Lawyer Laura Amick Gadness represents individuals suffering from mental and physical impairments throughout the Social Security Disability process. She understands that any medical or psychological condition can disable a person if the condition significantly impacts his or her ability to work.

We accept SSDI and SSI cases throughout the entire state of Texas.

What Conditions Count As Disabling?

The Social Security Administration set forth the criteria for certain conditions to be considered disabling for adults. A link to those criteria is found here.

The Social Security Administration also considers certain conditions disabling under a compassionate allowance list. A link to the compassionate allowance list is found here.

Other mental and physical conditions can disable a person, despite not directly being listed in the Social Security regulations. If an unlisted condition significantly impacts a person’s ability to work, that condition can still be found as a basis for a disability claim.
