 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 impairments, even if they create moderate symptoms are important. These impairments can impact your memory and concentration and 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.
Your physical and mental impairments, combined with your education and skill level from your past work, may qualify you for disability benefits. Many people qualify under the Medical Vocational Guidelines, also known as the “GRIDS.” The GRIDS are helpful to disabled individuals who may have an impairment that does not meet or equal a listing. However, their disability still prevents them from working. They may to be able 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 .
